Saint-Gobain Weber, the UK formulator and manufacturer of innovative, high performance materials in the façades, exterior wall insulation, concrete repair, tile fixing and flooring systems, announces the replacement British Board of Agrément certification for the weber.therm XM External Wall Insulation (EWI) system. The updated certification applies to new build and refurbishment projects, encompassing various types of construction methods; low rise, traditional or non-traditional construction, or high- rise multi-occupancy buildings. Saint-Gobain Weber’s high performance EWI systems are designed for the thermal improvement of hard-to-treat properties and aesthetic external upgrade.
“The updated BBA certification is easier to understand,” says James Mead, head of product management, Saint-Gobain Weber, “and offers our customers security and peace-of-mind in a system which has been independently and comprehensively reassessed by the leading authority in product and system approvals, from technical specification through to installation.”
The certificate, number 91/2691, covers all main types of insulation boards in a range of thicknesses, including the recently introduced super-efficient lower lambda grey EPS boards, and all varieties of low maintenance, decorative finishes including dry dash, synthetic renders in a wide palette of colours, and scraped render.
In assessing weber.therm XM EWI, the BBA has tested the system for thermal performance, strength and stability, behaviour to fire, condensation and the design life of the system, which is a minimum of 30 years. The weber.them XM EWI system has been BBA certificated for 21 years, is fully compliant with current Building Regulations’ and is Energy Saving Trust accredited.
