FAKRO meets Passivhaus requirements at Scottish Housing EXPO

FAKRO’s FTT U5 Thermo triple glazed roof windows were among products chosen for use at Scotland’s first ever 'Housing Expo', at Balvonie Braes south of Inverness.

52 architect-designed homes on the 5 hectare brownfield site included some built along 'Passivhaus' principles, showcasing the very latest in sustainability. With an overall U-value of 0.94W/m2K, the FTT will make a major contribution towards energy saving when the Highland Housing Alliance makes 27 available for sale or rent.

With their high quality, slow growing redwood pine frames, FAKRO roof windows like the FTT Thermo are being used increasingly as a key element of interior design.

The 52 Housing Expo properties were all competition winners and have interiors co-ordinated by leading household names in modern design. Each is unique and promotes eco-friendly living, with many exceptional examples of how to use the roofspace.
