ENERGATE® - Future Oriented from the Start

For generations, the Energate company, family-owned and founded in 1919, has focused on producing  high-quality products at their own factory in Speyer, Germany. They have continually used cutting-edge technology with their specifically developed patents to ensure that people are satisfied with their windows for years to come. Durability, comfort, safety, light-related design and a highly-efficient energy balance are values which are very important to them.

At a glance:
1919: Master glazier Ludwig F. Häußler founded the company
1950: The founder’s son and master glazier, Fritz L. Häußler,
took over the glazier’s workshop
1985: The company was transferred to his son, Dipl. Ing. FH Ludwig F. Häußler, and was restructured as Ludwig Häußler GmbH.

 

Ludwig F. Häußler is still the sole proprietor of the company.

 

H Window Company, LLC® - Simply Revolutionary

 

H Window® is the North American distributor of Energate® windows and doors. The first prototype of the H Window® was developed by Harald Kvasnes, inventor of the Spilka fully reversible projecting hinge, in Aalesund, Norway, in 1959. The idea was to have a window with a sash that would fully reverse without projecting inside the room, allowing window treatments to remain undisturbed, when cleaning the window.

 

In 1987 the H Window Company in Monticello, Minnesota, was established as a pilot program to build an aluminum/wood composite window using Spilka hardware. In 1999 the Spilka projecting hinge celebrated its 40th Anniversary with over 14 million pairs of hinges on H Windows and other windows in 12 different countries throughout the world.

In 2001, the company was purchased by a group of businessmen and financial consultants from the United States together with a group of Norwegian investors. The new company was named H Window Company, LLC., and was relocated to Ashland, Wisconsin in March of 2001.
