(rated as ‘A’ under the new criteria for passive house windows) In spite of the excellent thermal properties, smartwin with its sophisticated design can be manufactured at an affordable price by licensed partners of pro Passivhausfenster GmbH, which developed the smartwin window. Currently there are six small window manufacturing partners with the goal of spreading affordable, high quality and highly efficient passive house windows. They are still looking for partners.”
