A Glass Roof for a Passive House - EBSA's latest Whitepaper takes a closer look at Specifying Glass Roof Systems for Thermal Efficiency, Natural Ventilation & System Control.
Good building design plays a critical role in regulating temperatures within an indoor space and reducing our reliance on mechanical heating and cooling. With an increased awareness of the cost and environmental impacts of energy use, designers and specifiers are looking for design solutions that can provide thermal performance without compromising on aesthetics. A well-designed glass roof has these advantages.
Good glass roof design delivers exceptional insulation, ventilation, and weather-tightness. These characteristics are in line with Passive House design principles that ensure a building delivers very high performance, ultra-low energy use, and maximum comfort over its lifetime.
