Passive House As A Standard And A Way Of Life

We are passionate about energy efficiency and Passive House standards. Our core values as a company is to live what we believe, which takes on many forms for us as a company. An obvious one is providing high-performance windows and doors that meet and exceed Passive House (PH) standards. You can check out our PH Aluminum Series options here and here and our Wood-Aluminum options here and here. We believe in leading the industry by living and manufacturing modern energy-efficient windows that last for decades, are beautiful and protect the environment. This belief runs so deep for us as a company that our President has begun the process of building his own Passive Home.

It’s clear that the Elk Ridge Passive Home design bucks the norm of few windows typically seen in Passive House homes. The A7 Aluminum Window Series makes this design possible with R-value 7 (U-value 0.14), along with strategic building orientation and overhangs.
