Tommy Jackson

Tommy Jackson graduated from Brewster Vocational School in 1957 with a 4-year degree in sheet metal. He went to work in the union and took another 3 years of courses in the layout of sheet metal. He taught classes at the tech school and became the lead person in a sheet metal shop. He then became a consultant for Owens Corning and for twenty-five years taught new hires and their customers how to lay out ductwork in fiber glass duct board, and wrote manuals for 1" and 5/8" duct board systems. He has worked with many code inspectors across the country to help them understand what to look for when inspecting duct board systems to meet the local building codes. For five years, he was an instructor for NAIMA teaching courses on fiber glass duct board at more than 45 Vo-Tech schools across the U.S.

Pete Hays

Pete Hays spent 37 years at Owens Corning where he was a Division Engineer in marketing, managed various laboratories in their Technical Center, and provided technical support for air handling insulation products. He has been involved with fiber glass duct board since 1971 and has worked extensively in the development and testing of duct insulation products and systems. Part of his work with fiber glass duct board and other products led him to participate on many building code committees as well as industry, national and international standards organizations. Pete was instrumental in the development of the NAIMA Train-the-Trainer duct board fabrication program and continues to represent the insulation industry at ASHRAE and ASTM.
