Passive houses do away completely with conventional heating systems. Their sophisticated design limits the annual energy needs to no greater than 15 kWh per square metre. These low energy needs can then be covered solely with passive energy sources like e.g. solar gains or body heat emissions. The associated high energy saving requirements for the building can also be found in its separate parts. Window systems are therefore calculated or measured depending on the testing institute and afterwards certified for its passive house suitability.
The KBE 76 passive house gives you such a window system. Certified by the ift in Rosenheim according to WA-15/2, it has precisely those requirements a window system needs to be installed in a passive house.
The KBE 76 passive house system achieves these high thermal insulation values thanks to the two upgrade technologies AluClip Pro and proEnergyTec, and that in two variants.
In KBE 76 passive house, some of the load bearing capacity is transferred to the aluminium cover AluClip Pro. The unused reinforcing chambers are filled with proEnergyTec foam. There is no need for complex bonding as with other systems. The resulting thermal insulation values fulfill the required passive house standard. Moreover, the environment also benefits in that proEnergyTec can be recycled easily at a later date.
Also the AluClip Pro cover is fully recyclable, like the rest of the window. Furthermore, the technology presents a convincing combination of appealing design, stability under external effects, and virtually unlimited potential for paint and finishing effects.
All in all a highlight in every passive house.
