WINSMART - Sets New Standards for Windows!
WINSMART - Sets New Standards for Windows!

Did you know that Windows are the weakest point of the building's facade and that 60 % of a building's heat loss is happening through the windows?

The WINSMART window will be a smart, lightweight, cost-effective and energy efficient window based on novel material combinations! The WINSMART project will:

  • Reduce the U-value from 0.8 to 0.3
  • Reduce the weight of the window by 50%
  • Reduce the window's overall energy consumption (embodied energy) during the manufacturing process and disposal/recycling by 50 %
  • Use new materials and new technology to improve the construction of the window frame and framework, the vacuum window and the glass coating
  • Develop smart technologies to control the solar radiation through the window


This project has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° 314407.
