NGS COMPARE: PRODUCTS GROUP COMPARISON

L10 Windows

NGS COMPARE establishes for each product group:

NGS COMPARE places the following for Windows:

NGS COMPARE collects data on as many products as can be found easily; applies any calculations necessary to determine comparable data. 

NGS COMPARE then calculates averages in each KPI, EPI and SPI to determine average or normal performance and determines which are above and below the average performance.  

NGS COMPARE then compares individual products to determine where and how they are better or worse than the average or normal.

NGS COMPARE encourage manufacturers to bring their latest product data to improve the collection.

L10 External Wall Windows and Doors of the same format

On this occasion NGS COMPARED:

GreenSpecPASS took manufacturer or reviewer declared data

Average or Normal Product or Performance:

On this occasion the averages determined were:

Average material:

PVC window frame

Double glazed window,

BFRC Certificate Average B-C rated

Not BSI Kitemarked (

Not BBA Certified (

Not Secured by Design (>100 Secured by Design)

Not Passivhaus accredited (10 Passivhaus accredited)

Not FSC certified timber (

Not WWA member (

Not BWF TWA scheme

Conclusions:

BFRC certification is extensive but not comprehensive

Construction Products Directive and Regulations and Building Regulations require Proper materials

Government funded projects Code for Sustainable Homes will require Secured by Design

PVC window sector has standards for window sections and window performance, but little else

WWA & TWA schemes offer comprehensive schemes with broad range of issue,
