TU Graz develops heating and cooling facad
October 2017

A facade that cools in summer and heats in winter, and that with the power of the sun: What sounds like future is currently being developed at Graz University of Technology in cooperation with a Slovenian company.

A facade should be able to do more than just complete a room - that is the basic idea of the researchers at Graz University of Technology, who are now trying to integrate several functions into one facade - namely to warm and to cool the interiors.

Excursion Roofprotector
29th of September 2017

Shortly before the beginning of the semester a small excursion to Klagenfurt took place; it was the Fleischmann & Petschnig roofing Ges.m.b.H. visited in the capital of Kärnten. Central topic was the roofing technology, in particular the so-called "Roofprotector". It permanently monitors the status of the moisture content in the flat roof package and records relevant measurement data using measuring sensors.

Thanks to the company FP-Dach for insights into a product with future.
