An external wall insulation system is a thermally insulated, protective, decorative exterior cladding procedure involving the use of expanded polystyrene, mineral wool, polyurethane foam or phenolic foam, topped off with a reinforced cement based, mineral or synthetic finish and plaster.
Rendering and External wall insulation
Our insulation systems are often referred to as ‘thermal render’ or ‘external wall insulation.’ This type of system is made up of physical insulation boards, such as EPS, which are secured to the external wall with adhesive and mechanical fixings, before render is applied on top to achieve a decorative finish. Thermal render, on the other hand, is an actual render product with low thermal conductivity. This is often specified on the package, for example, our Lightweight Basecoat has a thermal conductivity value of 0.47(W/mK). This essentially means that the basecoat itself will help to slow down the rate of heat transfer. This means that less of the heat from inside your home will be able to escape.
