British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC)

BFRC (The British Fenestration Rating Council) is responsible for Window and Door Energy Ratings in the UK. It rates the energy efficiency of window and door products from 'A' (the most energy efficient) to 'C' for windows and from 'A' to 'G' for doors. It uses the well-known rainbow label, similar to that found on fridges, freezers and washing machines.

The BFRC energy rating system allows homeowners to easily compare and contrast the energy efficiency of similar window and door products. BFRC does this work with the support of all window and door industry trade associations and a broad range of other bodies, including research organisations, professional institutes and the Energy Saving Trust, backed by the Government.
