BFRC LAUNCHES IGU MANUFACTURERS WER LICENCE SCHEME


1st January 2012 sees the launch of the latest window energy-rating (WER) scheme from BFRC – specially designed for the UK’s insulated glass unit (IGU) manufacturers. This new scheme is a Simplified Energy Licence (SEL) that covers multiple product combinations and gives IGU manufacturers’ flexibility.


The IGU SEL combines the benefits of a simpler, more flexible WER system with the maintenance of control and audit by BFRC. It allows the wide range of IGUs from one manufacturer to be covered by the BFRC A to C labelling right through the manufacturing and installing process.


REGISTRATION The scope of each IGU licence will


be defined by the WER Calculator or by simulation reports. Any frame fabricator being supplied by a registered IGU manufacturer also has to be registered on the scheme so BFRC can subject the parties to appropriate audit and compliance procedures.


The IGU manufacturers will create the scope


of their own licence. This will be achieved by establishing a matrix defined by the system frame type and the WER banding. This allows varying specifications of IGU to be coupled with any number of frame variations within a given profile suit and banding from a specific


System House. It will not allow the mixing of profile suits from different System Houses.


“This latest scheme in the family of BFRC


licence products will extend usage of BFRC labelling to more and more window products,” comments BFRC CEO Graham Hinett. “It gives IGU manufacturers the flexibility and control they need but at the same time allows us to maintain quality control which is vital for consumer confidence.”
