Construction system
BLUEFACE

Component id: 1356cs04
Manufacturer: Joaquin Hernandez Garcia SL
Category: Wall 
Construction type: Steel 
Window: Thermal simulations have been carried out with the SL82 window from Vekaplast Iberica, which has a Uw-value of 0,97 W/m²K (limiting value for the warm-temperate climate zone = 1,00 W/m²K) with Ug of 0,90 W/m²K. The following values were used: frame thickness = 124 mm, Uf = 0,95 W/m²K, Psi (glazing edge) = 0,024 W/mK (bottom), 0,023 W/mK (top / side). The Uw-value of the window of standard value (1,23 m wide, 1,48 m tall) can increase by 0,05 W/m²K through installation, i.e. Uw (installed) = 1,05 W/m²K. 
Airtightness: Air tightness is ensured by a combination of airtight membrane and tape to the exterior of the innermost gypsum board. Windows and doors should be installed using flexible gaskets and connected to the airtight membrane using suitable tape. Penetrations in the form of cables, plumbing and ventilation ducts should be sealed using suitable gaskets and/or tape. 
Illustration: The Passive House Institute has defined international component criteria for seven climate zones based on hygiene, comfort and affordability criteria. In principle, components which have been certified for climate zones with higher requirements may also be used in climates with less stringent requirements. Their use might make economic sense in certain circumstances. 
Climate zones: Warm, temperate
Remark: BlueFace is an enclosure system for homes in the category of lightweight façade, curtain wall, airtight, modular, self-supporting. It is designed in three modular layers. The inner layer consists of a metal substructure of laminated steel fixed to the main structure and G-EPS insulation (0,033 W/mK). The outer leaf consists of a 6 cm large format porcelain sandwich panel, interior technical panel and intermediate insulation (also G-EPS, 0,033 W/mK), all assembled to a tongue and groove aluminium frame with sealed connection. The inner leaf consists of a sandwich of 11 cm of technical board on both sides with intermediate insulation (also G-EPS, 0,033 W/mK) and airtight connection to the interior. As a final closure for the interior, a layer of plasterboard finish is installed, thus ensuring the closure of all connections. As this certification pertains only to the external wall, point thermal bridges caused by structural columns were not included and must be considered separately.
