» WINDOW, THERM and OPTICS
WINDOW, THERM and OPTICS
are the current generation of energy simulation software from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA.
Together, they are the cornerstone of the US National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC)
and the Australian Fenestration Rating Council (AFRC).
AFRC ratings for whole windows (combined performance of glazing and frame) are required by the
National Construction Code / Building Code of Australia, Volume One (Section J2), Volume Two (Section 3.12.2) and by the BCA Glazing Calculator.
From 2012, we will provide AFRC-compliant training in the use of these approved tools, for the certification of windows, glazed doors and some skylight types. NFRC technical procedures are used for
determining U-factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, Visible Transmittance and Condensation Resistance of windows, glazed doors and skylights.
Skylight ratings will be issued in accordance with the new WERS for Skylights program.
This training is provided through Peter Lyons & Associates -- visit the website for contact and booking information.
