Your guide to Window Energy Ratings

I’m sure you are familiar with the energy rating symbol that is used to rate the efficiency of your electrical items; well now similar ratings have been introduced for windows.

Introduced by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC), the purpose of Window Energy Ratings (WERs) is to make it clear to you which products will offer you the best levels of energy efficiency. Windows can be rated from A to G with A being the most energy efficient.

Only windows rated A, B or C are considered best practice by the Energy Savings Trust.

Bi-folding doors - Live your life...love your home

What better way to transform your home and the way you live than with stunning bi- folding doors. Imagine just sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the panoramic views and fresh open space. The contemporary style of the doors creates a glass facade providing a light airy feel to any room even when they are closed. Once opened using the innovative sliding concertina system the doors completely retract creating unobstructed living space that will totally transform your home.
Bi- folding doors are ideal for use as an internal room divider, giving you the ability to transform two rooms into one; or if used as an external entrance you can bring the outside in making your garden part of your home.

Inverted mouldings

Stylish inverted mouldings are the latest feature to be introduced to our collection and have proved to be extremely popular. Rather than the mouldings being raised from the door they have the appearance of being carved into the door like traditional timber giving a more elegant finish.

A simple choice

At a time when fuel bills are sky high and there is increased pressure on us to lower our carbon foot print, WER’s are becoming vital. Our homes account for over a quarter of all CO2 emissions and by replacing your windows with energy rated windows you can reduce your fuel bills as well saving in CO2 terms the equivalent of a jumbo jet flying from London to New York.

Glass performance
The main factor contributing to energy performance is glass. To achieve the recommended energy ratings a certain specification of glass must be used which offers up to three times more insulation than standard double glazing. The glass is then also filled with argon gas which is denser than air, hence making it harder for heat to escape.
