Partnerships: GGF Companies
The British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) is the UK’s national system for rating Energy Efficient Windows and you will find everything you need to know about the ratings and the label.
In 2005, the Glass and Glazing Federation took over the BFRC and significantly increased its brand awareness and the widespread acceptance of WERs through the large numbers of licences & licence holders. The GGF and BFRC also gained Government acceptance of WERs resulting in it now being a means of; compliance with Building Regulations and the increasing focus on solar gain benefits as opposed to simply u values - which tended to lean towards new buildings with fewer glazed areas.
