Products In Practice: Wraptite In Passive Schools

With rising energy costs and net-zero targets driving requirements to reduce building energy use, building operators are increasingly looking to Passivhaus standards. As well as reducing overall energy use, these high-performance, high-quality building envelopes can deliver the indoor air quality required to ensure healthy spaces to live, work and study.
