Ensinger once again received the Passive House Institute award for its Thermix warm-edge spacers during the BAU.

At the BAU, the world's leading trade fair for architecture, plastic specialist Ensinger has presented its products for energy-efficient windows, doors and facades: In metal frames, insulbar is used to create a thermal break, in insulating glazing, Thermix spacers and muntin bars provide for optimum thermal protection.

For Thermix, Ensinger has once again received the seal of the Passive House Institute. “With our component certification, we help manufacturers to develop highly energy-efficient products and bring them to the market,” says Dr. Benjamin Krick, Head of the Working Group Component Certification at the Passive House Institute.

Warm edge for cold climate

With tested thermal characteristic values, the independent Passive House Institute offers reliable planning assistance for energy-efficient buildings, for example, using energy balancing software.

Thermix is considered suitable for passive houses even in cold climate zones – from the south of Chile to northern Sweden.

“We are very pleased with the renewed award”, says Dr. Albert Lingens, Head of Thermix Sales at Ensinger. “The special seal of the Passive House Institute underlines and confirms our ongoing commitment to outstanding energy efficiency and comfort in the building.”

 

Active for the passive house

Even as passive houses were still a niche topic, Wilfried Ensinger already saw the future in warm-edge spacers.

Thermix, one of the first hybrid spacers made of highly heat-insulating plastic and stainless steel, is continuously being refined by Ensinger since 1997 and marketed worldwide.

Thermix is similarly easy to process as aluminium spacers. The special plastic used, however, has a 700 times lower heat transfer coefficient.

A thin stainless steel diffusion barrier ensures that the space between the panes of the insulating glass remains permanently gastight.
