The system is designed for installation of the external wall insulation of buildings - it may be used both on the rendered/plastered facades and rough walls made of bricks and blocks (ceramic, cement-lime, stone, of aerated concrete and concrete – monolithic or precast).
For thermal insulation with the use of standard or elasticized polystyrene (EPS) - the thermal insulation thickness is even up to 250 mm.
For installation of the thermal insulation of the buildings up to 25 m high.
It can be fixed to the surfaces of horizontal or inclined building elements – provided that they are not directly exposed to weather conditions.
Recommended for thermal insulation works in the traditional constructions, energy- saving and passive ones.

Polystyrene boards (EPS) described by a code which constitutes a combination of the following symbols: T2 (thickness); L1 or L2 (length); W2 (width); S1 or S2 (rectangularity); DS(N)2; DS(70,-)1 or DS(70,-)2, BS(75), TR80 (elasticized polystyrene) or TR100 (standard polystyrene)
Insulation fixing – additional
Authorized mechanical fixings, holding the European Technical Approval (ETA) issued in accordance with ETAG 014.
If the building is lower than 12 m and the polystyrene thickness does not exceed 15 cm the mechanical fixings are not obligatory.

Work conditionsCarry out the work in dry weather, at the substrate and ambient temperature not lower than +5 °C and not higher than +30 °C. The only exception is the ATLAS STOPTER K-20 adhesive, which can also be used at 0 ° C, assuming that after 8 hours from the work completion the temperature does not drop below -5 ° C. The facade should be on time of thermal insulation work protected and secured against precipitation, strong wind and direct sunlight - it is recommended to use fine mesh scaffolding covers. Insulation works should be carried out in dry conditions (no precipitation, relative humidity below 80%).
The insulation should be commenced with the installation of the starter tracks. They support the first row of thermal insulation boards, facilitate to maintain the uniform level of successive layers, strengthen the bottom edge of the system, and the bottom edge drip prevents water bleeding. The boards should be installed horizontally on the plinth of the building, not lower than 30 cm above the ground level, which provides protection from the effects of rising damp and protects against dirt - mud particles brought by raindrops reflected from the ground. Instead of skirting boards, it is permitted to use strips of armour mesh or two layers of fiberglass mesh.
The above information constitutes basic guidelines for the application of the product and does not release the user from the obligation of carrying out works according to engineering principles and OHS regulations.
