New construction Monte Rosa Hut

Optimized thermal insulation on 2,883 m

In order to achieve a degree of self-sufficiency of 90% with regard to energy consumption, the outer shell, among other things, was highly thermally insulated. In order to minimize the thickness of the insulation, the U*psi F-300 insulation stand with insulated web gaps was used, which minimizes thermal bridges.

Configuration overview

Components used

  • LIGNO® U*psi  |  Insulation joist

    Product code: LIGNO® U*psi F_g_300
    Insulation joist

    The lower the U-value of a component and the lower the psi value of the details, the less heat is lost. This is precisely where the U*psi® cross-laminated timber insulating uprights from Lignotrend come into effect: They implement high insulating thicknesses in natural timber and minimise thermal bridges.
