Curtain walls forster thermfix vario Hi offers excellent heat insulation at passive-house level in the phA class. Impressive dimensions are possible with a steel profile system such as the forster thermfix vario Hi. The certified passive house elements can be designed either with profiles of 45 mm or 60 mm widths. Since this profile system is based on the standard mullion and transome constructionfrom forster thermfix vario, many components can be used system-wide. This guarantees an identical appearance of the facade, particularly for buildings with different requirements, such as burglary resistance or fire protection withinprescribed areas.
