Technical Specifications

We are often asked by many customers if all uPVC windows and doors are the same? In simple, Reflection Home Improvements don't think so! As standard, we are proud to offer...

Please find below a more detail relating to some of the above points;

a_rated_chart2The Benefits of 'A' Rated Glazing

Our windows and sealed units are manufactured to the highest specification with a guaranteed standard.

The British Fenistration Rating Council confirm that Energy Windows are 67% more efficient than conventional double glazed PVC-u windows.




Understand how energy saving windows work

The BFRC carry out tests for Solar Heat Gain, Thermal Losses and Air Losses. Based on these results, all windows are then certified from an 'A' Rating to a 'G' Rating.  All Reflection windows are 'A' rated.

See the diagram below to  see how the window saves energy.

The benefit of having 5 chambers as opposed to the industry standard of 3, is the frame will reduce cold transfer, therefore reducing the chance of condensation, helping to resist outside temperatures and retain internal warmth.

Our frames have a unique glazing packer for the glazed unit to sit on and therefore create a bridge between the sealed unit and any water or dampness and therefore prevent condensation.

Fitted with the unique Tricept 9 Locking System, you can feel safe and secure in your home knowing that every opening double glazed window is secured on all 4 sides.

As with the Windows, the unique Tricept 13 Point Door Locking System secures your door for extra reassuring safety.

Our windows are fitted with unique, high strength IXEF lock keeps.  

This is the very latest material used in crash helmet technology, giving you an extraordinary high level of security, together with leading edge style.  

The keeps are in a clean, unobtrusive white or brown, giving a perfect colour match to your windows and enhancing the look of your opened windows.  

An additional benefit in coastal areas is that there is no corrosion as IXEF is a composite material.

barrelsWhat is Lock Snapping

Lock snapping is the quickest way to gain entry to a locked uPVC door. The cylinder is literally snapped by applying torque to the cylinder. This is an inherent weakness in many uPVC door locking cylinders. Be assured Reflections always use anti-snapping barrels.
