  • Excellent thermal performance
  • Fire resistance – classified Class O as defined in Building Regulations
  • Improved acoustic performance
  • No risk of condensation as dew point occurs on the outside of the system
  • Thermally efficient, fire-resistant and environmentally friendly systems
  • Extensive range of decorative finishes and effects available
  • Unlimited colour choice
  • Suitable for both low rise and high rise developments
  • Company and insurance-backed guarantees

Years of experience have enabled us to develop relationships with all the major system designers and manufacturers so we can offer a full range according to your specification.

System built housing played an important part in the regeneration of the post-war property market in the UK. However, after several decades, many of these properties desperately need improvement both aesthetically and in terms of thermal performance. External wall insulation provides bespoke solutions for housing types such as Airey, BISF, Reema and Cornish. It allows these properties to achieve excellent levels of energy efficiency whilst dramatically improving their appearance and more importantly, extending their life way beyond their design expectations.

InBuild works closely with external wall insulation designers and manufacturers, and with structural engineers, to produce practical and affordable solutions for system built houses.

Rainscreen cladding is a unique method of cladding a building to provide weather protection and a completely flat, rigid surface. This seamless solution is ideal for old and new commercial and prestige buildings.

The Rainscreen cladding system is fixed to an exterior wall with an adjustable aluminium sub-construction. This creates a cavity between the facade and the render carrier board which is part-filled with mineral fibre insulation for effective external wall insulation.

The cavity allows a continuous exchange of air, substantially facilitating the discharge of moisture. As a ventilated façade insulation system, it offers particular advantages in indoor applications involving high levels of moisture such as swimming pools and breweries.

The adjustable sub-construction allows variable spacing between the wall and the render carrier board which levels out unevenness and irregularities in the existing structure, leaving a flat surface. Fixation problems are virtually unheard of, even on moist, cracked walls or unstable old plaster.

Features & Benefits:

  • Suitable for all wall structures including masonry (concrete, brick, sand-lime block, porous concrete) and timber.
  • Suitable for curved surfaces.
  • Suitable for new build and renovation projects.
  • Weather resistant.
  • Shock proof.
  • Crack resistant.
  • Rapid installation.
  • High level of sound protection.
  • Virtually any colour.
  • Diverse range of surface finishes.

Case Study: External wall insulation to BISF houses in Southend

The objective of the ReallySmartHouse scheme in Southend-on-Sea was to improve the energy efficiency of council homes. It was jointly funded by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for the Eastern Region.

InBuild insulated a number of British Iron & Steel Federation Houses (BISF) as part of the project. External wall insulation was applied with a reinforcing steel cage to give the properties added stability and to lengthen their lifespan. There were also ten under-insulated bungalows in Southend that were transformed into highly efficient ‘Smart Homes’. The construction of the bungalows meant that there were high levels of heat loss, but installing external wall insulation significantly improved their thermal efficiency.

External Wall Insulation
for Pampered Cats

Andrea and Andy, together with mum Brenda, opened the Lilliput Cattery in Wickford in 1990. The cattery was purpose-built with concrete blocks and render. There is no gas supply so electric heat pads were used originally in the cages, but these were soon replaced with electric storage heaters.
