DVS to showcase passive roof lights at Passivhaus Conference
DVS (Daylight & Ventilation Solutions), rooflight supplier to Point6Projects’ outstanding Oyster Falls House in Devon, which is featured in the new issue of Passive House Plus, will be exhibiting at the 2015 UK Passivhaus Conference at the London Design Centre on Tuesday, October 20th.
As the first UK rooflight supplier to achieve phA Advanced Component passive house certification, DVS is a strong advocate of the passive house movement and has been a Passivhaus Trust member since 2012.
DVS offers two different passive house rooflight products, both manufactured in Germany by Lamilux, one of Europe’s leading rooflight specialists. The Lamilux PR60energysave Glass Roof System sets the benchmark for energy efficient large area atrium glazing with a total product Ucwi value of between 0.81 and 1.00. For smaller areas, the company’s FEenergysave Flat Roof Skylights offer an outstanding solution, with a USL value of less than 0.84.
As well as state-of-the-art thermal performance, both systems offer excellent aesthetics with a wide range of sizes, options and accessories.
Daniel Boughton, DVS’ Managing Director, said: “The passive house concept is fast becoming mainstream and we believe that rooflights will make an increasingly important contribution to achieving passive house status in both domestic and commercial buildings, so our attendance at the conference is a priority for us.”
DVS has recently supplied passive house rooflights for a variety of buildings throughout the UK, from a large PR60energysave glass roof at Leicester University’s New Centre for Medicine – the UK’s largest passive house building – to many private homes. These include Oyster Falls and Springfield House by Wilf Meynell of Studio Bark – as featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs programme, as well as many other exciting projects.
2015 will be DVS’s fourth appearance at the Passivhaus Conference in consecutive years, and the company will also be exhibiting at the Passivhaus Pavilion at Ecobuild 2016.
