A self-build within Bath’s Central Conservation Area has specified FAKRO FTT U6 triple-glazed roof windows, used in conjunction with in-roof solar thermal panels.

Rob Delius, Head of Sustainable Design at architect Stride Treglown, installed 6 FAKRO roof windows and 6 FAKRO solar thermal panels using B12/1 horizontal combination flashings on the south aspect.

Featuring a highly sustainable design, the FAKRO FTT U6 roof windows surpassed Passivhaus requirements, delivering an installed U-value of 0.81W/m2K.

The self-build utilises passive stack ventilation and a rainwater harvesting system, and also features a green roof area, PV tiles and sheepswool insulation.
