The “Component Award 2019 – Windows for the future” winners were announced at the International Passive House Conference in Gaobeidian, China.
Once again, companies in Aotearoa NZ are at the forefront of innovation and punching well above our weight for a small country. The two manufacturers of Passive House certified windows in Aotearoa NZ, Thermadura and SEDA, entered the awards and both won prizes. We are very proud that both companies are members of PHINZ. Congratulations to both SEDA and Thermadura!
The “1st Prize Timber Aluminium in warm, temperate climate” was award to Swartwin Compact that is manufactured by SEDA in Auckland .
The jury praised the standard of aesthetic and innovation in combination with a high degree of thermal protection and the innovative shading solution for this insulation thickness.
The “Special Prize Economy” was awarded to NatureLine90 Passive that is manufactured by ThermaDura in Mosgiel.
The jury outlined the high quality of craftsmanship and practicability of window installation. Compared to a traditional, poor quality New Zealand wooden window, NatureLine has lower investment costs.
