Since the German government committed itself to a transition towards renewable energy and an even greater focus has been placed on energy efficiency, the energy-efficiency qualities of structural components have become an all-important factor in contemporary construction and Passivhaus design is now a hot topic. Constructing buildings in compliance with the Passivhaus standard offers the best approach to create the required carbon-neutral housing stock over the next few decades.
A Passivhaus requires energetic high-quality components to maintain its high standards. As an independent testing centre, the Passivhaus Institute in Darmstadt, Germany, carries out tests using standardised criteria to give architects and planners a clear idea of energy efficiency in construction components.
With the LAMILUX Passivhaus products, you are in safe hands in terms of energy efficiency. All of our products have the highest Passivhaus efficiency class (phA – Advanced component).
