Rating Site-Built Fenestration:  The 2008 update of California’s Building Energy Standard (Title 24) approved the use of CMA to determine energy-related performance ratings for site-built fenestration in nonresidential buildings.

CMA, or “Component Modeling Approach,” is a Product Certification Program from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) which enables energy-related performance ratings for nonresidential fenestration products.

CMAST or CMA Software Tool, is NFRC approved software which allows a user to create a fenestration product “virtually,” and generate its energy-related performance ratings (U-Factor, SHGC, VT).
