LAMILUX has spent 50 years as a family business providing the best available products to the German market. Since the German government committed to transition towards renewable energy 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 Passive House design.
For the first time this level of European performance is available to the North American market. Constructing buildings in compliance with the international Passive House Standard offers the best approach to creating the required carbon-neutral building stock over the new few decades.
A Passive house requires highly energy-efficient components to maintain its high standards. As an independent testing centre, the Passive House Institute (PHI) in Darmstadt, Germany, carries out tests using standardized criteria to give architects and planners a clear idea of energy efficiency in construction components. LAMILUX glass roof and façade elements are the first available in North America to receive PHI certification grad A - Advance Component status.
