Hormipresa Arctic Wall: prefabricated construction system achieves Passivhaus component certification

Hormipresa Arctic Wall: prefabricated construction system achieves Passivhaus component certification Hormipresa Arctic Wall is a fully industrialised construction system, certified for passive houses in the warm-temperate climate zone, as the regular U-values of the exterior components are below 0,25 W/m²K and the connections meet the criteria of ‘thermal bridge free’. The system consists of 9cm…
