WHAT ARE OUR VALUES? Sustainability HOW ENERGY EFFICIENCY BECOMES CLIMATE PROTECTION

Sustainability

Technology for energy savings in windows has progressed faster over the past few years than for almost any other component of the building shell. Weru and Unilux played a major role in this. Our windows achieve thermal insulation values that are approaching that of solid masonry. They easily satisfy the stringent requirements of the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV). However, it's not only our products that help us make a valuable contribution to climate protection. We are also committed to sustainability and responsibility towards the environment in our plants:
