Windows, Doors and Skylights Code Changes Webinar
December 16, 2015 | 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Description: The North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS) came into effect in December 2013 and the new energy and ventilation requirements for low-rise housing in December 2014. These code requirements introduced major changes and some complex implementation challenges. The revisions were developed through extensive consultation with the residential construction sector, including manufacturers of windows, doors and skylights, building officials, building specifiers and designers and building officials. This webinar covered these code changes.
