Wall Build-Ups

EWI Pro systems are built to last, offering a range of external wall solutions for improving thermal comfort and external appearance. The following are some typical external wall insulation systems using EWI Pro materials. As demonstrated, our systems are highly versatile and can be used to create numerous external wall insulation systems for a range of properties and substrates.

Substrate Preparation

The substrate must be clean, dry and dust-free. A render carrier board joint tape must be used to secure all joints.

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.

Adhesive

The insulation is fixed to the substrate using either the EWI-210 EPS Adhesive EWI-220 EPS Basecoat. These are the ideal adhesives for use with EPS insulation, offering a long-lasting and secure adhesion. The adhesive is applied to the back of the insulation boards which are then secured to the wall.

EPS Insulation

EPS insulation easily upgrades the thermal properties of the building, ensuring a reduction in thermal transfer. EPS is cost effective and is an ideal solution for brick substrates.

Mechanical Fixings

Mechanical fixings are used as a secondary method of securing the insulation to the substrate. Plastic fixings should be used for EPS insulation.

Basecoat

The basecoat reinforcement layer is applied to the surface of the insulation boards and consists of either the EWI-220 EPS Basecoat or the EWI-225 Premium Basecoat. The reinforcement layer creates a smooth surface before applying the render.

Fibreglass Mesh

Fibreglass reinforcing mesh is embedded within the basecoat adhesive to enhance the tensile strength and crack resistance of the render system.

Render Primer

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.

Decorative 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.

Ventilated Systems Stainless Steel - EPS System

The stainless steel construction EPS system offers superior thermal capabilities. EPS insulation can easily update the thermal performance of a substrate, including sheathing board substrates on stainless steel buildings. Use the EPS Basecoat Adhesive and wood screws with Universal Fixing Discs to secure the insulation to the substrate for a highly durable system, then finish off with a thin coat coloured render system.
