Construction system
Quantum Wall System - Type 1

Component id: 1554wa02
Manufacturer: Quantum Passivhaus
Category: Wall 
Construction type: Light (Wood) 
Window: Analysis was undertaken using a high quality Passive House window with a Uw-value of 0,60 W/(m²K) using a Ug of 0,52 W/(m²K), a SWISSPACER Ultimate spacer and butyl secondary seal. The installed U-value meets the comfort requirement of Passive House buildings using a reference size of 1,23 by 1,48 m. 
Airtightness: The airtightness of the construction system is achieved through the use of an airtight membrane, fixed to the inside of the supporting joists and behind the service cavity. Joints are secured with specialist air tightness tape. The system also includes a wind- and waterproof membrane, fixed to the outside of the exterior insulation, with joints secured as above. 
Explanatory note: The Quantum Wall System is a lightweight timber frame construction system, insulated with mineral wool (0,036 / 0,046 W/(mK)) and cellulose (0,045 W/(mK)). The system is intended to be used with a ventilated rainscreen to the exterior, for which additional point thermal bridges may need to be taken into account in the design phase. The system has been designed to meet the Passive House Institute criteria for opaque components in the cold (Types A1, A1.1) and cool-temperate (Types A2, A2.1) climate zone, and is also suitable for use in the warm-temperate zone. 
Climate zones: Cold
