The 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.
5 Chambered UPVC Profile
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.
High-Security UPVC Windows with 9 locking points
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.

The Unique Benefit of IXEF in corrosive environments
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 extraordinarily 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.
To complement the design and security elements of our windows, all handles have the following features…
- Locks automatically on closing
- Simple push-button release
- Additional key locking as standard
- Modern stylish design
- Concealed screw fixing
- Available in White, Black, Gold and Chrome
What 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.
