Title 24 compliance, Cover Glass USA

Title 24 is a set of mandatory requirements in California for fenestration products & exterior doors. These requirements were originally implemented in 1978 to establish energy efficiency standards for residential and non-residential buildings; these standards are updated periodically.

The section of Title 24 code related to our sliding glass panels is Section 110.6, which states:
