The "Passiv" cladding system only comes in the base Thermal Classic style, and actually requires modifying the wood profile to add a layer of insulative material to the outside of the frame and sash profiles. With this Passiv cladding system, it is possible to utilize a quad-pane glazing unit to put thermal performance over the top! The Passive cladding system is certified by the Passiv Haus Institut of Germany.
The Ultimat-Wood 95 is the best wood Tilt&Turn window profile system in our standard offering. It is a system with a depth approaching 100mm, making it wide enough to handle the thickest of triple-pane glazing units that allows it to greatly exceed most passive house implementations--it even comes optionally with quad-pane glazing! It comes only in the aluminum cladded Thermal Classic style with various options for small modification of the profile such as shorter profile height and sill cutouts. Being so deep, it can handle up to a 56mm-wide triple-pane glazing unit. Its (3+1)-layer cross-grain wood construction ensures rigidity and constancy of shape, while providing an astounding Uf-value of 0.137, with pine, spruce, or larch wood varieties. This means that that it has one of the best thermal performance characteristics for products in its class. The window system is suited for those who have to have the best in a traditional wood clad window system.
