Swistherm EWI: New Build  

 

  • A BBA approved, fully warranted system with an effective life in excess of 30 years
  • Swistherm is fully weather resistant whilst remaining vapour permeable and allows the fabric of the building to act as a heat store, increasing thermal efficiency
  • The system eliminates cold bridging, condensation and mould growth and protects the structural fabric, limiting movement and thermal shock and freeze-thaw cycles associated with traditional brickwork façades
  • The Swistherm EWI system is highly resistant to impact damage, is rated Class 0 for surface spread of flame and contributes to sound reduction within the external wall construction

Applications
