Registered with the ‘BRFC’ which is an energy rating system for achieving an ‘A’ rating on our glazed windows (the same system for rating household appliances). Frames Direct supply windows that are energy efficient and eco friendly
Low emissivity glass, the type of gas fill and the size of the cavity all impact on performance. The type of spacer bars and the edge sealants all make a difference.
Within the outer frame and sash, insulating foam or thermal barrier technologies can be used.
Glazing widths include 28mm and 36mm for the slim line Elite 63, and 28mm, 40mm and 44mm for Elite70. On Liniar 28mm, 36mm and 40mm.
An a-G energy rating has been developed for windows by the BFRC. This is the same as the rating systems used for household appliances – such as fridges and light bulbs. It clearly shows the products that can save customers money and assist in the reduction of Co2 emissions.
The lifetime cost of heat lost through a window is greater than the purchase cost.
The cost of a window is not just the purchase cost – it is also the cost of operating the window. The cost of heat loss through a window easily exceeds the cost of the window over the typical lifetime of a window.
Window heat losses can account for over 30% of total heat lost from a house. This can be significantly reduced using energy efficient windows.
Windows have traditionally been a large source of energy loss from houses but this can be nearly halved by the use of the new energy efficient technologies.
Our windows and doors provide an outstanding barrier against heat and noise loss – even in the most extreme weather conditions.
Windows and door made from PVC-U negates the use of timber, protecting the planets trees.
We recycle our own waste and generate new products whilst still retaining the highest standards in quality of material.
Our windows and doors do not require painting and therefore don’t consume additional harmful materials or generate associated waste.
Our entire manufacturing process – from production to installation – is confined
to the UK and Ireland thereby minimising transportation and fuel consumption from wider exportation.
