KABE THERM ELASTO EWI system is a system of insulating external walls of buildings based on EPS with high resistance to mechanical damage (impact resistance). It is applied in single- and multi-family housing construction industry,
public utility and industrial buildings, both in new build and existing (retrofit) building walls to the height of up to 25 m (for the buildings erected before 1 April 1995 to the height of eleventh story inclusively). Especially recommended in places requiring increased impact resistance and attractive decorative effects. The system can be applied on walls made of masonry elements (such as e.g.: bricks, blocks, stone etc.) or from concrete (poured on site or in the form of prefabricated panels). 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 by using structural ARMASIL T silicone render or PERMURO, PERMURO AVANT acrylic renders, available in a wide range of colours and textures. In addition, in this system, it’s possible to perform decorative effects of brick and architectural concrete.

• Reduction of heating costs
• Interior micro-climate improvement
• Increased impact resistance (class I)
• Attractive decorative effects and high aesthetics of the facade
• Protection of walls against the impact of adverse atmospheric conditions
• Anti-fungal and algae protection
• Option to use facade paints available in a wide range of colours
