SMET feature EasylationWall EWI in Passive House Plus Irish edition issue 12

In this month’s edition of Passive House Plus magazine, page 32, Smet Building Products promote the latest in easy to use, industry-leading EWI, technology with EasylationWall.

Take a look into the latest edition of the latest edition of Passive HousePlus, the leading publication on eco upgrade and new builds…

EasylationWall is strong in innovation

EasylationWall is the latest in innovative, easy-to-use, stunning, industry-leading EWI technology based on brick slips, utilising natural stone or ceramics. EasylationWall is innovative in every aspect; from the method of installation, use of materials, the speed of application, to the achievable energy standards – all of which distinguish themselves from other systems. EasylationWall can be installed in new-builds and renovation projects and is also very suited to off-site construction systems such as timber-frame, steel-frame and prefab-concrete construction.

At a glance – 10 benefits of the EasylationWall system:

Any stone in any texture can be used – brick, natural stone or ceramic
Quick to assemble – easy to apply
High insulation value through use of XPS system
Dry construction method – not weather dependent
No cold bridges and moisture-regulating
Thermal insulation and acoustic solution in one system
Applicable sustainably, 99% recyclable
Low cost due to light construction method
Stronger grout joint
10 year product guarantee

Exceptional energy efficiency in EasylationWall EWI using XPS

EasylationWall has been fully equipped to meet challenges in reducing energy with its superior thermal insulation properties. In fact, even greater energy efficiency can be achieved because applications may be up to 300 mm insulation thickness. For example, using a 140 mm insulation board onto a single leaf wall construction and a brick slip – a U-value of 0.2 W/m²K is reached. However, using a 200 mm insulation board achieves a U-value of 0.15 W/m²K. Ultimately, utilising a 300 mm insulation board – a U-value of 0.11 W/m²K is achievable.
EasylationWall delivers high insulation values through use of an XPS system. The materials are made of extruded polystyrene hard foam. The high density insulation boards have a high thermal resistance and excellent impact resistance, delivering extremely durable end results. Due to the sealed cell structure, the system is damp proof and offers many unique characteristics. EasylationWall is therefore also a perfect solution to challenges in the areas of artistic design combined with thermal insulation.
