The ‘better living system’ is a timber frame build, comprised of sheepwool insulation, laid between timber battens on top of an OSB board. Mineral Wool is then secured to the timber battens and then finished with a breathable render.
Sheep Wool Insulation
Sheep Wool insulation is a completely natural and environmentally friendly material, complementing the theme of this system. Choosing natural materials for timber frames ensures that the building structure is supported in the long term.
Mineral Wool Insulation
Mineral Wool insulation easily upgrades the thermal properties of the building, ensuring a reduction in thermal transfer and class A1 fire resistance. Mineral Wool is vapour permeable and also offers acoustic insulating capabilities.
Mechanical fixings are used as the primary method of securing the insulation to the substrate. Metal fixings should be used when fixing Mineral Wool.
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.
