K value:
In some parts of the world, thermal transmittance is referred to as the K value. The units of K value are usually W/m2K, although it is sometimes quoted in kcal/hrm2ºC. The latter unit is slightly larger, which may make K values appear smaller. To convert from kcal/hrm2ºC to W/m2K, multiply by 1.163.
