SWISSPACER wins ‘ultimate’ Passivhaus seal of approval

In April 2014, the Passivhaus Institute held its first ‘Passivhaus Components Awards’ for the most thermally-efficient Passivhaus windows.

SWISSPACER ULTIMATE is the first warm edge spacer bar to be awarded a ‘Passivhaus approved’ certificate.  

The awards took place in Aachen, Germany and recognised high-quality, cost-effective Passivhaus components. The results were based on tests to a detached house in Germany, and were open to all Passivhaus windows. Out of the 12 winning windows, eight had SWISSPACER ULTIMATE inside.

SWISSPACER ULTIMATE was the first warm edge spacer bar to apply for ‘Passivhaus-approved’ certification and the only spacer to be awarded the highest Class A classification. The world-famous Passivhaus institute also confirmed ULTIMATE is best for energy efficiency in all climates.

Walter Schreiber, SWISSPACER Head of R&D attended the awards. He commented: “We were delighted so many winning Passivhaus windows featured SWISSPACER. Over 60% of all Passivhaus windows have SWISSPACER inside because it’s the best for thermal efficiency.

“The Passivhaus Institute is the world’s leading fabric-first approach to low energy buildings and the diamond standard for energy efficiency. We are particularly proud that SWISSPACER ULTIMATE is the first ‘Passivhaus approved’ warm edge spacer bar – it’s great to have the recognition from such a prestigious institution.”
