Presented by Paul Bove, Engineer at the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), this webinar is complimentary and open to the public.

The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) will host a webinar entitled “TDI Requirements for Fenestration - New Code Update” on Tuesday, January 12 at 11:30 a.m. Eastern. Presented by Paul Bove, Engineer at the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), this webinar is complimentary and open to the public.

As a result of the adoption of new codes, changes have occurred in the TDI windstorm program. This presentation will cover those changes and how they affect fenestration products that are used on structures within the TDI windstorm program area. Webinar participants will learn more about Designated Catastrophe Areas in Texas and how those designations impact the requirements for impact-resistant fenestration products in Texas coastal areas.

The presentation will also explain nuances for impact-resistant fenestration product requirements in Harris County, Texas, and the Houston area, as well as changes due to new I-Codes adopted in Texas coastal regions as of September 1, 2020.

“With a housing boom underway as more people take advantage of low interest rates and relocating to Texas from other parts of the U.S., this webinar provides FGIA members with a chance to learn the latest about Texas requirements and to ask their specific questions of Paul Bove,” said Kathy Krafka Harkema, FGIA U.S. Codes and Regulatory Affairs Manager.
