Fakro L-shaped windows for Passivhaus eco-building

FAKRO has supplied L-shaped roof windows to the Green Unit®, a modular, prefabricated, single storey Passivhaus design.

FTP U5 non-vented, triple-glazed windows with a U-value of 0.97W/m2K were used with BDR tilt and turn openers in the wall. Set in a green roof, windows with an easterly aspect have AMZ external awning blinds to offset solar gain.

The Green Unit’s Jonathan Finnerty commented:

“Our carbon neutral requirement meant that procurement was considered in great depth. FAKRO worked with us to achieve what we required and gave us highly valuable advice”
