ARRA Funded Project Yields New Window Technology!

Posted by Webmaster on 18. January 2012 13:08

if you've been browsing through the articles on Energy.gov, you may have noticed that TRACO, a division of Kawneer and window manufacturer since the early 1940s, recently partnered with the DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy to utilize funds from the Recovery Act to develop some new window technology. The OptiQ™ Ultra Thermal Windows can reduce energy loss by up to 40 percent compared to the efficient, commercially available double-pane low-emissivity windows that are already on the market!
What makes these new energy efficient windows so innovative? They include a thermally optimized frame design, enhanced frame cavities, wider thermal breaks, and high performance glazing that allows an aluminum framed window to achieve more energy savings than ever before, all while maintaining its structural integrity. Not too bad! Read more of the article on energy.gov right now to learn about this exciting news for energy efficient window technology.

    I'm glad to see this research is going on and definitely some interesting developments but I'm interested in how these new windows compare to other ones coming to the market.

    You've published the interview with Stephen Selkowitz where he talks about some of the other windows being developed including Electrochromic Smart Windows and surely some of these new developments should be the bench mark rather than pre-existing double pane windows.
