Unifold doors from Unique secure Part L compliant BFRC ratings

Unique Window Systems

Unique Window Systems, the rapidly growing fabricator of PVC-U and aluminium windows, doors, and curtain walling, has gained third party verification of the energy efficiency of one of its most popular ranges.

Following testing accredited by the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC), Unique’s Unifold brand of aluminium bifold doors has been certified as offering a door energy rating of C in accordance with Approved Document L.

Sunil Patel, joint managing director at Unique Window Systems, explained: “Our success in securing BFRC certification for the Unifold range directly reflects our commitment to continuous improvement.”

“As a business, we continually look at how we can enhance and extend our range to ensure we offer our customers product solutions that embrace changes in market conditions, consumer demands and relevant legislation. This includes the need for ever increasing levels of thermal performance.”

The certification awarded to the Unifold range by the BFRC is significant. It demonstrates that the doors meet the energy efficiency requirements of the updated Part L of the Building Regulations for both new build properties (U-value of 1.6) and for replacement fenestration products installed on existing dwellings (Energy rating Class C).

The new BFRC ratings add to an already impressive list of benefits offered by the Unifold range. This includes exceptional versatility. Door panels can be stacked inside or outside of a room as well as to the left, right or split to stack on both sides. Door sets can also be manufactured to replace entire walls.

In addition, Unifold doors, which benefit from a sleek, modern look, are available in a variety of colours and finishes. They are also supplied with high security hinges and locks as standard, which have been tested to PAS24, in accordance with Approved Document Q.

Sunil Patel added: “Our ability to effectively enhance the Unifold range so that it could secure its recent BFRC ratings is a testament to our product development and technical expertise at Unique.

“We’ll be making further additions and refinements across our product portfolio imminently as we work to ensure our installer partners are perfectly placed to meet pending challenges and opportunities.

“This includes the imminent roll out of the Future Homes and Buildings Standard in 2025.”
