By innovating in the building envelope, Sapa has grown to become the leading worldwide supplier of aluminium-based window and façade products and solutions. Cooperation with the ZEB Centre is a key part of this work.
Sapa is investigating next-generation window and façade technologies in order to produce even more dynamic envelope components – components that work with heating, cooling and ventilation systems, provide sound insulation and which offer greater amounts of daylight. The goal is to maximize the comfort of occupants while minimizing energy use.
Cooperation with the ZEB Centre enables Sapa to test these kinds of components and to assess performance parameters for consultants and planners of zero-energy buildings. It also allows the company to validate the robustness, service life and overall life-cycle performance of its products.
