Livingwood Passive House windows
We have a large range of window solutions that are Passive house certified, in addition to inward opening entrance doors and outward opening French doors.
With our experience over many Passive House projects we are able to work with the client, architect or Passive House certifier to fine tune PHPP data.
A passive house provides consistent, comfortable temperatures in Winter and Summer, avoiding heat loss and drafts in Winter and avoiding solar gain in Summer. Triple heat protection glazing achieves Ug values of up to 0.5 W/m²K and g values (overall energy transmission factors) of up to 62 %. The window frame is also insulated against drafts with thermal bridges at the glass edge and in the connecting area window to wall. Spacers form thermal bridges.
About Passive House
Passive House is not a brand name, but a building standard and construction concept for energy efficiency, comfort and affordability. Only a select number of European window suppliers have accreditation from the Passivhaus Institute and Dr. Wolfgang Feiss. Certification is achieved by retaining a U – Value of Less than 0.8W/M²K.
Advantages of a Passive house window
- No drafts or pockets of cold air around the window
No temperature differences close to the window
The inside surface temperature of the window does not fall below 17 degrees – even in Winter
Due to good insulation around the window, heating does not need to be confined to the window area, allowing more freedom in design
Extra costs are minimal for passive house construction, but any outlay is quickly recovered due to energy efficiency
Natural heat from the sins radiation can be used more efficiently, reducing annual energy costs
Passive house windows can also be specified on refurbishment projects and older buildings
Serving customers from our base in Suffolk, our reputation now goes even further. Our aluminium sliding door and window ranges are winning clients' hearts from Essex to East Lothian, from Norfolk to Northern Ireland and internationally.

FOR The Height of style
Big, beautiful and clearly ahead of anything else in its field, the spectacular Hi-Finity door range is available right here at Livingwood. With towering heights of up to 3.5 metres, Hi-Finity stands head and shoulders above anything else.
We needed an elegant replacement for doors which form a prominent feature of our bungalow facing south-west overlooking the sea. Draught resistance and triple glazing were key requirements and the Tilt and Slide door from Livingwood Windows ticks all of the boxes. The recommended specialist fitters took great pains to ensure that the installation met with our needs and went smoothly.
