The Glass Skylight FE Passivhaus has been certified by the Passive House Institute in Darmstadt, Germany as a “pha Advanced Component”, the highest Passive House efficiency class. This skylight therefore meets the criteria for one of the most sustainable trends in contemporary construction and is suitable for the most demanding type of energy-efficient construction. The Passive House efficiency classes take into account heat loss and solar energy gain. Minimum heat loss is achieved due to the frame system design have excellent U values and low glass edge Ψ-values. In addition, the narrow frame profiles maximise solar gain.
Optional: opening for daily ventilation
• 230v chain drive
• Concealed with covering panel
• 300mm stroke length
• Hinged as standard on short side
Consideration must be made on pitched roofs regarding hinge position orientation - please call 01284 749051 to speak to a sales advisor for guidance
Smoke Ventilation AOV's
Whilst Passivhaus certified SHEV solutions are not available within the marketplace, LAMILUX Smoke Lift Glass Skylight FE's and LAMILUX Smoke Lift FE - Solid insulated Lid's have been supplied and installed in buildings that have gone on to be awarded Passivhaus certification
The Glass Skylight FE Passivhaus fulfils the highest Passive House efficiency class: phA advanced component with its heat transfer coefficent USL of 0.68 w/(m²k). Featuring a triple step sealing system alongside its optimised insulation core, the aluminium framed triple glazed FE Passivhaus skylight offers maximum energy efficiency and thermal insulation. With high levels of wind and rain resistance, alongside enhanced isothermal characteristics in the overall construction – the unrivalled performance of this range results in no condensation alongside excellent air tightness values. The thermally broken “isothermally balanced”aluminium frames feature optimally aligned 12.6° isotherm line. This means that the thermally broken 12.6° isothermal line remains within the structure (see diagram) for consistent heat insulation without any weak spots, reducing condensation, mould and bacteria. The TIP (Total Insulated Product) is certified in accordance with EN ISO 14021.
