Article Summary: 

The blog post by RDH Building Science discusses an alternative to NAFS testing for Part 9 buildings. The post outlines the current requirements for fenestration testing in Part 9 buildings, including the use of the North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS) test. The blog then proposes an alternative testing method, which involves using computer simulation software to model and predict the performance of fenestration systems. The post highlights the benefits of this alternative method, including cost savings and increased flexibility in designing fenestration systems.
