Sustainabile Urban Development, Architecture and Environment

Description

One of the main goals of the European Union is to reduce energy consumption and to increase energy efficiency on buildings. More than 40 % of prime energy in EU is consumed in buildings. Because of that EU has introduced legislation to ensure that they consume less energy. The key part of this legislation is energy performance of buildings directive, EPBD. EPBD requires from all EU countries to enhance their building regulations and to introduce energy certification schemes for buildings. Just through windows and doors, which are part of the exterior wall of a building, we can lose more than 20 % of all energy for heating. In order to achieve better heat insulation, it is very important not just to replace old windows with new better-insulated ones, but also how we install them. According to new demands the junction between construction wall and window must be airtight, resistant to different types of weather and flexible because of the construction movement. Using only classical polyurethane foam for energy efficient installation of windows is not sufficient any more. Using 3MONT system for energy efficient installation of windows and exterior doors developed in TKK Srpenica we can achieve ten times better air tightness according to classical polyurethane foam. The whole system is fully elastic and resistant to heavy weather. It fulfills all new standards of energy efficient installation by demonstrating certificates of four recognized institutes.

3 MONT - System for Energy Saving in Building
