LAROS Group has been working in the Passive House space in Australia for over a decade. Since our inception, we have been passionate about supplying best-in-class products and supporting all aspects of your build with our in-depth knowledge and experience. Backed by this expertise, LAROS Structures sets out to provide a new and unique offering that brings the high-quality, high-performance and integrity of the Passivhaus standard to the prefabricated construction industry.
By manufacturing with structural timber panels, including windows, insulation, airtight seals and membranes, we can guarantee a Passivhaus standard structure delivered to site weatherproof and ready for lockup. We pay attention to the fine details during the entire design, manufacture and install; including assessment of the airtightness and hygrothermal properties of the structure appropriate to your climate zone. This ensures a self-drying structure that eliminates the buildup of condensation and the potential for mould or rot forming in the wall, floor or roof. The result is a healthy home for the occupants and a strong, reliable building that stands the test of time.
The panel system is designed to provide you with a high-performance, healthy building appropriate to your climatic zone, wherever you live in Australia.
The Solid Timber Panel, Earthwool® and ProClima membranes combine in a 230mm wall with an approximate R-Value of 6.3 m2K/W, more than three times the typical performance of standard 90mm stud frames. So you get excellent thermal protection to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.
The structure is also designed, built and installed to an airtightness of ≤0.6 m3/m2/hr @ 50 Pa, keeping your conditioned air inside and ensuring that the insulation is performing at its best. Combined with vapour permeable membranes, a controlled diffusion gradient is established through the walls and roof. The resulting self-drying structure eliminates the buildup of condensation and the potential mould or rot forming in the wall or roof. This is healthy for the building structure, and for the occupants as well.
