Exterior Insulation and Finishing System (EIFS) is a type of building exterior wall cladding system that provides exterior walls with an insulated finished surface and waterproofing in an integrated composite material system. EIFS is a lightweight synthetic wall cladding that includes foam plastic insulation and thin synthetic.
Class PB EIFS has been the workhorse of the industry for many years. It is designed for all types of construction; new or retrofit, low rise and high rise. It is made up of an adhesive base coat, insulation board, base coat, reinforcing mesh, and finish coat. It can be used over several substrates including Den Glass Gold, Masonry, Concrete, and Cement Board. With special adhesives, the system can also be used over plywood substrates.
Secondary Weather Barrier EIFS is used when an air barrier, increased moisture protection and redundancy are required. This provides all the benefits of the classic PB System with an added level of protection to the sheathing and cavity against moisture and air infiltration. A trowel or roller applied secondary weather barrier is applied to the sheathing and all the openings are sealed with a compatible fabric faced flashing. This system provides extra protection while sustaining all pertinent wind load requirements.
‘Drainage Channel Adhesive Design‘ is used when a ‘rainscreen’ feature or moisture drainage wall system is required. The Drainage System adds flashing and weeps to the Secondary Weather Barrier System thus providing a way of drainage for any incidental moisture.
