Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) are multi-layered exterior wall systems that are used on commercial buildings and homes. They provide superior energy efficiency and offer much greater design flexibility than other cladding products. Not only do EIFS come in limitless colors and a wide variety of textures, but they can also be fashioned into virtually any shape or design.
The optimum solution for any external wall thermal insulation is a seamless thermal insulation system – EIFS which has been applied for many years. Within EIFS, a thermal insulation material such as EPS-boards or Rockwool is fixed to the outside wall with a special adhesive mortar, then the surface is reinforced with a glass fiber mesh and finally coated with a decorative plaster.
Benefits of EIFS:
- Energy Efficiency and Energy Codes
- Design Flexibility/Aesthetics
- Moisture Control
- Fire Testing
