29 Jul 2013

BFRC has officially launched a new ‘A+’ band at the top of its energy efficiency scale for Window Energy Ratings (WERs).

BFRC is now accepting applications for the new ‘A+’band, which applies to windows only. Any BFRC ‘A’ rated product which achieves a rating index of 10 or more can be upgraded to an ‘A+’ for an administration fee of £50 (ex VAT). 

Alternatively, manufacturers can also apply for new ‘A+’ licences.  All applications must be accompanied by a simulation report and can be made either directly to BFRC or through an Independent Agency.

These new ‘A+’ licences are available both as Simplified Energy Licences (SELs) and Detailed Energy Licences (DELs).  The first batch of ‘A+’ rated windows will all be announced on the same day in mid to late August.

“The availability of the BFRC ‘A+’ rating band allows manufacturers to offer the most energy efficient product to homeowners,” commented BFRC Chairman Giles Willson.  “It also allows the most technically advanced producers to benefit from the marketing opportunities derived from BFRC ratings and being among the first in the industry to offer ‘A+’ windows”.
