Man was once an outdoors man, living in and with nature, in the open air… now however, we spend 90% of our time indoors…Yet we still feel better when we’re outside, at the beach, in the forest, in our own garden... So isn’t it about time that we return to the  ‘core’, to make more use of what nature has to offer us?
At first sight, this recent, ultramodern, newly built villa in the leafy land­scape between Mechelen and Leuven with sleek white walls and huge windows seemed to offer everything needed for a carefree and comfortable life. That’s exactly what the owners thought when they moved in seven years ago. Unfortunately, they soon realised they would have to find the right solution to keep the interior cool on hot days: those large windows might let in an abundance of daylight, but they also ...

The healthy house on the hill

A wooden, nearly zero-energy, passive house build on a hill, in accordance with the Feng Shui principles, that’s not something you see every day. Since it is not comfortable to live in a well-insulated, passive house without ventilation system, the Renson Endura Delta D+ system with heat recovery was installed.
In Australia, the University of New South Wales launched an experimental project, which examined the detrimental effect of bad air on the behavior and learning abilities of pupils. They went even further by comparing a class without ventilation system with a class that had a ventilation system. The system that was used was our smart ventilation unit, the Renson Healthbox 3.0. The results of the research are too say the least astonishing.
Creating an oasis of peace in the midst of the hustle and bustle of an international airport seems too crazy for words, but the impossible was just what Atlanta Airport wanted. When they learned about Renson and our terrace coverings, they realised that that peaceful oasis was closer than they had initially thought. Atlanta Airport was amazed by the many options and possibilities of the Renson Skye and came to the c...
Ventilation makes a huge difference between good and bad health; yet our houses have incredibly polluted indoor air. Formaldehyde, particulates and benzene all contribute to polluted air and we breathe it in and are unaware of the pollution. We become aware of this when the situation goes wrong because the problem becomes visible.
Do you remember the unbearable heat last summer? Are we going to face another summer like that this year? Given the number of sunny and warm days so far, there is a high chance. Once again, we will be turning up the air con. However, many people don’t realise that air con units are actually part of the problem. It may sound strange, but the combination of screens and night cooling offer a natural and very effective solution.
On the 25th of april, only 10 Km away from the actual headquarters - and again - alongside the E17 motorway in Waregem, Paul Renson (Renson CEO) turned the first spade of earth to kick-start the construction of the brand-new Outdoor Experience Centre, Renson’s outdoor living flagship that is due to be fully operational by 2021. The building is set to become the ultimate international reference for a comprehensive garden experience.
