Window & Door MS has achieved the British Federation Ratings Council (BFRC) Window Energy Ratings (WER) A to D on all its internally beaded PVCu casement windows.
We underwent a stringent testing process to ensure the ratings are applicable on the Eclipse, Esthetique, Halo, Rustique and Rehau window systems. This gives the consumer a choice of both traditional chamfered and decorative sculptured profiles when choosing energy rated windows.
Increased environmental awareness from the consumer means people are exercising greater greener consideration in their buying choices – and are seeking ways to make their lives more environmentally friendly.
Home improvements are no exception, and a combination of increasing legislative pressure and consumer pull in favour of WER windows.
Once again we are ahead of the game and have invested time and resources in achieving this rating.
