High-performance weather-resistive barrier passes rigorous industry standards for passive building

BEAMSVILLE, ON, October 16, 2019 – Passive House buildings provide optimal thermal comfort with minimal energy costs. To achieve this level of energy efficiency, the quality of the components used in this type of construction must meet stringent requirements. Dörken Systems Inc. is pleased to announce DELTA®-VENT SA has received Passive House component certification from the Passive House Institute (PHI).

DELTA®-VENT SA is a high-performance, three-layer air- and water-resistive barrier. Highly permeable, watertight, and aggressively self-adhering, the product ensures proper air tightness and moisture protection.

"At Dörken, we support the advancement of energy-efficient, high-performance building, and are committed to the highest standards," explained Marcus Jablonka, Vice President of Operations and Marketing at Dörken Systems Inc. "As the only PHI-approved air barrier, DELTA®-VENT SA is the best air and water barrier for passive certified homes, all while being easy to use and apply.”

Products that carry the Certified Passive House Component seal have been tested according to PHI criteria, and are two to three times more efficient than the corresponding commonly used products.

“Passive buildings consume approximately 85 per cent less energy for heating and 45 per cent less energy for cooling when compared to a conventional new building,” says Mike Fallon, Territory Sales Manager at Dörken Systems Inc. “The use of DELTA®-VENT SA contributes to the flawless functioning of the Passive House.”
