Calculator for Windows and Doors
u-value of wooden windows and doors
Our u-value calculator is designed to work out the u-value of various designs of wood / timber windows and doors. It can be a single paned window/door, or one with a number of panes of glass.
Whole Window U Values
Unlike other calculators we do not just supply a u-value taken from the centre point of the glass or the centre of a window panel. This is a whole window u-value calculator that works out the combined u value of the glazing, the frame and the spacer.
No restriction on manufacturer
Our calculator does not restrict you to using products from any one manufacturer. We can calculate the u value of single, double or triple glazed windows built with softwood, hardwood or accoya frames.
We can calculate the overall u-value here other types of frame are used if you can provide the u-value of that frame.
We can make adjustments for Window and Doors with or without Spacers and any Thermal bridges used in the installation.
Conforms to European Standard
Our u value calculator is a whole window calculator designed to calculate an accurate u-value of windows and doors. This calculated value conforms to European Standard EN ISO 10077. This standard applies in Scotland, England and Europe.
Other Frame types
Our calculator is primarily intended for use with wooden windows and doors. These can be made from hardwood, softwood or accoya, of any size with double or triple glazing. If you can provide us with the u value of any other type of frame you are using we can provide a u value for that too. Our uvalue calculator is not restricted to products manufactured by one company.
