Exterior Insulation

An Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS) can be defined as an energy efficient thermal wrapping applied to the exterior surfaces of a building. This thermal wrapping is then finished with a long-life, decorative and protective coating system.

Due to the technical nature if EIFS, ETICS, EWI systems, Terraco has created a dedicated EIFS website. Read more on Terraco EIFS.

Terraco EIFS has been developed, tried and tested for use in both hot and cold climates and is proven to substantially reduce heating or cooling costs as well as allow for the use of lower specification heating or cooling systems.

As part of the EIFS System Components are the adhesives, applied between the substrate and the insulation board to secure the board to the wall, and the basecoats, for embedding the Terramesh™ Glass Fibre Reinforcing Mesh. Read more on EIFS System Components.
