Jenison, Mich.-based Pleotint LLC has announced that the Rehau® Montana “ecosmart house” features its Suntuitive interlayer technology.
Built in Bozeman, Mont., the Rehau Montana ecosmart house is serving as a residential modeling and construction project to expand the knowledge of environmental and human sustainability, according to Rehau, which is sponsoring the project.
“We were determined to use innovative energy and building technologies that maximize energy efficiency and occupant comfort, such as the high-performance Rehau window designs that feature the Suntuitive interlayer,” says Ralph Childs, Western region commercial sales manager for Rehau North America’s door and window business unit.
The ecosmart house is functioning as a living lab for MSU CRLab, where its energy performance is being tested over a two-year period. More than 300 sensors placed throughout the house will collect data to evaluate the performance of the various building systems in everyday life situations, as well as how each of the systems contributes to the home’s energy efficiency, comfort and life-cycle costs.
