The mankind has experienced tremendous evolutions throughout the history. We got from horses to cars, from theatre to television, from letters to telephone and from records to streaming. Now another evolution takes place within the ventilations industry and even though the headline of this blog may seem like a difficult question, the answer is much more logical and valuable than it may seem at first. Over the past 5 years, the world has seen an increasing number of energy efficiency polices.

By Johan Andersson, July 17 2014

A part of our work to develop and improve solutions for roof- and wall is to expose the products in a test facility. The most correct and revealing is to test in the environment the products are used in the reality – instead of accelerated tests in a laboratory environment.
