Innotech Launches Four New Passive House Certified Components
Innotech is excited to celebrate two decades of manufacturing excellence with the launch of four new Passive House certified components. The new Defender 88PH+ System is the next generation of high-performance windows and doors and includes fixed windows, an operable window and a terrace door that are all certified by the Passive House Institute – a distinguished recognition by the world’s most rigorous energy-based building standard.
In addition to PHI certification, the new products are also certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) and tested to comply with the North American Fenestration Standard/Specification (NAFS). The result is a comprehensively engineered, tested and certified high-performance fenestration system with outstanding thermal insulation, superior air, water and sound resistance, and proven durability specifically designed for North American building projects.
First Cold Climate Certified Window Manufactured in North America
The Defender 88PH+ System includes the first cold climate PHI certified window manufactured in North America – a significant achievement for the North American fenestration industry and long-awaited performance milestone for the North American Passive House building industry. The cold climate certified Defender 88PH+ XI has a low Uw value of 0.60 W/m2K and supports the growth of Passive House buildings in colder climates in Canada and the United States.
Cool Temperate Windows and Terrace Doors
The Defender 88PH+ System also includes three cool temperate PHI certified products with a Uw range of 0.74 to 0.80 W/m2K, including a terrace door that can be designed as a single door, double door, inswing, outswing or Tilt + Turn and with or without sidelites. Defender 88PH+ System also includes a significant library of Flixo models of window and door options, such as couplers, mullions and sills, to effectively support Passive House Designers. All products within the Defender 88PH+ System can be combined to create high-performance window and door assemblies.
Reliable Strength and Stability for Windows and Doors with Colour Finishes
The Defender 88PH+ System is an advanced fenestration system that is engineered to provide strength and stability. Innovative reinforcements improve structural performance and significantly reduce thermal conductivity. This allows the Defender 88PH+ System to be reliably designed in extra-large sizes and a range of durable colour finish options.
The Defender 88PH+ System joins an already impressive product line-up that includes the Defender 76TS System, a Passive House suitable component. The range of systems offers building professionals the flexibility to choose the appropriate windows and doors to meet the performance requirements for their projects.
