Thermal insulationThermal insulation EN 10077-1 & EN 10077-2 : T0, T1, T2, T3, T4, T5

When doors are fitted in a wall which separates two rooms that have a different operating temperature (e.g. between living areas and communal areas) or between internal premises and the external environment, they must have thermal insulation capability.

To be considered to have thermal insulation properties, the door must have a U value of ≤ 3.5 W/m²K and guarantee a minimum air tightness (minimum of class L2).

European standards for thermal insulation EN 10077-1 & EN 10077-2

The thermal insulation coefficient value U is calculated according to the following European standards:

  • EN 10077-1: Thermal performance of windows, doors and shutters – Calculation of thermal insulation coefficient – Part 1: General
  • EN 10077-2: Thermal performance of windows, doors and shutters – Calculation of thermal insulation coefficient – Part 2: Numerical method for frames

These standard provide for 7 categories, classified in ascending order of thermal insulation (U):

Class T6 thus obtains the best thermal insulation.
N.B. => Legally defined value in Belgium:  T4 ≤ 2.0 W/m²K!
