Insulated Façade System

Description

The Insulated Façade System is a cavity-based exterior insulation and finishing system (EIFS) wall cladding. It is an external wall cladding system for residential and light commercial type buildings where domestic construction techniques are used.

The system consists of Graphex (Neopor®), expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS) or polyisocyanurate (PIR) sheets fixed over battens to form the cavity. The plaster coating system consists of 5 mm thickness of fibreglass mesh reinforced, polymer-modified, cement-based plaster, which is finished with a cement-based finishing plaster that is then painted with a 100% acrylic-based paint system. The chosen finishing plaster is applied to give a range of different appearances, such as a sponge, patterned, adobe or spray textured finish.

The system incorporates Resene Construction Systems EdgeSeal joinery flashings. It also incorporates a primary and secondary means of weather resistance (first and second line of defence) against water penetration by separating the cladding from the external wall framing with a nominal 20 mm drained cavity.

Scope

The Insulated Façade System has been appraised as an external wall cladding system for buildings within the following scope:

  • The scope limitations of NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1 paragraph 1.1.
  • With a risk score of 0-20 calculated in accordance with NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1 Table 2.
  • Situated in NZS 3604 wind zones up to and including extra high.

The Insulated Façade System has also been appraised for weathertightness and structural wind loading when used as an external wall cladding system for buildings within the following scope:

  • The scope limitations of NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1 paragraph 1.1.
  • Constructed with timber and steel framing subject to specific engineering design.
  • Situated in specific design wind pressures up to a maximum design differential ultimate limit state (ULS) of 2.5 kPa.

The Insulated Façade System must only be installed on vertical surfaces (except for tops of parapets, sills and balustrades, which must have a minimum 10° slope and be waterproofed in accordance with the technical literature).

The system is appraised for use with aluminium window and door joinery that is installed with vertical jambs and horizontal heads and sills. (The Appraisal of the Insulated Façade System relies on the joinery meeting the requirements of NZS 4211 for the relevant wind zone or wind pressure.)

Installation of components and accessories supplied by Resene Construction Systems and its approved applicators must be carried out only by Resene Construction Systems approved applicators.
