Swisspan EWI: Structural  

 

  • A BBA approved, fully warranted system with an effective life in excess of 30 years
  • Swisspan’s integrated rail system provides secure fixing and load transfer to underlying structure
  • The system is fully weather resistant whilst remaining vapour permeable and allows the fabric of the building to act as a heat store, increasing thermal efficiency
  • Swisspan eliminates cold bridging, condensation and mould growth and protects the structural fabric of the building.  It is highly resistant to impact damage, rated Class 0 for surface spread of flame and contributes to sound reduction within the external wall construction

Applications

  • Primarily suited to building refurbishment where structure does not provide continuous support for insulation. Typically used on 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.
  • Buildings up to 4 Storeys – suited for unrestricted use

Insulation

  • Insulation is mechanically fixed to a galvanised steel horizontal support rail system that spans between structural columns. A choice of insulation thicknesses and materials are available, achieving very low U-values
  • Swisspan insulation options include Phenolic, PIR, Expanded Polystyrene and Cork.

Renders, Finishes & Brick Slips

  • M.R. traditional render options include M.R. Polymer Dashing Render, M.R. Polymer Plain Render and M.R. Rendabrick simulated brick finish. Contemporary renders include ST Silkolitt Silicone Render and ST Mineral K Mineral Render, available with a rolled surface texture, in a wide range of colours.
  • Brick slip options include Alumasc’s Traditional Brick Slips and Acrylic Brick Slips.

Installation & Maintenance

  • Swisspan is installed by a national network of Alumasc registered specialist contractors
  • The system requires minimal routine maintenance
