What Is RendeX® External Cladding System?
While giving an appearance of a rendered brick wall, RendeX® External Cladding System is actually a multi-layered wall system that consists of the following components:
Made of polystyrene, coated with polymer modified render and alkaline resistant fiberglass mesh, mechanically secured to the exterior wall surface.
Two coats of base coat render 3-5mm thick is applied to the entire wall area.
Applied on top of the base coat giving a durable, crack-resistant finish.
All coatings to be applied according render manufacturer's instructions.
Superior energy efficiency
Great design flexibility
Quick and easy to install
Strong and durable
The growing popularity of RendeX® External Cladding System is due to the fact that few, if any, competitive materials offer such a wide range of desirable product benefits. Chief among these are superior energy efficiency and virtually unlimited design flexibility.
If you`ve ever felt the comfort of being wrapped in a warm blanket on a cold winter night, you have some idea of what FoamPanel can do for a home or building.
RendeX® External Cladding System literally wrap the exterior in an energy-efficient thermal blanket. By insulating outside the structure, EIFS reduce air infiltration, stabilize the interior environment and reduce energy consumption.
In fact, RendeX® External Cladding System can reduce air infiltration by as much as 55% compared to standard brick or wood construction. And since walls are one of the greatest areas of heat and air conditioning loss, improvement in the wall insulation can be very meaningful in terms of energy conservation.
What`s more, RendeX® External Cladding System add to the "R-value" of a home or building. Prestige Wall Systems use M-grade polistyrene with an R-value for 75mm thick board of R-1.8. It is possible to achiev R-value of R - 4 when standard wall cavity insulation is combined with PWS FoamPanel.
Another point to keep in mind on new construction: Due to the energy efficiency of RendeX® External Cladding System, it may be possible to specify lower-capacity heating and air conditioning equipment without sacrificing anything in terms of interior comfort.
The rich appearance of RendeX® External Cladding System bears a resemblance to rendered brick wall, but the system is far more versatile than brick and other materials. Not only do PWS FoamPanel come in virtually limitless colors and a wide variety of textures, but they also can be fashioned into virtually any shape or design.
With RendeX® External Cladding System, PWS architectural mouldings and skilled applicators you can create all sorts of exterior architectural detailing that would often be cost-prohibitive using conventional construction.
All of this detailing is computer-generated. The designs are precision-cut out of polystyrene block, and then covered with mesh and polymerrender in factory condition, insuring the accuracy and quality control, delivered to site and installed by the skilled installer.
Using this ingenious process, RendeX® External Cladding System applicators can give a striking, distinctive appearance to any building or residence.
