BBA Agrément Certificate
A mechanically fixed insulated render system designed especially for steel and timber framed structures, where a drainage cavity is required to satisfy NHBC standards.
Developed exclusively by WBS, the EPSITEC External Wall Insulation System has been designed to satisfy the need for an insulated render system incorporating a drainage cavity, for use on lightweight steel or timber frame construction.
Lightweight steel and timber frame structures are extremely robust and can be assembled in a matter of weeks using factory production methods. Once the framework has been assembled, and has been clad with an external weather-grade building board, the EPSITEC system can be installed directly to these boards and packed out to remove unlevel areas.
This innovative technique offers many advantages compared to traditional masonry methods, including increased speed in construction and it also allows internal contractors to commence works much earlier in the building programme, resulting in reduced build time and associated cost savings.
Following NHBC Guidelines, the EPSITEC System has been designed to incorporate a drainage cavity between the board and the system allowing any moisture to naturally drain away.
Intumescent strips are also positioned at every floor level and party wall to control the spread of flame in a fire situation.
In addition, the systems allows for a wide range of insulants of varying thicknesses to be used to help meet or exceed current building regulations and U-value requirements and provide an efficient, cost effective system suitable for low, medium and high rise construction.
The system is finally completed via the use of a wide selection of coatings and textures, which gives the completed project a hard-wearing, attractive, weatherproof finish.
