Kolbe Products for Passive House (PHIUS)
Kolbe products are continually designed to meet or exceed today's stricter building codes and standards for energy efficiency. Now, Kolbe is proud to offer a wide range of VistaLuxe® Collection and Ultra Series windows and doors that have been verified by the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS). Our range of certified products means that American-made windows and doors for an entire passive house project are available from one manufacturer.
NOTE: Passive House performance criteria are dependent upon a number of factors, including LoE coatings, lite divisions, and elevation placement.
The PHIUS Certified Data for Windows program reviews manufacturer-supplied specifications for window products and recommends products that are suitable for passive house by climate zone. Download a list of Kolbe products that have been PHIUS verified.
