Window terminology

What is the U value?

The U value, that is the thermal insulation measure, plays an increasingly important role. The U value (heat transfer coefficient) describes how much thermal energy is transported through a building component with the size of 1 square metre.

To put it in simple terms:

The lower the U value, the better the insulation qualities of the window.

Ug = thermal insulation value of the glazing

Uf = thermal insulation value of the window frame

Uw = total thermal insulation value of the window

Windows made by our aluplast partners meet or exceed current and future energy efficiency guidelines as the German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV). You will never have to worry about saving energy!
