Window Film's Momentum Builds Throughout North America
WASHINGTON, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Window Film Association (www.IWFA.com), in launching a membership drive and conference registration program, noted significant achievements of the nonprofit association in the last six months.
Recent recognition of window film as an important aftermarket material in the building and automotive markets include:
- A recent vote by the California Energy Commission to include window film in the state building code starting in 2014, the first state in the nation to make this progressive decision.
- A statewide analysis reporting that window film when used in aftermarket application on homes with single pane glass windows in California could gain a greater energy advantage than using R-38 insulation in their home's ceilings.
- Recognition by the Department of Transportation confirming for the first time that window film with a 70 percent visual light transmission is permissible on commercial trucks exceeding 13 tons across the USA.
The IWFC provides an educational and networking venue for film technicians, company owners, managers and suppliers. In addition to the seminars, accreditation offerings and trade exhibition, the event is host to the International Window Film Tint-Offs™, a popular competition for automotive and architectural technicians to showcase professional expertise in action.
