PHAI Patron Membership

PHAI Patron Membership At Kingspan Insulation we strive to be at the forefront of innovation and to continuously improve our products energy efficiency performance.

At Kingspan Insulation we strive to be at the forefront of innovation and to continuously improve our products energy efficiency performance. We want to help not just our customers but the Irish construction industry achieve low energy design buildings.

We want to collaborate with people and organizations who work tirelessly to create highly efficient and environmentally friendly ideas and buildings which will sustain us into the future and set a standard to which future generations can build upon.

With this in mind we are delighted to announce we are the first Irish Insulation Manufacturer company to become a PHAI patron member. The Passive House Association of Ireland promotes the Passive House concept in order to educate those within the construction industry and people who are interested in low energy building standards.

The ‘Passive House’ Standard is a construction method of building which if done correctly can all but eliminate the need for heating systems in buildings. This science based construction standard ensures high comfort levels, indoor air quality and durability. Building to this standard offers a sustainable solution that not only improves the building quality for the occupants but also it has less of an impact on the environment. 

The Passive House standard places a significant focus on performance of the building fabric where insulation is of ultimate importance – a simple concept, ‘fabric first approach’ backed up by scientific principles. Along with the highly insulated building fabric, continuity of the junctions of the various fabric elements and airtightness combine to minimise heat demand – the small residual heat and hot water demand can then be easily achieved by renewable or low energy sources.

Kingspan are delighted to join with other like-minded companies within the industry to help promote the PHAI and increase awareness of the opportunities and benefits of low energy design.
