Passivhaus rooflight at Ecobuild, stand S928

We are extremely proud to announce that our FEenergysave rooflight will be on display for the first time in the UK, at Ecobuild 2013 - stand S928.

FEenergysave - come and see it at Ecobuild stand S928

Following independent assessment by the renowned Passivhaus Institute in Darmstadt, Germany - the FEenergysave is worlds only Passivhaus certified glass skylight for flat roof installation - a superior, thermally efficient rooflight component suitable for the premier low energy building standard.

The Building Centre asked for entries from companies offering energy saving products that are truly exciting for the construction industry, and that have proven their effectiveness in reducing a buildings carbon footprint. At Ecobuild this year, The Building Centre are creating a mini gallery on stand S928, that showcases just 8 of the industries most innovative products - and the FEenergysave was chosen for inclusion by impartial industry experts.

With many suppliers offering unsubstantiated claims in their literature of thermal efficiency, and of low "U-values", often to either an undefined standard or simply quoting the glazing only (Ug) value - we see this as a real opportunity to show visitors what sets our rooflights apart from the rest of the market.

Come and view our sample on stand S928 - Ecobuild is held at Excel, London from 5th - 7th March and is free to attend, but you do need to register: CLICK HERE.

Please let us know if you'd like more information on the FEenergysave, or any of our other premium rooflights, by commenting below or by sending us an email.

Passivhaus at Ecobuild 2013

As members of The Passivhaus Trust, it is very encouraging that Passivhaus is well and truly "on the agenda" at Ecobuild 2013.

Excel, London: 5th, 6th & 7th March 2013

Ecobuild is the world's biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment, and so a growing Passivhaus presence can only be a good thing in our opinion.

The Passivhaus movement have its own dedicated 120 seated theatre (Seminar Room 1) where all of the Passivhaus seminars will be taking place over the 3 days. A full program of talks will examine why Passivhaus is a standard worth aiming for and the design and technical strategies needed to achieve it. The session also explores how Passivhaus interfaces with UK specific regulations and how it can be used on large projects.

In addition, The Passivhaus Trust have stand N351 which is diagonally opposite Seminar Room 1, which promises to be a great place to meet and discuss the superior low energy building standard, with the countries leading experts.
