Swisspan External Wall Insulation

The Swisspan System supplied by

Swisspan External Wall Insulation

Swisspan is an insulated render system used to overclad existing properties where the possibilities for mechanical fixing are restricted to structural elements, typically structural frames with non load-bearing steel or concrete infill panels and non-traditional house types such as Airey Duo Slab, BISF, Cornish, Crudens and Unity. Insulation materials are mechanically fixed to a galvanised steel horizontal support rail system that spans between structural columns, and are then faced with a choice of M.R. Polymer modified renders.

Applications

  • Refurbishment – where structure does not provide continuous support for insulation
  • Construction Types Primarily suited to refurbishment applications
  • Ideal for problematic substrates or uneven remodelling applications
  • Buildings up to 4 Storeys are suited for unrestricted use

Performance

  • BBA approved, fully warranted system with life expectancy in excess of 30 years
  • Fully weather resistant whilst remaining vapour permeable
  • Integrated rail system provides secure fixing and load transfer to underlying structure
  • Allows the fabric of the building to act as a heat store, increasing thermal efficiency
  • Eliminates cold bridging, condensation and mould growth
  • Reduces heating costs and carbon dioxide emissions
  • Protects structural fabric, limiting movement and thermal shock and freeze-thaw cycles associated with traditional brickwork facades
  • Highly resistant to impact damage
  • Rated Class 0 for surface spread of flame
  • Contributes to sound reduction within external wall construction

Insulation & Finishes

  • Choice of insulation thicknesses and materials, achieving very low U-values
  • Insulation fixed between horizontal steel support rails, mechanically fixed to structure
  • Polymer modified render finishes include Plain, Spar Dashed and Brick Effect

Installation & Maintenance

  • Installed by approved specialist contractors
  • Requires minimal routine maintenance
