Best practice guide for external wall insulation

INCA has published comprehensive guidance on the installation of EWI

Posted by Stephanie Broad | July 29, 2015 | Facilities management

A new guide on external wall insulation (EWI) is designed to ensure that EWI systems are fit for purpose and installed to a high standard.

The guide, which has been endorsed by the European Association for External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (EAE), sets out an accepted minimum standard for installations, standardises common details that occur on site, and provides useful information on the components that make up a finished system.

It will help the industry ensure that EWI systems are installed to the required standard to provide a thermal upgrade, be aesthetically pleasing and achieve the design life they have been assessed for. The guide can also help to inform the industry’s clients, including architects, main contractors and local authorities, about the correct choice of system for their projects. 

INCA members apply the latest skills, innovations and techniques to deliver high quality new build and refurbishment projects in the non-residential and domestic sectors and this new guide from INCA will help to raise quality standards across the EWI industry. 

INCA Chairman, Pádraig Barry, said: “The INCA Best Practice Guide for EWI is an essential resource for everyone involved in EWI and represents a huge step forward at a time when the quality of solid wall insulation installations are under the microscope. 

The publication of this guide reinforces that INCA members are leading the way in EWI innovation and remain uniquely placed to deliver the highest quality for clients.”
