External wall insulation (EWI) system with silicone, silicate-silicone and acrylic external render and decorative coatings with a smooth texture

The KABE THERM AVANT EWI system is an EPS-based thermal insulation system for external walls. It is applied in single- and multi-family housing construction industry, public utility and industrial buildings – in both the existing and new constructions – to the height of up to 25 m (for the buildings erected before 1 April 1995 to the height of eleventh story, inclusive). It is especially recommended for projects, where costs and a smooth decorative texture are important. The system can be used on walls made of masonry components (e.g., bricks, blocks, stone, etc.) or concrete (poured on site or in the form of prefabricated slabs). The system can be used on new walls, as well as for renovation of the existing ones. It is also possible to use it on horizontal or inclined surfaces, that are not exposed to precipitation. The external system layer can be made using SILCO T AVANT structural silicone render, SiSi AVANT structural silicate-silicone render or PERMURO AVANT acrylic render, available in a wide range of colours. In addition, it is possible to make a top coat with a smooth texture in the system with PERMURO-DECOR SMOOTH TEXTURE, NOVALIT T-DECOR SMOOTH TEXTURE, MINERALIT T-DECOR SMOOTH TEXTURE and MINERALIT T / NOVALIT T MODELLED-DECOR SMOOTH TEXTURE.

• Reduction of building heating costs
• Improved microclimate inside the building
• Attractive decorative effects and high aesthetics of the façade
• Wall protection against adverse weather conditions
• Protection against the growth of algae and fungi
• Optional use of façade paints available in a wide range of colours
