External Wall Insulation

External Wall Insulation

External Wall Insulation for New Buildings

Architects and designers are always looking at new and effective ways of improving thermal performance whilst reducing CO2 emissions in buildings - PermaRock external wall insulation provides the solution.

PermaRock external wall insulation systems are developed, tested and accredited for use on conventional and modern new build constructions and provide the designer with an extensive range of decorative effects to create unique, innovative and exciting architecture.

Our portfolio of high quality render protected external wall insulation systems meet all of the requirements for modern cladding products taking into consideration areas of concern such as fire & thermal performance, environmental impact, air-tightness, impact resistance and aesthetic choice to ensure there is a PermaRock system that can be specified to meet even the most demanding project requirements.

Systems are suitable for use on all types of substrates, including blockwork, single skin masonry, timber frame, lightweight metal frame (either as infill panels to concrete or steel framed constructions) and structural building systems.

They are also suited for all types of developments, high and low rise, in urban or rural locations, in sheltered or exposed situations and for new and off-site construction.

Technical Director at PermaRock Products Ltd, Dr Jeremy Richings explains, “Now that all government construction projects in the UK are required to be delivered within a BIM environment, PermaRock wanted to invest in creating BIM objects to enable it to stay ahead of the game.”

Dr Richings summed up the initiative by saying, “Public sector construction contracts such as schools and healthcare schemes form a substantial part of our business. Consequently PermaRock wanted to ensure that when a project is being developed and specified, the project designers and contractors engaged in delivering the project are able to access all the technical information relating to our products and can specify them with ease and confidence. Furthermore, as BIM has gained a foothold outside of central government, an increasing number of designers are engaging in the collaborative working process that BIM affords and we see the adoption of BIM as a way of driving up quality as well as reducing time, waste and duplication.”

PermaRock is one of the UK’s leading external wall insulation exterior render system suppliers and the company’s extensive experience includes working with local authorities, housing association registered providers, architects and contractors on refurbishment and new build projects across the UK.
