ABOUT THE WALL PRODUCT RATING PROGRAM

Last Updated February 1, 2021

The CRRC is working in collaboration with industry and end users on the development of a third-party rating program for exterior wall products. The CRRC Wall Rating Program will be similar to the CRRC’s Roof Product Rating Program, with product ratings based on the surface radiative properties of exterior wall products. A Rated Products Directory and CRRC Product Label will be created for wall products to help end users identify rated products and their radiative property values.

The new program is anticipated to be launched in early 2022.

Milestones

  • June 17, 2019: The CRRC membership amended the organization’s bylaws to include the rating of exterior wall products
  • July 2019–August 2020:  A Wall Rating Steering Committee (WRSC) of 30 members representing manufacturers, government, utilities, building enclosure experts, and other interested parties evaluated the technical aspects of the program; developed the program financial model; and conducted an initial marketing campaign to solicit interest and support. The WRSC submitted a program proposal to the CRRC Board of Directors for the approval of the Wall Rating Program
  • September 24, 2020: The CRRC Board of Directors approved the Wall Rating Program
  • November 12, 2020: The CRRC Board of Directors approved the roster of appointed members to the Wall Rating Program Committee (WRPC). 
  • Early 2022: The anticipated launch of the Wall Rating Program
