“With the Acermi site, I can find out if a product is certified or not. I feel that the three search criteria, by product, manufacturer or use, are very complementary. As a distributor, I primarily perform product or manufacturer-based searches. It should be noted that the three possible search approaches enable users to research products quickly and efficiently. Anyone tasked with writing a specification for a particular use will find every corresponding product. If one of our customers has a specific question, a family and manufacturer-based search will be performed. I think that the professionals will lean more towards “family” and “manufacturer-based” searches. An architect or an engineering firm would focus more on “use”. The site also provides information on tax credits and thermal resistance, which can be helpful when searching for products. Finally, the use-based search enables users to rapidly locate a product with a thermal resistance above 7, which is appreciable, while still comparing all manufacturers.”
