SPSenvirowall is bringing a new Cavity External Wall Insulation System to market that not only provides the aesthetic appeal that architects and specifiers want, but also delivers significant benefits in lightweight construction with building regulation compliance for buildings up to and over 18 metres with an extensive range of brick and render finishes.
Experts and leading external wall insulation and facades supplier, SPSenvirowall has announced its latest fully tested and accredited addition to its expanding range of innovative systems – The Cavity System.
Extensively used on lightweight structures, cavity systems create a drainage void between the cladding and the sheathed framed structure. SPSenvirowall Cavity Systems 1 & 2 are the next generation of this solution.
The speed at which the LSF and insulated cladding can be erected and weatherproofed, provides extensive benefits to developers, often removing the cladding from the critical path, bringing forward the internal trades and thereby shortening the contract period, thus eliminating the problems associated with brick and blockwork construction.
This modern method of construction has proven extremely popular over recent years and dominates the build method used for mid to high rise structures, which is an ideal scenario to specify and install the new SPSenvirowall Cavity Systems.
The SPSenvirowall Cavity Systems consist of EuroClass A1 components, which are mechanically fixed back to the inner sheathing board to create the designed cavity width, with either the insulation board fitted directly to the A1 fillets (CS1 system) or a secondary A1 sheathing board and insulation (CS2 system).
A proprietary base coat render is applied to the mineral wool insulation boards with a reinforcing plastic-coated glass fibre mesh prior to the application of the required finishes.
The Cavity Systems benefit from a KIWA BDA certification and is accepted by leading building warranty and insurance providers. In addition, the new system from SPSenvirowall is compliant with approved document B and Technical Handbook section 2 and has a minimum EuroClass Reaction to Fire classification of A2 –s1, d0. With an A rated fire classification, the Cavity System meets the requirements of the building regulations for buildings over 18 meters in height.
The system can accommodate a range of finishes, including SPSenvirowall high performance textured finishes – Silicone, FlexiSil and Enviromin as well as brick effect facades – SpeedySlip and BrickStick, offering the traditional appearance of brick which is extremely durable and lightweight.
