When you choose to partner with Das Fenster, you deal with experts in windows and doors, not just a sales team. Architect Steffen Welsch and joiner Dirk Leuschner have been importing Das Fenster energy rated windows as completed units into Australia from Germany for more than five years. Steffen has designed houses with all types of windows and has a thorough understanding of design considerations, while Dirk began his joinery career building these windows.
With Das Fenster, you get advanced window designs that have constantly been improved over the last 50 years. Due to more demanding colder climates, European window design has always pushed the boundaries to improve window performance.
When compared to single glazed windows, Das Fenster windows can add 1-2 stars to the energy rating of your house, and when compared to standard double glazed aluminium windows, they can add 0.5 – 1 star to the energy rating.
As these windows are built in volume in Germany, they are not as expensive as you might expect. You pay a bit more, but also get quite a bit more regarding minimising air infiltration, improved performance, and durable construction. Performing better than similar Australian windows, they shut like a well-built car door!
