Application

Suitable for use in refurbishment and new build projects. Can be used above 18 m in England and Wales, and above 11 m for Scotland to comply with appropriate Building Regulations.

Description

Render protected, mechanically fixed external wall insulation (EWI) system, based on mineral fibre (MF) insulation with a meshcloth reinforced basecoat, a top coat and a synthetic finish.

Features and benefits:

  • Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)/ hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) free.
  • Good impact resistance.
  • Provides weather protection.
  • Lightweight.
  • A wide range of finish coat colours are available.
  • Can be used for decorating and re-modelling existing facades.
  • BBA approved.
  • When installed to a masonry substrate and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations, the system will remain effective for at least 30 years. The durability can be extended to 60 years by using specific fixings, accessories, additional adhesive and by following a planned inspection and maintenance schedule. Consult manufacturer for details.

Applications:

Suitable for use in refurbishment and new build projects. Can be used above 18 m in England and Wales, and above 11 m for Scotland to comply with appropriate Building Regulations.

System components:

  • Weber fixings as specified for the substrate.
  • webertherm MFD insulation (of specified thickness).
  • weberend LAC (first layer, 3 mm).
  • weber standard meshcloth.
  • weberend LAC (second layer, 3 mm).
  • weber PR310 primer.
  • weberplast TF Silver Pearl.

The installation must be capable of resisting all dead loads and design live loads, including impact and wind loads, and accommodate all thermal movements without damage.

System installation is to be strictly in accordance with Saint-Gobain Weber specification. Please note that any other manufacturer's products used within the system will invalidate the guarantee, and the performance cannot be supported.

Remedial work must be completed prior to the installation of Weber EWI Systems.

Recommendations:

  • It is recommended for the contractors/ clients design team to ensure the system installed meets the building regulations requirements along with undertaking design liability for the building in its entirety including compliance with supplementary guidance such as BR 135. Weber external wall insulation systems incorporating mineral fibre insulation with a suitable fire tested finish (contact Weber for further details) achieve a reaction to fire classification of A2, s1, d0. Systems achieving this classification or better are considered suitable for use on, or at any distance from, a boundary without height restriction. In addition to the main wall fixings, appropriate fire fixings (stainless steel as per BRE 135) should also be installed at a rate of 1/m² minimum across the whole area receiving the system.
  • Fixings must penetrate the structure in accordance with the fixing design to provide the appropriate pull out resistance. A survey of the building must be completed by an engineer to ensure the additional load does not have a detrimental effect on the building and the fixings are able to sufficiently penetrate the structure, to adequately support the Weber system. Weber will undertake fixing pull out tests and verify the adequacy of the fixing design based on a wind loading assessment carried out in accordance with BS EN 1991-1-4: 2005.
