“A carbon-negative, electricity-generating, boiler-free marvel that can also claim to be the greenest home ever built in this country” – The Sunday Telegraph

FAKRO FTT U5 Thermo triple glazed roof windows have been used in Associated Architects’ ground breaking designs for eco-vicarages at Kingswinford and Webheath in the Diocese of Worcester. Believed to be England’s first ever homes to achieve both Code 6 PassivHaus and Code for Sustainable Homes Level 6 the FTT U5 provides a U-value of 0.94W/m2K and was chosen as part of the overall airtightness strategy. Heat loss will be less than one tenth that of an average home, earning the title of zero carbon ‘passive house’. John Christophers of Associated Architects commented, “Energy demand is reduced to an absolute minimum with super insulation, triple glazing and super air-tight construction”. There are thought to be only around 20,000 buildings in the world which meet the same 'green' criteria.
