ATLAS RENOTER thermal insulation technology consists in installation of additional outer thermal insulation layer upon the existing external wall insulation. System consists of polystyrene thermal insulation, base coat made of adhesive and reinforcing mesh, rendering coat and decorative paint coat (optional). Polystyrene boards are fixed with adhesive mortar and mechanical fixings. The use of mechanical fixings is obligatory regardless the building height.
ATLAS RENOTER system is fixed mechanically, i.e. loads are fully transmitted by mechanical anchors and adhesive mortar provides flat bonding of system to substrate (works as an assembly mortar). The construction material layer of the building outer wall, not the existing layer of thermal insulation, should always be treated as the system substrate. Therefore, fixings should go through all layers of the existing insulation. This fact should be taken into account during designing and selection of mechanical fixings.
