Achieving the optimum window solution depends on a combination of factors:

• The window’s insulating properties
• The window’s ability to make use of free solar heat
• The window’s orientation in relation to the sun
• Sun screening and shading
• The ratio of glass to frame 
• Installation methods and thermal bridges 
• The number of windows and total window area
• Air tightness

Rationel Windows UK Ltd. can offer both products and guidance on how to achieve the best energy solution for you and your home. We are the leading supplier of windows and doors for Passive House construction and low-energy buildings in Scandinavia and have gained considerable experience in optimizing the energy efficiency of windows and doors. In low-energy buildings the choice of windows is very important, but to meet Passive House status, the relationship between building design and energy performance is absolutely crucial.

We provide expert help to ensure that the right choice is made, giving you the best performance in terms of thermal insulation, light transmittance, use of passive solar heat gain, durability and aesthetics.
