BFRC is now accepting applications for the new ‘A+’band, which applies to windows only. Any BFRC ‘A’ rated product which achieves a rating index of 10 or more can be upgraded to an ‘A+’ for an administration fee of £50 (ex VAT).
Alternatively, manufacturers can also apply for new ‘A+’ licences. All applications must be accompanied by a simulation report and can be made either directly to BFRC or through an independent agency.
These new ‘A+’ licences are available both as simplified energy licences (SELs) and detailed energy licences (DELs). The first batch of ‘A+’ rated windows will all be announced on the same day in mid to late August.
