An NHBC compliant, fully warranted system with an effective life in excess of 30 years
The Swisrail system incorporates a drained cavity via a support frame to give full NHBC compliance. A cavity is provided to prevent moisture penetrating to the 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
Swisrail eliminates cold bridging, condensation and mould growth and protects the structural fabric of the building and is resistant to impact damage. It is rated Class 0 for surface spread of flame and contributes to sound reduction within the external wall construction
Primarily suited to new-build construction types - NHBC compliant, tailored to lightweight frame construction
Buildings up to 6 Storeys – suited for unrestricted use; High Rise - suitable subject to Alumasc’s high rise policy
A choice of insulation thicknesses and materials are available, achieving very low U-values
Vertical steel support rails provide a 25mm gap between insulation and structure
Swisrail insulation options include Mineral Wool, Expanded Polystyrene and Cork
Renders, Finishes & Brick Slips
