Passive House (Passivhaus) is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building’s ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. A similar standard, MINERGIE-P, is used in Switzerland.
Effectively a “Passive House” is a green building constructed using a set of international design principles and standards that enables it to use up to 90 per cent less energy for heating and cooling than conventional buildings, thereby producing far fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
EXD High Density Insulation is the perfect product to help meet and/or exceed these requirements, used as the base material for structural raft slabs, or as additional Continuous Insulation on exterior walls.
