Building products producer/supplier
The building industry is continuously facing new challenges with respect to more energy efficient and robust products and solutions.
The continuing focus on reducing emissions during a buildings lifetime requires the improvement of the design, execution and maintenance of buildings, thereby achieving the correct quality and standard. The knowhow and solutions developed through the ZEB centre have been and will continue to be important for Weber. Supporting the company in its efforts towards delivering the best products for the future. The “ZEB-knowhow” is expected to be a catalyst in future developments, and to be vital for the company.
Developing new and improved products and solutions is important and necessary for Weber. Within the ZEB-program a new concept for the well-known wall system, Leca Isoblokk, has been analysed. The existing Isoblokk-system consists of a sandwich unit with polyurethane (PUR) as the thermal insulating layer in the middle of the block. Even though PUR is one of the most the superior thermal insulating materials on the market, it continues to be important to search for solutions that are even more efficient. Embedding vacuum panels (VIP) in the polyurethane core is potentially a future solution and the concept has been thoroughly analysed as a part of the ZEB program. The concept is in production yet, but the feasibility and performance are well documented.
