QAI has now added another accreditation to their industry-leading services in the testing, inspection, certification, and code-compliance of building products. In August 2010, QAI became accredited by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) to perform energy-efficiency computer simulations of Doors, Windows, and Skylights, a requirement to qualify for the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star labeling program. This will complement QAI’s existing Canadian Energy Star program.
“We have been active in the Energy Star programs in Canada for years, and this will now allow us to extend the program to manufacturers selling products in the US. We are excited about this expansion of services and feel it will become a great benefit for our door and window manufacturer clients in the US and Canada.” – Chris Scoville, Senior Project Manager (NFRC)
QAI Laboratories Inc. (QAI) is a leader in certification, testing and inspections of products for manufacturers and retailers. Their registered certification logo provides officials and consumers assurance that products certified by QAI meet the standards referenced on the label.
QAI strives to provide its clients with the fastest and friendliest services in the industry. For more information on the NFRC program, please contact QAI or visit our website atwww.qai.org:

NFRC is a non-profit organization that administers independent rating and labeling system for the energy performance of windows, doors, skylights, and attachment products. NFRC is the only agency in the United States permitted by the EPA to issue Energy Star ratings and labels for doors, windows, and their accessory products. The goal of the NFRC is to provide accurate and reliable energy performance ratings that enable consumers to make fair comparisons of different products, informed product choices, and determine if products meet local codes.
