Eco Smart External Insulation

External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS) is a composite cladding system comprised of suitable insulation and waterproof coating which is applied to all the external walls of a building.

Eco Smart External Insulation is the approved agent for Atlas-Aval Group building products in west of Ireland. Atlas is one of the biggest and most successful companies in the building supplies industry since 1990.

External insulation is the simplest and easiest way of thermally upgrading homes and buildings without massive disruption as all works can be carried out whilst the occupants are living in the properties.

Why ETICS

Below is a list of reason why you should use ETICS

  • €3600 SEAI grant for external wall insulation
  • Lowers heating cost up to 50%
  • Stops condensation
  • Stops draughts
  • No cold bridges
  • Stabilisation of interior environment
  • No Reduction in interior floor space
  • Helps prevent mould and fungus growth
  • Wall will act as thermal store (thermal mass)
  • More thermally efficient than any other wall system
  • U value of 0.15 W/m2K is easy achievable
  • Improved aesthetic finish
  • Weather-protecting finishes
  • Four types of renders and seven hundred finish colours
  • European Technical Approval ETA-06/0187
  • NSAI – Irish Agreement Board Certificate No. 10/0347
  • Reduced CO2 emissions

CHARACTERISTICS

ATLAS External Thermal Insulation Composite System (ETICS) with render coatings has been given European Technical Approval no. ETA-06/0081 issued in accordance with guidelines of European Technical Approvals ETA 004:2000 and NSAI-Irish Agrément Board Certificate No. 10/0347

The main objectives of the system are as follows:

  • Providing external walls with appropriate thermal insulation,
  • Increase durability of external walls by ensuring better protection from weather.

Thermal insulation made from polystyrene boards fixed to the external wall followed by reinforced layer and then render coating. ATLAS can be used only as an adhered system or as an adhered system with additional mechanical fixing.

The system can be applied on new or existing external surfaces of vertical walls (plastered or not) made from masonry such as bricks, blocks, stone, cellular concrete or concrete.

The system can also be fixed to horizontal surfaces other than roof. These may include ceilings over passages. Internal walls and roofs (on the ceilings side) of garages or cellars adjacent to heated rooms.

The substrate on which ATLAS will be used should have reaction to fire class: A1 or A2-s1 d0 according to EN 13501-1.

 

SYSTEM PROPERTIES

Specification of the system and its individual parts ensure that all technical, usable and utilisation requirements assumed for the intended use are met by correctly designed and constructed thermal insulation.

In respect of reaction to fire, ATLAS system has been classified according to EN 13501-1 as:B – s2,d0 for a system with polystyrene board not exceeding 250 mm thickness, finished with ATLAS CERMIT or ATLAS SILKON; C –s2,d0 for the system with polystyrene board not exceeding 250 mm thickness, finished with ATLAS CERMIT or ATLAS SILKON.

Water absorbability of the reinforced layer and individual layer and individual finishing layers specified after 24h in each variant does not exceed 0.5kg/m2; therefore, the system is resistant to freeze-thaw cycles. ATLAS system is also fully resistant to thermal-humid cycles. In relation to the impact strength, regardless of the arrangement of finishing layers (with one layer of glass fibre mesh), the system has been classified for III utilisation category.

If correctly installed, the system prevents surface and internal water vapour condensation. Diffusion resistance, expressed in equivalent thickness of air layer Sd for the least favourable arrangement of the finishing layer in the system (including a paint coating) is only 0.49 m. The manufacturer declares that adhesion between the reinforced layer and thermal insulation (EPS), and the adhesive and thermal insulation is no less than 0.1 MPa, where as between the adhesive and substrate (concrete) is no less than 0.6 MPa.

The manufacturer declares that adhesion between the reinforced layer and thermal insulation (EPS) and the adhesive and thermal insulation is no less than 0.1 MPa. Thermal resistance of the finishing layer of the system (the reinforced layer with the render coating) render is ca. 0.02 m2 K/W.
