 German term or phrase: Uf-Wert Durch die ausgefeilte Konstruktion von Kammern und Dichtungen, wie sie in unseren Profilsystemen xxx mit einem Uf-Wert von 1,3 W/m²k oder der passivhaustauglichen Komponente yyy mit 0,71 W/m²k realisiert wurde, gelingt es, Wärme im Gebäudeinneren zu halten, ohne die notwendige Atmung der Gebäudehülle zu beeinträchtigen. Der Uf-Wert bezeichnet die Energieverluste über den Fensterrahmen (im Gegensatz zu Verlusten über die Verglasung oder das gesamte Fenster). Wie heißt das im Englischen? Vielen Dank im Voraus.
