FAKRO roof windows for Aberdeenshire Passivhaus self-build

FAKRO FTT U6 and FTP U5 Electro triple-glazed roof windows were used on Carsluchie Croft, a Passivhaus project which maximises controlled solar gain.

The compact 1½ storey form reflects local vernacular architecture, with the angled bay on the south side designed as a dynamic element to contrast with the compact solid stone-clad form of the majority of the house.

The FTT U6 has an exceptional U-value of 0.81W/m2K while the FTP U5 windows also had Z-wave connectivity enabling them to be operated from a laptop, mobile or tablet. All windows were also fitted with thermal flashings to enhance airtightness.
