EWI Pro Wood Fibre insulation system is ideal for use on SIPS Panels as they offer unequaled breathability and vapour permeability. The result is excellent thermal performance due to the system’s seamless thermal envelope, and a decreased risk of water vapour build-up. The insulation boards are secured to the substrate using Metal Pin Mechanical Fixings and our Premium Basecoat, then finished off using a decorative and breathable thin coat render system.

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 is applied to the insulation boards and consists of the EWI-225 Premium Adhesive. The reinforcement layer creates a smooth surface before applying the render.
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.
