The AWNEX Certification Installtion Program (ACIP)
AWNEX regards the installation of its products as the most critical part of the entire process. We take great pains to ensure that our products are designed and engineered to be a safe, attractive architectural element of any building we enhance. If it is not installed right, it spoils the look, safety and customer goodwill of the whole project. It is the installation of the product, in a new or existing building, that is at least equal in importance to any other facet in the ultimate satisfaction of the customer.
