NEW cost-effective Passivhaus-certified outward-opening timber window range

Green Building Store is launching its Passivhaus certified ULTRA timber window range today (Tuesday 15 October 2013) at the UK Passivhaus Conference. The new insulated frame version of the ULTRA range offers whole window U values of 0.68 W/m2K and has just received certification as a Certified Component from the Passivhaus Institut.

The ULTRA range has been developed by Green Building Store in response to specifier demand, and is designed to help fill a gap in the UK Passivhaus and low energy market. The ULTRA’s outward opening style is available in a suite of insulated or solid frame versions to give a very high level of design flexibility. In the timber window market, outward opening windows are more familiar to the British public (and building professionals), but have been hard to source for Passivhaus projects in the UK.

Green Building Store is confident that pricing levels and choice of solid or insulated frame options for the ULTRA range will also make it more appealing to the mainstream, including higher performance social housing

Chris Herring, Director of Green Building Store, said:

“We are delighted to have received Passivhaus certification for the new insulated version of the ULTRA timber window. Now the ULTRA range will be able to give designers working on Passivhaus and low energy projects greater design flexibility. It will also offer a cost effective option for affordable & social housing projects wanting to go down the Passivhaus route. We hope that the ULTRA range will help Passivhaus enter the mainstream in the UK.”
