The firm—based in Ireland with distribution throughout Ireland, the UK, North America, and mainland Europe—is dedicated to producing and supplying high-performance technological solutions to create efficient, sustainable residential and commercial buildings. You likely know Partel for its wide range of airtight and windtight systems for Passive House projects, including monolithic breathable membranes, airtight and wind tight tapes, thermal bridging solutions and adhesives that enhance energy efficiency.

Partel sees its support of the Accelerator as advancing its goal to spur a transition to zero carbon buildings.

“As one of the leading specialists in high-performance air and wind tight components for energy-efficient buildings, it’s our responsibility to support organizations like Passive House Accelerator in the move towards zero carbon buildings, through collaboration and knowledge sharing, as well as ensuring that our advanced solutions are accessible to help meet these standards to a much bigger market,” said Hugh Whiriskey, Partel’s founder and Technical Director.

“Increased efficiency in buildings is accelerated by choosing smart building envelope systems. This leads to intelligent energy consumption, and building longevity. This is where our technical expertise and material can be part of the solution. We are proud to belong to a community of shared values.”

We’re honored to partner with Partel and its mission-driven approach, and are eager to collaborate with Hugh and his team to advance uptake of Passive House design and construction. Please stay tuned!
