The BFRC Scheme is the UK’s national system for rating the energy efficiency of windows and is recognised within the Building Regulations as a method to show compliance for your replacement windows installation.

Window Energy Ratings use a consumer-friendly traffic-light style A-E ratings guide similar to that used on ‘white’ goods (such as fridges, freezers, washing machines etc…). This ratings label can be used by you to make more informed choices about the energy efficiency of the windows you are looking to purchase.


The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking.

The technical requirements that must be met are largely the same as they were for the CE marking.

The UK Conformity Assessed mark is a mandatory mark on a product to indicate that it conforms to UK legislation. It represents the manufacturer's claim that the requirements of all relevant directives have been satisfied. Many products are covered by these directives and for some, such as external pedestrian doorsets with emergency exit/panic devices, it is a legal requirement to mark the product accordingly. UKCA marking on a product, its packaging or accompanying information indicates that the minimum levels of quality and health and safety have been met.

Secured by Design

Garrard Windows Ltd is a member of Secured by Design, the flagship UK police initiative to help ‘design out’ crime through the use of high-quality, innovative products and processes.

In order to achieve Secured by Design status, our VEVO 70mm PVCu Casement Window System had to adhere to rigorous test standards required by the police.

Secured by Design is the only way for products to achieve police recognition in the UK. The principles of Secured by Design have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime.

Research has demonstrated that newly built developments built to Secured by Design standards are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and that refurbished developments employing Secured by Design principles are up to 63% less likely to experience crime.

The Secured by Design brand is owned and operated by Police Crime Prevention Initiatives on behalf of the UK police services.
