Lynn Miller, PGT Innovations code compliance manager, was recently appointed chairperson of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) impact-resistance task group.
Miller will serve as chair of the task group that oversees the development of the ASTM E1886 and E1996 standards, which are global standards that set the criteria for performance of exterior windows, curtainwalls, doors and impact protective systems affected by windborne debris in hurricanes.
“I am truly honored to have been chosen as chair of this esteemed task group,” said Miller. “I look forward to working with the other task group members as we continuously strive to refine these standards for building envelope products to better protect our citizens and buildings from the destructive forces of hurricanes.”
Miller joined PGT Innovations in 2010. In his current role, he oversees the preparation of all PGTI product certification documents, including structural calculations, test planning and verification of testing protocols. He also provides project-specific engineering services for PGTI products.
“We are incredibly proud of Lynn’s appointment to this ASTM task group that is critical to the development of the impact standards which help protect individuals and secure buildings across the United States,” said Jeff Jackson, president and CEO of PGT Innovations. “At PGT Innovations, we are fortunate to have a number of our team members extend their talents for the improvement of the fenestration industry and to continue innovating to create stronger, safer buildings and homes.”
Miller is a voting member of the ASCE 7-22 windload subcommittee and is actively involved in various fenestration task groups at ASTM and FGIA. He also serves as president of the Southeast region of FGIA.
