CERTIFICATION & MEMBERSHIP

We take pride in our certified status, which affords us exclusive access to specialized products. Our array of certifications encompasses:
INSULATING GLASS CERTIFCATION COUNCIL
The Insulating Glass Certification Council (IGCC) exists to offer the most credible, efficient, and easy-to-use product certification to end-users and the public. We provide assurance to the public our participants conform to the expected requirements for Insulating Glass Unit performance.
SAFETY GLAZING CERTIFICATION COUNCIL
The Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that provides for the certification of safety glazing materials. SGCC maintains a certification program under which manufacturers of safety glazing products voluntarily submit their products for testing to an SGCC-approved independent testing laboratory. The testing procedures used in SGCC's program are consistent with those established in
ANSI Z97.1, CPSC 16 CFR 1201. These specifications call for practical safety tests to establish that safety glazing materials, if broken, will tend to reduce the risk of injury or death.
