WERS Ratings

The Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) is accredited by the AFRC - which means that WERS ratings are compliant with the NCC. Reports are prescribed both the window performance for total window U Value (Uw) and total window Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGCw).

U-value

U-value measures how well a product prevents heat from escaping. It is a measure of the rate of non-solar heat loss or gain through a material or assembly. U-value ratings generally fall between 2.0-10.0 W/m2.K for Australian products.

The lower the U-value, the greater a window's resistance to heat and cold flow and the better its insulating value.
