Building Regulation Compliance & Energy Ratings (WER / DSER)
Compliance with current Building Regulations is a vital part of every installation and can sometimes be complex. Using REAL Aluminium, meeting the requirements of Part L of current UK Building Regulations, is easy as the entire range is compliant using energy ratings for renovations to existing properties when installed with a double-glazed unit with a U Value of 1.2 W/m2K and a solar gain of 0.71 or better that is manufactured using an Edgetech Super Spacer Bar or equivalent.
All REAL Casement Windows achieve an ‘A’-rating if the aforementioned glass unit is upgraded to low-iron glass. The thermal efficiency of the REAL Aluminium range can be enhanced further by using higher performance double-glazed or triple-glazed units.
All REAL Aluminium products when used in conjunction with the correct glass specifications,
satisfy current Building Regulations Part L for refurbishment and new-build applications.
The addition of low-iron glass will not improve U Values but will improve WER/DSER rating due
to solar gain.
The addition of triple glazing will improve U Values but due to reduced solar gain has limited
effect on WER/DSER ratings.
