Passive House, Zero Net Energy and Green building professionals have often struggled to find a simple and effective insulation panel to augment the exterior wall insulation on new or existing buildings, which is why Legalett of Ontario, Canada came up with the highly effective yet easy to use ThermalWall PH Panel. As Lloyd Alter of Treehugger put it "Compare this to trying to hang siding six inches out in the air so that we can insulate with Roxul, this is a lot easier" - and "I do often foam at the mouth about foam insulation and have always promoted alternatives. But this system really does provide a continuous wrap of effective insulation from under the foundation to the roof. It is going to be pretty airtight too. It is such a simple system that makes a very good case for the stuff..."

Come and see ThermalWall PH for yourself, and take the opportunity to discuss the simple way to insulate to Passive House standards for new builds or renovations at IIDEX Canada November 29–30, 2017, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Special Presentations & Demonstrations will be held on both days at 11:45pm and 3:45pm in the Passive House Pavilion.

Legalett will be exhibiting again in the Passive House Feature Pavilion (Booth 4319) as part of the IIDEX Canada Exhibition (North Building). The Buildings Show is North America's Largest Exposition, Networking and Educational Event and will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Building professionals, developers, manufacturers, and public officials have used the Passive House Standard to deliver high-performance buildings in a competitive marketplace. But what exactly is a Passive House-? There will be a range of seminars and displays of Passive House technology including the National Summit on Passive House on Thursday November 29th from 8:30am-1pm.

Come and visit us in Booth 4319 (North Bldg) and find out more about Legalett's GEO-Passive super-insulated Slab-on-Grade Foundation, ThermalWall PH Panel super insulating wall panels (https://goo.gl/2XR1Rr) and our new SunWall PH Active Solar Heating System for Passive Homes.

See how easy it is to install Legalett's ThermalWall PH Panel wall insulation system for Passive House Construction or Net Zero Energy Building (NZEB) designs. In one simple, secure and cost effective operation the wall insulation performance of practically any building, be that new build or renovation, is boosted to R-52 or more in a continuous layer that removes thermal bridging... Practically any exterior finish can be simply added too as the strong fixing points are easy to find for attaching panelled surface finishes or even mesh for stucco!

Passivhaus Projects in Ontario Benefit from Legalett Super-Insulation

Up in the “Cottage Country” of Minden Ontario is a surprise “hot pocket” of Passive House, or Passivhaus, projects – which considering that -40°C has been known in the winter and that there is no natural gas infrastructure and electricity prices are high means that a “super-Insulated” shell is a necessity, not a luxury. The perceived downside of building to the Passivhaus standard is often cited as cost, but with recent innovations in insulation and construction techniques, Passive Houses are proving themselves to be more affordable than most people think, with the construction costs comparable to custom house construction in this area. The payback for owning such an energy efficient building is actually pretty fast… and the savings then continue throughout the lifespan of the building.

Lloyd Alter of TreeHugger.com was recently in Minden at the invitation of Passive House Canada, and these are some of his observations in relation to the super-insulated Legalett Geo-Passive frost protected shallow foundation system used:

There are very few materials that can do the job that this foam does under the floor,and it is getting better as they improve the blowing agents and get rid of flame retardants for foam used underground.

Quantum Passivhaus will do very well with their new factory and offices…they already have nine orders for new construction and a few retrofits on the boards, which is pretty spectacular for a brand new operation.

Passivhaus is a tough standard, and as Bronwyn Barry notes, it's a team sport. Quantum Passivhaus appears to have put together a team that might make it more accessible and affordable and attractive to a much larger audience. They are on to something here.

Passive House is “In” in 2017 - Especially for Legalett Canada!

The number and size of #PassiveHouse projects in North America has grown very rapidly in 2016, whilst several mid-rise residential projects currently under construction will more than quadruple the number of available units and at least triple the square footage of Passive buildings in 2017. For example, Cornell University’s 250-foot-tall, 26 story, 270,000 sqft high rise under construction on Roosevelt Island will be the tallest and biggest Passive building in the world when it is completed in 2017...

Buildings utilizing the Passive House standard use dramatically less energy than typical buildings due to a high level of insulation, high-performance windows, an airtight building enclosure, minimized thermal bridges, and continuous ventilation with energy recovery.

Legalett, North America's foremost manufacturer of Super Insulated Systems for Slab, Foundations and Walls, recently announced that they have joined Passive House Canada in bringing this Building Revolution to North America... Read More at https://goo.gl/7D8TUu

Our Latest Innovation in Passive House and Net Zero Energy Design and ICF Construction

With a standard R-Value of 28, the ThermalWall PH Panel was specifically designed to raise the insulation levels of a building enclosure to those required for #PassiveHouse or #NetZeroEnergy #NZEB #ZNE design. Secured to the outside of any structure with virtually no thermal bridging, it can transform a code compliant R-24 wall into an R-52 high performance envelope. This easy to install, well-designed EPS Foam insulation panel is taking the North American continuous exterior #insulation market by storm...
