(Ottawa, ON) – Fenestration Canada announces changes to the Executive serving the association for 2014-15.

Al Dueck, President of DUXTON Windows & Doors has resigned effective July 15, 2014

“The past 2 . years have been an excellent experience, working and getting acquainted with a group of very dedicated professionals within the industry. However, I have become aware that I need to find a better balance between immediate family and a young, growing business. It has been my special pleasure to participate in the creation of our own Ottawa office. Robert Rivard, Executive Director, and his team have made a significant impact and did an excellent job organizing the AGM in Winnipeg. I intend to make ongoing efforts to continue to give back through continued involvement as the importance of the Fenestration Canada continues to grow.”

Fenestration Canada is pleased to announce the release of our web based North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS) performance calculator tool for the Canadian window and door industry. The new tool calculates the NAFS minimum performance grade (PG), minimum positive and negative design pressure (DP), minimum water penetration resistance test pressure and minimum Canadian air infiltration and exfiltration requirement to comply with any provincial building code referencing NAFS-08 and A440S1-09. The tool calculates these values for 679 locations across Canada, at heights from 10 to 100 metres, for both open and rough terrain.  We anticipate that this tool will become the one stop source for determining fenestration performance levels for code compliance across Canada. It is now live and available to the fenestration industry, builders, specifiers and code officials at www.fenestrationcanada.ca.

Meetings & Seminars

June 23, 2014
The Fenestration Canada Annual Meeting and Conference held at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg, Manitoba saw just under 200 participants register for meetings, social activities and various program events. It was one of the most successful offerings ever!

The association wishes to acknowledge the tremendous support received from sponsors and Fenestration Manitoba for helping make this event what it was. We wish to particularly underscore the tireless contribution of Al Dueck (Duxton Windows), who persevered in promoting the conference and effectively dispelling any misperceptions anyone had about Winnipeg as a site for the conference.
