The passive house is the high end solution for energy efficient buildings. Unlike conventional residential units, this can do away completely with a heating system. The heating requirements are generated completely from passive energy sources like e.g. body heat or solar gains.
The passive house concept can therefore work only in conjunction with an ingenious thermal insulation. Above all the windows must fulfil the highest energy saving quality standards if they are to satisfy these exceptionally stringent specifications. The KBE System_88mm passive house fulfils these extremely high requirements and has been certified to this extent by the passive house institute Dr. Feist. The exceptional properties of the product have also been honoured with the 2010 Solvin Award for PVC innovations.
Intelligent rebate base bonding technology greatly enhances the stability of the window profile – hence there is no need for additional reinforcements in the sash. All major cavities in the window sash are insulated with inserts. The window frame is also fitted with inserts and an innovative thermo steel in addition. This serves primarily for the reliable attachment of locking plates and ensures that the window can be opened and closed easily for a very long time.
This passive house variant is fully recyclable and offers you the best thermal insulation values for years to come. Of course, this system can also be installed in low energy and standard homes where it makes an excellent contribution to energy savings.
- Stable installation depth of 88 mm.
- Intelligent 6-chamber centre seal technology
- The installed system achieves a Uw value of 0.8 W/(m²K)
- Use of bonding technology and insulation cores
- Owing to their separate profiles and insulation cores, our windows can be completely recycled
- Our greenline principle: Energy efficient window systems, lead free stabilisers in virgin material, and intelligent regrind concepts provide for that extra sustainability
- Winner of the 2010 SolVin Award for PVC innovations in the category “Recycling”
