EWI Pro’s most sustainable insulating material, the Wood Fibre insulation system offers porotherm brick substrates breathability and improved thermal performance. Wood Fibre is ideal for use on breathable Porotherm bricks as it is a vapour-open material; thereby complementing and working in harmony with the substrate as opposed to hindering its performance. The system is then finished with a breathable thin coat render, such as the EWI-075 Silicone Render, to achieve an aesthetically pleasing finish. When installed on a solid wall property, 120mm of Wood Fibre insulation can achieve a U-value of 0.30(W/m2k). Wood Fibre not only offers the advantage of reduced energy bills, but it’s also extremely environmentally friendly. Manufactured from waste timber shavings from sustainably managed forests, this product is ideal for the environmentally-conscious consumer.

Starter Track & Clip-on Profile
The starter track is attached to the substrate above the DPC. This provides a level surface for the insulation to sit on; it also protects the base of the insulation against damp.
The basecoat reinforcement layer consists of the EWI-225 Premium Adhesive, which is applied directly to the substrate. The adhesive is used to create a smooth surface before rendering.
Fibreglass reinforcing mesh is embedded within the basecoat adhesive to enhance the tensile strength and crack resistance of the render system.
The render primer is painted onto the reinforcement layer to ensure that the render adheres to the basecoat, and to contribute towards a durable render finish.
EWI Pro offer a range of coloured renders, all of which can enhance the external appearance of the property. Each render provides a long-lasting, crack-proof finish and come with a range of advantages for the building structure. We recommend choosing a breathable render for use with Wood Fibre insulation.
