Passive House Window Suppliers in Ireland Update

Posted on October 5, 2011. Filed under: Architecture, Building Your Home, Energy Efficiency, Extending or Renovating Your Home, Passive House (PassivHaus) | Tags: |


Back in November of last year we  posted the below information on Passive House Window Suppliers in Ireland. Since then there has been great progress in Ireland on this front. So we have updated this post with the latest info. Anybody who has a supplier to add, please do let us know. 

Very often we get asked about Passive House Window suppliers in Ireland. Over the years when we have been compiling tenders for Passive Houses we have always found it restricting in finding Passive House Window suppliers in Ireland. So as we came across a new company we added them to our database. Below is the database we have developed to date. We hope this list will grow over the next few years.

We would obviously wish to advise that the below list is merely a list of window suppliers. And is in no way a recommendation or an endorsement of any company listed. OLS Architects have not worked with each and every company listed below and therefore can not comment on their performance. Make sure you do your own research into each company you plan to add to your tender list.

As you may know the term Passive House is not protected and therefore Passive House Windows is also not protected. While the below list of suppliers provide Passive House Windows to passive standard, they are all not Passivhaus Institut certified. Check out the Certified Passive Window information on the Passivhaus Institut website to confirm which windows are certified: http://www.passiv.de/index.html 

We would like to advise people to check the window certs and the frame information you receive. We ourselves have had an experience where we were given an amended cert and incorrect frame profiles. So make sure you check all the info you are given. Check it against the certs on the web link above. Good Luck!!

We will be posting a more detailed guide to Passive House Windows soon – so stay tuned! In the meantime, we hope this database is helpful and gets you started.
