BFRC Noise Reduction Ratings for windows & doors

Energy Ratings

Make some noise about acoustic performance

Windows and doors can play a vital role in reducing the level of noise entering a home, particularly for dwellings close to roads, railways or impacted by air traffic noise. With homes increasingly becoming peaceful retreats from a hectic outside world, making them quieter, more pleasant places to be can also improve wellbeing.

BFRC Noise Reduction Ratings let window & door system houses and manufacturers prove the acoustic performance of window and door products with the highly recognised BFRC ‘rainbow’ rating label. These easy to understand ratings empower installers and homeowners to compare products based on their noise reduction performance rather than simply on price.
