What is the U-value of Fineo?

The U-value = 0.7 W/(m².K), regardless of the inclination of the window. You can find all the technical information about Fineo by downloading our datasheet.


The U-value is a thermal transmittance, or the heat loss, through a structural element (here the glazing). The lower the value, the better the thermal insulation.

How much does Fineo cost?

The cost varies greatly from one project to another depending on the complexity of your project (need for a scaffolding, dimensions of the glass panes, state of the existing frames, etc.). It is therefore difficult to provide an average cost per square meter. To obtain a precise cost, simply fill in the form and schedule your evaluation; your window professional will contact you shortly with a quote.

Why should I choose Fineo?

FINEO provides the same thermal performance as a triple-glazing unit while being as thin as a single-glazing unit. In addition to looking better on any window, it can be a requisite in renovations where the existing window frames cannot support the thickness of a triple-glazing unit.

Can Fineo be installed in a new framing system?

Yes. For more information about installing FINEO with a new window frame, please fill in the contact form on our website.


Why should I change my window glass?

Old glazing is often the root cause of poor thermal and acoustic insulation, resulting in high energy consumption. By simply changing the glass, you can significantly improve the thermal insulation of your house for a warmer, more comfortable home.

Can Fineo be installed in frames for double glazing units?

Yes, FINEO can be retrofitted in almost any existing frame, which can save you money on your renovation costs.

What are the benefits of changing the glass pane only (without changing your frame)?

The installation of FINEO glasses does not induce any dust nor complex handling. It is also more ecological and, of course, more cost-effective.

How long does it take to install Fineo?

Replacing old glass panes with FINEO into existing window frames is really quick. For residential housing, the estimated time scale is less than a day.

How do I know if my window frames are still in good condition?

Several elements must be taken into consideration to evaluate the condition of a frame.

  • The hardware: is the opening/closing system of your window still working properly?
  • The metal parts: are they still effective or do they need replacing?
  • The insulation: is it still performing as it should?

For timber frames, the condition of the wood often depends on the orientation of the building and the position of the frames in the overall facade. Frames on the ground floor are often in better condition than those at upper levels where they endure more wear and tear from wind and rain. However, the importance of the damage is often overestimated, due to the lack of an in-depth examination. This often causes owners to replace frames before it is really necessary.
Our certified FINEO installer will help you to assess the condition of your frames.

Can I keep my existing frames?

Yes, FINEO can be retrofitted into almost any existing frame, which can significantly lower your renovation costs.
