All Independent Network members use top quality components, combined with efficient production methods to create energy efficient doors, windows and conservatories that perform to the very highest standards. Saving you money on your energy bills and helping to save the world’s valuable energy resources.
VEKA, in conjunction with one of Independent Network's founder members, created the UK’s first ever window to gain the prestigious BFRC ‘A’ rating.
The BFRC (British Fenestration Ratings Council) rating system is designed to determine a window’s thermal efficiency. It is displayed on a colour-coded traffic-light style label with a scale from ‘A’ (the most efficient) – to ‘G’. This means that you can make a quick yet informed decision when choosing new windows, doors or energy efficient conservatories.
With carbon emissions and other environmental issues high on the global agenda, we’re all looking for ways to make our homes more energy efficient. Combined factors, such as solar gain, result in the fact that the ‘A’ rated window is energy-positive, meaning it can absorb more energy into the house than it lets out.
To see how much money you could save on your energy bills and to find out how significantly you could reduce your carbon footprint, use the ‘Carbon Calculator’ on www.ggf.org.uk.
The Carbon Calculator can even tell you how much more you could save by installing windows with an ‘A’ rating compared to the ‘B’ to ‘G’ rated products.
