The new Veldhuizerschool in Ede had to use up to 80% less energy by using passive resources. The fully energy-efficient school is built according to the standards of passive construction.
The Solatube Ø 35 cm ECO is equipped with an additional dome, insulation lens and insulated roof flashing. As a result, insulation values of up to 0.7 W / m²K are achieved, making it suitable for passive construction. This contributes to a significant reduction in energy consumption. Moreover, it has been scientifically proven that daylight entry contributes to improved school performance of the children. Daylight provides more ability to concentrate, a better mood, more productivity, less disease and it reduces errors.
