Project details : A perfect synergy of the facade solution (WICTEC 50 HI with triple glazing) and the technical appliances (Ground water heat pump), led to a quite low electrical energy consumption of 23kwh/m²a for heating and lighting. This energy demand is compareable to the level of a Passiv House. A photovolatic installation of 40KWp covers this demand and surplus is used for operation of the building and test devices. Planning szenario is to reach a ZeroEnergy Building.

Facade systems

WICTEC 50

Filigree look without any change in appearance to the inner mullion and transom gaskets Ideal for vertical and polygon façades, sloped glazing and spatial structures Individual design thanks to a wide range of profile geometries for the structural and glazing profiles Uf for standard version up to 1.2W/m²K infill thickness 3 - 51mm Reliable glass load transmission (up to 4 kN), with adapted transom-joint technology Overlapping and secure drainage at the cross point, without mechanical mullion processing, ensures tried-and-tested impermeability Broad selection of profiles enables economic adaptation to structural requirements, with the additional option of internal reinforcement Glazing from outside featuring single- and/or two-part pressure and cover profiles Design options with concealed or visible screw fixture Extensive solutions for structure junctions and conservatories transom-transom facade based on WICTEC 50 transom and mullion have same geometrie thus economic 90° cut possible drainage principle via additonal horizontal profile
Built:: - High insulation
