The Effektiv 73 was chosen to be our "poor-man's passive" uPVC window system with a relatively narrow depth that can still handle a wide enough glazing unit to make most applications near passive house grade. It comes in two exterior shapes (Basic and Rounded Frame-In-Frame), a lower-frame height option for fixed units and smaller-sized operable units, and it can handle up to a 44mm-wide triple-pane glazing unit.  Its 5-chambered construction and Uf-value of 0.229 means that means that it has good thermal performance characteristics. The window system is mainly designed for high performance, near passive houses and select multi-family buildings that want to distinguish themselves from the others.
