New window and door standard in place
The 2011 edition of AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440, NAFS - North American Fenestration Standard/Specification for windows, doors, and skylights (NAFS-11) is now available
The 2011 edition of AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440, NAFS - North American Fenestration Standard/Specification for windows, doors, and skylights (NAFS-11) has received final approval and is now available.
The 2011 NAFS standard is already referenced in the 2012 editions of the International Building Code and International Residential Code.
“The newest version of NAFS was created to allow consumers more product choices and clearer specifications. This expanded document will service the fenestration needs of the building community for many years,” says Ray Garries, corporate manager of external affairs for JELD-WEN Inc., who served as AAMA’s JDMG co-chair.
The standard underwent a thorough restructuring, with separate sections for products, materials and components, as well as new product criteria sections for parallel opening windows and secondary storm products. The standard also expands the mullion and tubular daylighting device (TDD) sections and adds lead content requirements for hardware.
Copies of the standard are available for online purchasing from the Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) at www.wdma.com.
