IGMA Certification
The world’s leading organization on the engineering and manufacturing of insulating glass

Why do insulating glass manufacturers certify their products?
As a general statement, irrespective of industry affiliation, manufacturers who certify their products demonstrate commitment to their customers and their products. Certification provides assurance to customers, whether they are window and door manufacturers, building code officials, architects and specifiers or home buyers, that the insulating glass unit (IGU) product they are buying is designed to meet or exceed the applicable code or standard.

As more and more states/provinces are adopting the new energy codes there is an increased demand for thermal performance certification. Hand in hand with that is longevity. That is what IG certification is all about—testing the durability of the edge seal system.

Florida Energy Code Puts a Wrap on IGMA Conference
In many ways, the state of Florida is one of the leaders in influencing building and energy code development and implementation throughout the United States.

Last Friday, attendees of the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) 2015 Winter Conference were treated to a presentation by Florida code expert Arlene Z. Stewart of AZS Consulting. Stewart gave an update on the new Florida energy code, which goes live in just a few months.

Experts Weigh in on Sustainability, Green Efforts at IGMA
No extensive discussion regarding the modern manufacturing of building products and construction can be had without hitting on the topic of sustainability.

All the trending acronyms were discussed—LCA (life cycle assessment), EPD (environmental product declaration), PCR (product category rule), and the newer HPD (health product declaration), among others.
