Passive House Systems

RAICO Bautechnik was the first German system house to have their curtainwall system certified by the Passive House Institute Dr. Feist Darmstadt in 1999. RAICO has a complete suite of PHI certified systems, which enables integrated design on complex projects with various curtainwall, skylight, window &door elements:

  • THERM+ Curtainwall in Aluminum, Steel and Timber
  • THERM+ Skylights in Aluminum, Steel and Timber
  • FRAME+ 90 Windows, Operable Vents, Window wall and Terrace Doors (Tilt & Turn/ Tilt & Slide)
  • FRAME+ 120 Operable roof light
  • FRAME+ 75 Swing door (with insulated solid panel)

The complete curtainwall system THERM+ is certified according to the newest criteria by Passive-House Institute Dr. Wolfgang Feist. The comfort criterion in passive house of Ucw = 0.80 W/(m2K) is fulfilled by the mullion-transom curtainwall systems THERM+ A-V and THERM+ S-I , as well as by THERM+ H-V. All certifications consider the influence of screwing using RAICO’s standard pressure plate screws and RAICO’s special glass carriers.
