Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS)
EIFS is a non-load bearing, cladding system which consists several layers. It contains a membrane process, a liquid applied weather and water resistant barrier, an insulation board (insulation foam etc.) attached adhesively or mechanically to the underlying layer, a basecoat reinforced with glass-fibre reinforced mesh, and a textured protective finish coat of client’s choosing.
EIFS provides high-performance energy efficient buildings. Due to continuous application of air and water barriers, it has a high R-value. It easily controls the air, heat and moisture flow of the building and virtually eliminates the thermal bridging through exterior walls resulting in you saving more money.
84% more efficient than common claddings
EIFS provides sustainable buildings because of its superior system. It is lighter than common cladding systems, this allows in huge savings in structural materials. It also reduces and minimizes the repair costs in case of a damage.
Over 50 years of service life
The EPS insulation board that is used in the EIFS system can be grooved, rasped, moulded and shaped into almost infinite amount of design styles. Various moulding designs can be applied directly onto the insulation boards before the final layers, resulting in dramatic increase in buildings’ aesthetic value.
endless design possibilities
With the combination of flashings for water drainage, insulation board’s drainage systems, membrane around the windows frames and flashings and most of all, water and air barrier applications, EIFS controls moisture and water like no other wall systems.
NO WATER-MOISTURE DAMAGE
