New regulation Part O “Overheating in Homes”
Passive solutions explained in our on-line video we explain the problems and solutions needed. Before COP26 the Climate Change Committee identified passive measures to prevent overheating as one of 8 critical mitigations needed. Dynamic shading with shutters and blinds is actually the insulation of the windows and the facilitator of large areas of glazing.
Over 20% of new buildings overheat, in our case study the temperature in the apartment with external louvre blinds was 18° lower than the unshaded room.
When we had North Sea Oil energy cost did not matter – it does now.
That is why we need passive solutions and now have Part O – see our video and guidance at
