Fakro award-winning roof windows

Fakro has won a prestigious Red Dot Design Award for its DEF U6 triple-glazed flat roof window. The awards are often described as the 'Oscars' of industrial design. Seeing off competition from a record number of 5,214 applications from 57 countries, Fakro's design has helped redefine the visual aesthetic for flat roof windows. 

The DEF U6 combines innovation in functionality with a high visual aesthetic and is already in use throughout the world. With a U-value of 0.88W/m²K provided by a triple seal system, the window is electrically operated and Z-wave compatible. Manual (DMF) and non-opening (DXF) options are also available as is the quadruple-glazed DEF U8. This offers a U-value of 0.76W/m²K - ideal for Passivhaus and energy-efficient construction. The company's recent ColourLine launch has taken design scope even further by enabling outer cladding and inner surfaces to be specified in any RAL colour from the ‘Classic Palette’.
