Vista First Window Film Certified By National Fenestration Rating Council

During its 15th Anniversary Vista Dealer Conference in Cancun, Mexico CPFilms announced that a number of Vista(r) window films have received certification from the independent National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC).

Vista window films are the first NFRC-certified window film products in the world.

The certification validates that the product specifications listed by CPFilms(r) meet strict glazing industry standards. The specifications define the energy performance benefits of approximately 20 Vista window film products.

The NFRC is an independent, non-profit organization established during the energy crisis of the 1970's. Its mission is to promote energy savings associated with fenestration -- defined as products filling openings in building envelopes such as windows, doors, and skylights. The U.S. Department of Energy monitors the activities of the NFRC.

Vista dealers will benefit significantly from the ability to confirm the energy-savings benefits to their customers. NFRC certification is also one of the first requirements for receiving an ENERGY STAR rating, widely recognized by consumers and increasingly popular as more and more people recognize the need for energy conservation in all aspects of their lives. CPFilms will continue to support its dealers by pursuing NFRC certification for additional Vista and LLumar(r) products and by working toward ENERGY STAR ratings.

NFRC-certified film will be packaged in Certified Product Designation (CPD) boxes for residential and commercial products; the box labels will indicate Visible Light Transmission and the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient. Dealers will now be required to include the CPD number on warranty forms, and this will give consumers assurance that the installed film meets established industry standards.

"Energy savings is front page news, and Vista is, again, leading the market by providing this independent energy savings certification from NFRC," said Kent Davies, President of CPFilms. "The NFRC certification benefits our dealers by positioning Vista window films as the recognized source for energy savings."

"NFRC testing certifies the energy-saving benefits of our products. This is a great example of the significant steps our company continues to take in order to deliver the best product available for our dealers and customers," said Davies.
