NIA Partners with NIBS
The MTL Product Catalog at is the best way to reach a large audience of insulation end users. Soon that audience will be increasing in size, thanks to a new program with the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS). Recently, NIBS formed the National Mechanical Insulation Committee (NMIC) for Building and Industrial Applications. This group's objective is to bring together governmental agencies, private industry, and other organizations that are concerned with the design, installation, and maintenance of mechanical insulation.

The NMIC will be a central gathering house for information and data on codes, standards, industry guides, published practices, test methods, and educational programs related to mechanical insulation in building and industrial applications. Once it gathers, verifies, and organizes that information, it will all go online as the Mechanical Insulation Design Guide (MIDG), a part of NIBS' larger Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG). Every day people are trying to determine their insulation needs, and now there is a website that gives them the answers. The WBDG and the MTL Product Catalog offer the only online resource that takes users through a step-by-step process to determine exactly what type of insulation will work for their project. If your products aren't listed, your company is missing out! More than 200,000 users a month are turning to this one-of-a-kind site to get their insulation questions answered, and now those users can be directed straight to your MTL listing!

That's right: The National Insulation Association's (NIA's) online MTL Product Catalog will be a key part of the MIDG and will be accessed by an audience of thousands. This is the way to gain exposure for your products. Don't miss this opportunity! With MTL Product Catalog, your latest product information is available immediately, around the clock, and you can update it whenever you want, as many times as you want. Plus, you can upload as many PDFs as you like.

More About the MIDG
The MIDG will be a decision tree that allows users to walk through the process of deciding on insulation materials, step by step. As it is conceptualized right now, users will simply click on one or more of the insulation materials listed in the guide. They will then be directed to the MTL Product Catalog, where they can further research the technical literature submitted by individual manufacturers. The searchable database makes it easy for specifiers, distributors, engineers, and other end users to find your products. So not only will your product information be on, the website thousands turn to each day as their insulation resource, but it will also be linked to the new MIDG section of NIBS' WBDG (which is quickly becoming the primary online information source for building-design professionals).
