Have a Good Night
Day three of NFRC's Summer Membership Meeting has concluded.
The NFRC Board of Directors will meet tomorrow morning from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Be sure to check back for the most up-to-date information available.
A number of other notable motions presented during this meeting blocked passed. For example:
spending much of its time discussing the NFRC 100 Attachments Ballot, which included many comments. Several comments were found to be substantive and persuasive. Among the motions passed:
After reviewing a ballot comment stating that attachments should only be rated over worse-case reference windows, the group engaged in a lengthy discussion about base case windows. The comment was found to be persuasive and substantive and a motion passed to take the issue back to the Task Group to consider this negative when determining the base case window(s).
The Subcommittee concluded its business with the NFRC 100 – 2010 ballot. A motion passed to approve all the sections balloted with the exception of 5.2.5 and Tables 5-1 and 5-2 and move them forward to Technical Committee for approval.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) Subcommittee
Following the U-factor discussions, the SHGC Subcommittee conducted its business. With no reports and no unfinished business, the discussion quickly turned to ballots.
One ballot addressed the possibility of changing certain digit calculation requirements (from 3 to 6) to match current CPD 2.0 database requirements. The concern here was that the requirements should apply to all products, not just to products with applied films.
Finally, the SHGC Subcommittee also deemed it prudent to encourage the formation of a working group to refine language addressing ratings for garage doors.
