Research Subcommittee to Present Summary Pages Virtually on June 18

The National Fenestration Rating Council’s (NFRC) Research Subcommittee will present two research summary pages for member approval during an upcoming virtual meeting, which will be held on June 18, 2012.

One summary page will address a crucial U-factor validation issue, and the other will consider an alternate method to generate a solar spectrum. If these summary pages are approved at the Research Subcommittee, the summary page proponents will prepare full RFPs for ballot at the fall 2012 NFRC membership meeting in October.

NFRC now hosts only two face-to-face meetings each year, so providing this special Research Subcommittee session will expedite important research and enable NFRC Board consideration for approval at the fall 2012 meeting.

“Holding this online meeting balances the need to move quickly with the need to find a solution that positions all of us for long-term growth,” said NFRC Meetings Manager, Cheryl Gendron. “It’s a solution that meets our members’ immediate needs while creating a stronger foundation for our fall meeting.”
