At Everite Windows we offer a-rated casement windows as standard.
A minimum ‘C’ rating is required to meet Building Regulations. Those achieving a C-rating or above demonstrate they have been designed, manufactured and tested to provide a good level of overall thermal efficiency. All window companies must now sell at least a ‘C’ rated window or a window with a 1.6 U Value.
BUT we don’t believe in offering the minimum. Our a-rated windows are made up of a steel reinforced 70mm 5-chamber Rehau Total 70C profile and incorporates a 28mm Pilkington’s KS (soft coat) glass, warm edge spacer bar and argon gas filling.
To enable customers to make the best choice when looking at Everite Windows range of windows, the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) have introduced a Window Energy Ratings Scheme. It is now possible to rate a window from any given window supplier. The finished window combination is independently tested and awarded a rating from A to G.
But what does it all mean?
The BFRC Scheme is the UK’s national system for rating the energy efficiency of windows and is recognised within the Building Regulations as a method to show compliance for your replacement windows installation.
Window Energy Ratings use a consumer-friendly traffic-light style A-E ratings guide similar to that used on ‘white’ goods (such as fridges, freezers, washing machines etc…). This ratings label can be used by you to make more informed choices about the energy efficiency of the windows you are looking to purchase.
With carbon emissions high on the global agenda and the current high cost of fuel, we are all looking for ways to make our homes more energy efficient.
