Reynaers Aluminium UK has signed up to the BFRC Energy Rating Scheme.
John McComb, technical services director at the systems house, said that thermal efficiency is now at the forefront of its design criteria. He explained: “Since 2002, thermal performance has become an industry driver, particularly in relation to new ideas, design, concept and overcoming new challenges,” he said
“The BFRC Energy Rating Scheme is the premium UK authority for thermal efficiency rating. As well as developing new systems and products that comply, and in some cases, exceed the thermal requirements, it’s also important that we continue to educate the market, Reynaers staff, and our customers about thermal performance, and partnering with the BFRC enables us to do this.
Lis Clarke, operations director of FENSA & BFRC, added: “Historically aluminium had a reputation for not having the highest levels of thermal efficiency. However, Reynaers, through the combination of new technologies and innovative design successfully delivers windows and doors with all the aesthetic benefits of aluminium and zero compromise when it comes to thermal efficiency. By partnering with the BFRC, the company can further prove its product performance in this regard and add another string to its bow when marketing Reynaers’ sustainable building solutions to the market.”
