Our Association

The Window & Glass Association New Zealand is the national association representing the window, door and glass industry. Established in 1965, we are a not-for-profit, independent organisation with the goal to develop and maintain high technical and professional standards and to create a better built environment for New Zealand consumers.

 

We have national and international recognition as a highly respected, compliant, self-regulating body; this is reflected in our high membership levels, with the majority of window, door and glass businesses in New Zealand being certified members of the Association. Membership is voluntary. That’s over 430 reputable companies and individuals involved in the manufacturing, supply and installation of windows, doors, glass and components who have signed up to our core values, compliance and professional standards.

What We Do

Our written constitution guides all our activities, and spans three main categories: member technical and business support; active participation in the New Zealand building industry; advocacy for ongoing technical innovation.

    Key Activities

  • Ongoing development of glass, window and door performance standards and specifications.
  • Co-operation with other building industry bodies.
  • Provision of an independent dispute resolution service between consumers and Association members.
  • Administration of the WEERS energy efficiency tool.
