The slim and well-insulated construction makes it possible to let in more solar heat during winter than it lets out, resulting in a much lower heating bill and significant CO2 savings.
Rationel FORMAPLUS® is available in many different opening functions and designs and is easy to mount and join, making it suitable for complex window solutions, patios, conservatories, bays, etc. The product range is available in a wide range of RAL colours and selection of energy efficient panes, depending on the desired function of the windows.

The timber used in the manufacture is supplied from FSC-certified North European coniferous trees from selected sawmills with sustainable forest management. The proportion of heartwood is at least 60% for exterior rebates and surfaces. In general, knots and small cracks are cut off and the wood finger-jointed. However, minor knots will be permitted. All softwood sections are laminated and their edges rounded.
The surface treatment uses the System 2 Eco, which involves:
