Benefits of retrofitting external wall insulation

If a building is poorly insulated, costs too much to heat or suffers from damp, then retrofitting external insulation can solve the problem. ProRend EIFS (External Insulation Finishing System) is a complete solution for renovating properties, both residential and community buildings. ProRend EIFS adds a new, breathable outer envelope to the building, comprising of modern external insulation under a durable and decorative render finish. EIFS can be applied retrospectively with homeowners in place; does not reduce the floor area of the property; reduces heating bills and internal condensation; gives a new finish to outer walls; and does not spread fire.

Consultancy in render and plaster application

The NHBC sought our expert advice and technical knowledge for Blue Mills in Fowey. These apartments had cracks appearing at internal corners and the render bulging and debonding at floor levels. It became clear that frame movement was an afterthought, along with inadequate size, layout and fixing of the timber battens. It was agreed with the NHBC to replace the failed system with ProWall; our industry leading rendered rainscreen cladding system. An approved applicator rectified issues with the battening and cavity, and re-finished the building to a high standard with a quality silicone finish.

External wall insulation and rendered rainscreen cladding combine on this new build regeneration project

In the dockland area of Ipswich, Stoke Quay is a multi-million pound regeneration project with 386 new homes within 3 blocks. Achieving a Code For Sustainable Homes ‘Level 3’, Stoke Quay is constructed primarily from concrete and SFS frame, with the top floors of timber frames. This development shows the diversity and rapid installation of both the ProRend EIFS rail system and ProWall rainscreen cladding. Following our calculations of wind loads, u Values, specifications and CAD details, Building Control accepted our proposed systems and work began. SAS carried out 8 further site visits ensuring quality installation at all stages.

London hotel clad with external wall insulation system

Close to Heathrow Airport, this prestigious 303-room hotel is clad with ProRend EIFS external wall insulation system. The complex benefits from the energy saving and heat retaining properties found with the ProRend EIFS system. Design assistance and multiple site visits from our technical team ensured the architect's vision for this high-profile hotel could be achieved. Platinum grade EPS was chosen as the insulation due to excellent thermal properties. Fire breaks were installed horizontally at every floor and vertically between every room using mineral wool lamella slabs. Finished using ProRend Colourtex Uniform, a flexible silicone thin coat render.

Rendered Cladding For Timber Frame Houses, Northam

Rendered cladding for timber frame houses on these 8 new builds set in the grounds of a Manor House. Using the ProWall rendered rainscreen cladding system. Our ProWall rendered cladding gives a contemporary finish for these spacious familiy properties. We worked closely with this build in North Devon, giving site support at the battening, boarding, and rendering stages to ensure the ProWall system was applied to specification. SAS Europe also trained 15 members of the application team at a day course in our render training centre. Finished with ProRend Colourtex silicone thin coat render, available in various colours and textures.

Rendered facades chosen by Premier Inn and Beefeater

A coastal getaway and a 12-floor monolith, both from Premier Inn needed durable and low maintainance facades. See how the UK's largest Premier Inn at Gatwick Airport's North Terminal keeps guests warm with ProRend EIFS external wall insulation over blockwork. The new build timber frame Premier Inn in Weymouth chose a different solution - the coastal hotel is protected by ProWall rainscreen cladding for a durable finish in an exposed location. ProWall rainscreen cladding and ProRend EIFS acheived a great finish and durable rendered facades for two very different builds.

Rendered rainscreen cladding for architect-designed timber frame house

This property on exposed coastline seamlessly blends modern with the unusual. ProWall provides the durable rendered rainscreen for the timber frame, protecting it from rain and strong winds. ProWall benefits from extensive testing for wind loading and has a BBA certificate with a 60-year durability lifecycle. Our technical team conducted site visits to sign off at 4 stages; batten installation, board and bead installation, basecoat application and completion of the top coat. This is a standard we aim for with ProWall systems installed by our trained applicator network.

Rendered rainscreen remedial for timber frame

This timber frame house with badly cracked render was saved from damp and cold with ProWall seamless rendered rainscreen. The lightweight ProWall system replaced the failed render, keeping the traditional rendered look and giving a watertight, breathable facade. The existing render varied from 30mm to 60mm, and was embedded with expanded metal lathing (EML). The repetitve expansion and contraction of the EML had cracked the render around it. After removing the old render ProWall rainscreen was installed. This included new battening, an advanced render carrier board, and ventilation beads under the soffits and at the base.

Self clean paint and mineral thin coat render restore 19th century hotel

The Great Western Hotel, a landmark dating from the 19th century has been re-finished in ProRend’s breathable Mineraltex render and Self-Clean Masonry Paint. Sitting in a high-traffic area, the light colour chosen might have been a problem - but by using ProRend Mineraltex, a breathable and lightweight thin coat render, finished with Self-Clean Masonry Paint the hotel will maintain its impressive exterior. The self-clean finish washes clean in the rain, as water drops gather up grit and pollution deposits and beads them off the surface. ProRend paints are available in more than 65,000 colours.

Silicone monocouche render for new build eco-houses

Our premium through-colour monocouche lends sharp lines and contemporary colours to the natural materials of slate, stone and oak. Each home in this Devon village development is individual in design and uses the ProRend palette of Ocean, Bamboo and White to visually tie the development together. ProRend Colour is a premium quality silicone monocouche render with fast application by hand or machine sprayed. This render has an attractive 2mm fine-scraped finish with a refined mica sparkle.

Steel frame clad with curved rendered rainscreen

Metres from the North Sea, the 22-million-pound redevelopment of Bridlington Leisure World has a steel frame creating sweeping curves to a staggered façade, using ProBoard's ability to bend to a radius of 1.5m. The ProWall system uses a flexible ProBoard render carrier board fixed to timber battens over breather membrane, backing board and insulated steel frame. ProRend Lite was used as a lightweight basecoat incorporating ProMesh Grade 3 reinforcement mesh. The ProWall system was finished with the flexible, silicone resin based ProRend Colourtex decorative render to create a low maintenance and durable finish.

The Deerings - RIBA Award winnng pasivhaus using ProWall rendered rainscreen cladding

Award-winning ‘The Deerings’ a Passivhaus in Hertfordshire by Nicolas Tye Architects and Gresford Architects teamed ProWall rendered cladding in a custom dark grey with weathered wooden cladding and grey hard landscaping materials.
