Skaala’s low energy window best in test
The window was the only one given five stars. Skaala is the only window manufacturer, whose windows live up to the promised thermal insulation performance.
Skaala won the comparative test of low energy windows conducted by the Finnish builders’ magazine TM Rakennusmaailma. The Skaala low energy window was the only window given five stars. Twelve different manufacturers of low energy windows participated in the comparative test. All of the windows were proclaimed to have a U-value of 1.0 W/m²K or less. The manufacturers had not received any prior notice that the test would be conducted.
The performance of the windows was tested by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The qualities examined were thermal transmittance, air permeability, watertightness, soundproofing and resistance to wind load. The windows were also evaluated based on sense perception. The Skaala low energy window stood out thanks to its excellent thermal insulation, watertightness and soundproofing as well as its low air permeability. Especially regarding thermal insulation and soundproofing, Skaala was well ahead of everyone else. Skaala was the only manufacturer, whose windows lived up to the promised thermal insulation performance.

The latest test result strengthens Skaala's leading role as a low energy window manufacturer. Skaala succeeded also in the previous test conducted by the same magazine in 2006. As a result of that test Skaala's window placed as second. Also then the thermal insulation reached the highest score of all the windows tested (TM Rakennusmaailma 2/06).
