Pre-wall installation – sticking with the old?

28 Sep 2022

Saving energy in order to reduce climate-harming CO2 emissions and reduce the pressure on renewable energy sources is one of the most important tasks of our age – and pre-wall installation can play its own part in this.

Meesenburg presents an independent study by the Passive House Institute on pre-wall installation in which classic steel angle installation is compared with a modern pre-wall installation system consisting of highly compressed EPS.

Saving energy in order to reduce climate-harming CO2 emissions and reduce the pressure on renewable energy sources is one of the most important tasks of our age – and pre-wall installation can play its own part in this.

“On the market we are still very often meeting contractors who swear by pure angle installation with the addition of insulating material in pre-wall installation,” explains Robert Leinert, head of product management for the window and external door industry in the Meesenburg Group. “What’s been good for years can't suddenly be bad overnight, can it?” is one of the questions our customers ask us. We always provide a little clarification and explain that angle installation isn’t bad in itself – but we also show that there is a better option.”

For the building sector, the passive house has for decades performed a pioneering role in this regard because it demonstrates how saving energy and costs can routinely go hand in hand with increased living comfort. One important aspect is easy-to-implement solutions, including in detail. This is why we approached the Passive House Institute to ask it to run an independent benchmarking study in which classic steel angle installation was compared with a modern pre-wall installation system made of EPS.

“Even we were a little surprised by just how clear the results were,” admits Dr.-Ing. Benjamin Krick, author of the study. “The tenor of the study is self-explanatory, however, and should convince any doubter who has so far ridiculed the modern EPS pre-wall installation system.”

The energy savings and the associated reduction in CO2 emissions that are possible compared with classic steel angle installation also make the difference in whether it is possible to comply with the guidelines for passive house windows, a comfort criterion for the cool temperate climate zone of 0.85 W/(m²K).
