60% of Passivhaus windows have SWISSPACER inside

A report by the internationally respected Passivhaus Institute in Germany shows SWISSPACER is the most popular warm edge spacer bar for Passivhaus windows, doors and curtain wall constructions.

 

Passivhaus is the world’s leading ‘fabric first’ approach to low energy buildings. Regarded by many as the ‘Diamond standard’ of energy efficiency, the basic principles of Passivhaus are excellent thermal performance and exceptional airtightness with mechanical ventilation.

 

The study was conducted by Dr Benjamin Krick, Green Technology Expert at the Passivhaus Institute. Since 2011, 60% of all Passivhaus-approved windows have had SWISSPACER inside. This figure rises to 66% in Passivhaus sliding doors and a staggering 90% in curtain wall constructions.

 

Windows in Passivhaus constructions have a U-value of 0.8W/m2K or less. SWISSPACER is the most popular choice amongst Passivhaus window fabricators because it gives the best thermal performance, long-lasting results and is ideally suited to triple glazing. According to the Passivhaus Institute, the best-performing SWISSPACER Passivhaus window had a Psi value of just 0.02 W/mK.

 

SWISSPACER Business Development Manager Karl-Theo Roes says: “This Passivhaus report makes fascinating reading. Passivhaus is the fastest-growing energy standard in the world and it’s very encouraging to hear that SWISSPACER is so widely used. SWISSPACER is the natural choice for Passivhaus and all low-energy windows because it has the best thermal performance in the world. Unlike some other warm edge spacer bars, it is rigid and strong enough to cope with the extra pane of glass in triple glazing without any modifications.

 

“Dr Benjamin Krick will be on the SWISSPACER stand at the FIT Show on Wednesday 11th June to tell fabricators and installers more about the Passivhaus standard. Dr Krick will also be speaking at SWISSPACER’s FIT Show seminar on the future of energy efficiency: A+ and after: the Ultimate in Energy Saving”. The seminar is taking place at 2.30pm on Wednesday 11th June, with a number of prominent industry experts taking part – it’s not one to miss!”
