New Building standards – to make an important step to environmental sustainability!
Passive House is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building’s ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. A similar standard, MINERGIE-P, is used in Switzerland. PLASTBAU ® Building System gives you the chance to easily reach those energy savings levels.
The standard are not only to residential properties, but also several office buildings, schools and malls have been constructed with those characteristics. The design is a process which is integrated with the architectural design. PLASTBAU ® has the Technology to be applied to Passive Houses, for new project and for refurbishments.
As prescribed by Directive 2010/31 / EC which provides that by 31 December 2020 all new buildings must be nZEB “nearly Zero Energy Building”, the Passive standard is now a very current topic and will be the rule for the future.
PLASTBAU ® Products, such as PLASTBAU 3 and 5 Wall, PLASTBAU SIP and PLASTBAU Metal Floor and 5 Floor are perfect to build with the Passive House standards. The U-Value can reach 0.086 W/m2K while construction times and costs remain unchanged!
