The Reflective Insulation Manufacturers Association International (RIMA-I) has just put a new face on the reflective industry with its newly-designed website at www.rimainternational.org.
In April of 2008, the association went international; and since that time, new members have joined, new programs have been launched and new information has been made available on the industry. With the re-design of the association website, more of this information is accessible than ever before, according to RIMA executive director Mary Edmondson.
Site visitors will find a wealth of technical information, including the handbook, "Understanding and Using Reflective Insulation, Radiant Barriers and IRCCs,” technical bulletins on specific industry applications and issues, a list of required and recommended testing, the Interior Radiation Control Coatings Study and many articles on these industry products. This section is always growing with new technical bulletins and information added regularly, Edmondson says. Visitors can also learn about the members that support the association, when and where meetings and events take place, RIMA leadership and organization history as well as how to go about becoming a member.
Some of the new features include the new “What’s Hot” section on the opening page, which highlights the most recent industry developments and association news; the “Myths & Misconceptions” section that addresses common industry questions; the new Building Awards section featuring 2008 contest winners and the soon-to-be-launched Product Verification Program which will verify product test data for participating member products. There is the option of joining the association mailing list in order to receive press releases and information on what’s happening within the industry .
RIMA International welcomes visitors to share their needs so we can continue to improve upon the information available on the site. For more personalized assistance, use the e-mail link provided or simply contact the association directly at 800-279-4123.
