Passive building

A passive house combines various and latest know-how from the field of designing and constructing buildings. As a result of numerous studies in the field of efficient use of energy in buildings and the demands for a comfortable way of living, the passive building standard establishes construction criteria that significantly exceed the general standards and regulations.
The main idea of a passive house is that it is designed and made so that it provides the required heating energy throughout the winter with the help of internal sources and solar energy. During hot summer days, it provides tolerable temperatures with the help of nocturnal cooling. A passive house thus consumes very little energy for winter heating and summer cooling.

We have developed two construction systems that meet the standards for a passive building:

Properties:

  • This system is recommended for all who wish to build a passive house with the lowest costs possible.

 

Thickness: 475 mm
Heat transfer: 0.09 W/(m2 K)
Soundproofing: Rw ≥ 52 dB
Fire resistance: REI 60 min
Phase delay: +12 h

 

Detailed system technical properties: Rihter Pasiv

Properties :

  • The Rihter Pasiv + construction system was developed to meet the passive class even for those houses that do not meet the essential requirements for a passive building.

 

Thickness: 535 mm
Heat transfer: 0.08 W/(m2 K)
Soundproofing: Rw ≥ 53 dB
Fire resistance: REI 60 min
Phase delay: +13 h

Rock wool is used as thermal insulation in both construction systems and provides very good sound proofing and fire safety of the house.
