In part two of my Passive House Insulation Series, I provide some background information about Gutex Woodfibre, and I outline the basic properties of Gutex woodfibre boards, as used extensively on the exterior of my new build Passive House. I provide a description of the Gutex Multitherm used on the walls and roofs of the buildings as well as an overview of the Pro Clima airtightness products used to achieve Passivhaus levels of airtightness.
