Passive Window Futura, its construction

The inside wood profile has a clean slim look.

Built with solid slow growth Pine, FUTURA passive house windows are carefully carved to enhance your interior design.

Today most of modern style architecture asks for custom made windows with a rectangle wood profile.

Built in our state of the art modern factory this window is a piece of art!

This elegant contemporary custom made Passive Windows USA is flush on the inside and integrates strong Bieber’s concealed hinge tilt and turn technology with 3D adjustment.

Aluminum clad Windows – Passive Windows USA
Bieber windows are made with a strong and thick aluminum clad profile.

Bieber extrusions are powder-coated under controlled environment.

FUTURA windows can be installed in a way to make a frameless installation:

Almost uniquely, the glass is visible from outside!

Bieber is involved in each step of your project and can realize any specific aluminum shapes.

Please contact us today for personalized aluminum bent profiles or aluminum extensions.

Engineered Wood – Passive Windows USA

Bieber’s FUTURA window series is made with 3 ply laminated engineered solid wood.

Unlike other window manufacturers, Bieber uses certified wood sections sustainably harvested.

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) solid wood sections are available and stand for the most eco-friendly product available in the window and door industry.

FUTURA windows from Bieber are available in Pine.

Pinus Sylvestris is generally denominated Scandinavian Pine or Siberian pine.

This wood is largely used for European windows due to its stability and wood grain characteristics.

“Not uniform in appearance and color”: this should be the definition of a beautiful and real solid wood.

Pinus Sylvestris is very stable overtime and can be easily painted or stained.

Please remember that Bieber offers a large choice of factory stain or paint.

Superior Glass System – Passive Windows USA

FUTURA is only made with triple pane glass.

The triple pane glasses are low E coated and filled with Argon.

Accordingly with your facade orientation, at Bieber we make sure that your overall performances are maximized.

We understand that passive house designs require variable Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)This is a MUST to achieve the best thermal performances.

Ug values and SHGC values will vary accordingly with the pane layer characteristics.

Finishing option – Passive Windows USA

Bieber is specialized in windows and doors factory stain or paint.

Our float coat conveyor system allows us to pre-finish the windows, doors and lift and slide even behind the hardware, glass and aluminum clad.

Window frames are entirely sealed!

This is unique on the market; all wooden parts are covered with Bieber low VOC finish.

passive windows hardware

Hardware Tilt and turn is the best choice when it comes to passive house design.

The hardware fits your design but also fits the exigent passive house requirements for airtightness.

Most of the locally made windows do not have Bieber’s European multi point locking mechanism.
Why Bieber’s European hardware fits the passive house design:

Multi-point locking system:

It ensures a constant pressure between the sash and frame.

Turning the handle activates a cremone mechanism with multiple locking points.

These adjustable pins keep the pressure very strong and create a unique airtightness.

European tilt and turn windows are the most used windows in passive house designs for this specific reason.

FUTURA windows and doors are manufactured with a double weather-stripping around the sash.

Imagine:  when you turn the handle, the amount of pressure that the cremone mechanism creates on the weather-stripping!

Futura’s Window main features :

– Thin frame for more glazing area.

– Tilt and Turn for extreme ventilation.

– Concealed hinges.

– Flush sash and frame.

– Adaptable for large units

Passive House Concept

Passive Window and Passive House in USA

A passive house is a building in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained without the need for a conventional heating system such as boiler or geo-thermal heat pump. A small back-up heat source is all that is needed in very cold weather.

The annual heating requirement in a passive house must be less than 15 kilowatt hours per square meter of living space per year (expressed as kWh/(m²a)). Building in accordance with the current regulations in Ireland would achieve an equivalent value (at best) of six times the passive house standard (100 kWh/(m²a). Passive houses are thus extremely efficient in terms of energy consumption while at the same time providing very high levels of comfort.

PHPP package – Passive Windows USA

Technical thermal performances are part of the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) so the calculation can be easily done. 

This passive house FUTURA window series is made to order …custom size, glazing options, finishes, hardware…etc.

FUTURA aluminum-clad windows and doors have a clean square wood profile on the inside and is virtually frameless on the exterior.

 

FUTURA from Bieber have one of the best thermal performances on the market 

Uw up to 0.118 Btu/hr-sq ft-°F

SHGC (solar heat gain coefficient) up to 0.63

 

The following are the basic features that distinguish passive house construction (source – PassiveHouse Institute, Germany):

Compact form and good insulation:

– All components of the exterior shell of the house are insulated to achieve a U-factor that does not exceed 0.15 W/(m²K).

Southern orientation and shade considerations:

– Passive use of solar energy is a significant factor in passive house design.

Energy-efficient window glazing and frames:

– Windows (glazing and frames, combined) should have U-factors not exceeding 0.80 W/(m²K).

Building envelope air-tightness:

– Air leakage through unsealed joints must be less than 0.6 times the house volume per hour.

Passive preheating of fresh air:

– Fresh air may be brought into the house through underground ducts that exchange heat with the soil. This preheats fresh air to a temperature above 5°C (41°F), even on cold winter days. Highly efficient heat recovery from exhaust air using an air-to-air heat exchanger: Most of the perceptible heat in the exhaust air is transferred to the incoming fresh air (heat recovery rate over 80%).

Hot water supply using regenerative energy sources:

– Solar panels or heat pumps provide energy for hot water. Energy-saving household appliances: Low energy refrigerators, stoves, freezers, lamps, washers, dryers, etc. are indispensable in a passive house.

Passive Windows Energy

A passive house is a building in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained without active heating and cooling systems.

The house heats and cools itself, hence “passive”. Windows for a passive energy house must be 0.8 W/m² or better.BIEBER windows can achieve a U-Value of 0.74 W/m². The innovation that is synonymous with European construction is now available.
