Architects specify external wall insulation not only to enhance a facade but to protect and insulate a building at the same time.

ETICS (external thermal insulation composite systems) can be used on masonry, timber and steel constructions and can be either mechanically fixed or bonded, whichever is most suitable for the type of construction.

Fassatherm by Fassa Bortolo is the complete ETIC system with three types of insulation panel to suit the budget and needs of a project:

Fassatherm Classic fulfils the needs of most sites.  It uses EPS/GEPS panels which are safe and easy to work with, to provide reliable, efficient protection against heat and cold.

Fassatherm Plus is for those buildings that need both thermal and sound insulation. The panels are made of Rockwool and Rockwool Lamella impregnated with resin and are fireproof and breathable. 

Fassatherm Eco uses cork panels to provide an environmentally friendly, breathable insulation layer.

These panels are complemented by a vast selection of adhesives, base coats, accessories and coatings of various colours from the Fassa Bortolo Colour System. 

The range has BBA certification for EPS and mineral wool to masonry substrates, as well as European Technical Approvals ETA 07/0280 and ETA 09/0282.  It conforms to all of the European Union standards for VOC emissions. 

Fassabortolo also offers a CPD presentation on external wall insulation.
