Default window data

The 88 "default" windows and corresponding performance data were developed by the Australian Fenestration Rating Council (AFRC) for use in NatHERS accredited software. The windows are intended to provide representative performance values over a wide range of currently available frame and glass combinations. Performance values of individual frame and glass combinations from the market may differ from these "default" windows.
