Passive House or Passivhaus? GlasCurtain Does That Too!
Passive House (or Passivhaus) is a German-developed standard for ultra-high-performance, ultra-low-energy-use construction projects ; one of the most ambitious in the world, particularly in terms of envelope performance.
What started out as a high bar for European residential projects 27 years ago has since grown into an internationally recognised model for residential, commercial, and institutional architecture. Thieincreasing industry interest in Passive House in the North America market has encouraged GlasCurtain to develop a customised version of our Fibreglass Curtain Wall System that complies with the stringent requirements of this emerging standard.
Through continual Research & Development, GlasCurtain is now able to offer Fibreglass Curtain Wall Systems with UCW of 0.63W/m2K for cold climates and UCW of 0.73W/m2K for cool, temperate climates, meaning that your next Passive House building can have all the daylight you desire without sacrificing thermal performance or thermal comfort.
