August 11, 2016  By AAMA

Aug. 11, 2016 – The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will cover the new California building energy standards going into effect as of Jan. 2017, as well as some recently published installation documents, during a two-part webinar at 12 p.m. EDT on Tues., Aug. 23. These topics were chosen due to their impact on a large segment of the industry. This online presentation, “California Title 24 and Beyond: Industry Standards for Robust Installation of Challenging Window/Wall Systems,” is sponsored by the AAMA Western Region and is free and open to all in the industry.

“The first part of this webinar will offer those participating an early view of what to expect in California at the start of 2017,” says Greg Lambas (Cascade Windows), chair of the Western Region Board. “The Western Region encourages the industry to learn about the new standards now in order to prepare for next year.”

Ken Nittler (WESTLab) will discuss fenestration related changes for the new California Title 24 standards, as well as the 2019 standards development process.

Additionally, in part two of the webinar, James Katsaros (DuPont Building Innovations) will review published documents developed by the FMA/AAMA/WDMA Installation Committee, which includes the extreme exposure series and the recent publication of integration of windows with Foam Plastic Insulated Sheathing (FMA/AAMA/WDMA 500-16). The future direction of the committee, which is currently focused on the complex world of replacement windows, also will be presented.
