SMARTPLY PROPASSIV chosen for Passivhaus home

MEDITE SMARTPLY has provided its structural panel for a home built to Passivhaus standards in Cork. Designed and built to Passivhaus standards by specialist manufacturer Shoalwater Timberframe Ltd. Manufactured off site, the stylish two storey house incorporates a range of ecological materials and systems.

MEDITE SMARTPLY's PROPASSIV structural panel with exceptional airtightness, effortlessly met the brief, even within a very tight budget. PROPASSIV has integrated vapour control and unrivalled air barrier properties and helps to close the gap between design and as-built performance.

Donal Mullins of Shoalwater Timberframe said:"Everything that happened gave the boards the opportunity to fail and they didn’t. And with PROPASSIV installed for 98% of the internal linings, the system has certainly proven to deliver outstanding airtightness under real and challenging site conditions.”
