Fenestration Canada has been receiving phone calls and e-mails daily about NAFS requirements in building codes in various provinces being delayed. These rumors are just that - rumors. After considerable review across the country as of March 1, 2014 this is the status:

January 13, 2014

Fenestration Canada has published a NAFS labelling guideline document for use and reference by the Fenestration industry.  The guidelines will be of great interest to manufacturers, builders, specifiers, and building code officials dealing with the compliance of fenestration products to the provincial building codes referencing NAFS-08 and the Canadian Supplement to NAFS-08.  Please click here for your copy of the guidelines.

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.
