Certass Ltd, a UKAS approved Certification Body which operates a Window Energy Rating Scheme through Thermal Rating Register (TRR) has now launched a new Window Energy Rating (WER) Label. This new label is unique to the TRR scheme adding important consumer information as well as detailing the correct window specifications.
Our new label introduces 2 new WER bandings A+ at plus 5 points and A* at plus 10 points. In addition our new label introduces an innovative new rating graphic for both Light Transmittance and Heat Retention, presented in a consumer friendly manner. The TRR scheme labels are unlimited to all new TRR members and there are no charges to our existing TRR members for updating to the new A+ and A* rating. Labels can be created using either full simulation reports or using the TRR calculator. The TRR calculator has all major glass types and spacer bars included with a large number of system company profiles.
