A BBA approved, fully warranted system with an effective life in excess of 30 years
Swisspan’s integrated rail system provides secure fixing and load transfer to underlying structure
The system is fully weather resistant whilst remaining vapour permeable and allows the fabric of the building to act as a heat store, increasing thermal efficiency
Swisspan eliminates cold bridging, condensation and mould growth and protects the structural fabric of the building. It is highly resistant to impact damage, rated Class 0 for surface spread of flame and contributes to sound reduction within the external wall construction
Primarily suited to building refurbishment where structure does not provide continuous support for insulation. Typically used on structural frames with non load-bearing steel or concrete infill panels and non-traditional house types such as Airey Duo Slab, BISF, Cornish, Crudens and Unity.
Buildings up to 4 Storeys – suited for unrestricted use
Insulation is mechanically fixed to a galvanised steel horizontal support rail system that spans between structural columns. A choice of insulation thicknesses and materials are available, achieving very low U-values
Swisspan insulation options include Phenolic, PIR, Expanded Polystyrene and Cork.
Renders, Finishes & Brick Slips
M.R. traditional render options include M.R. Polymer Dashing Render, M.R. Polymer Plain Render and M.R. Rendabrick simulated brick finish. Contemporary renders include ST Silkolitt Silicone Render and ST Mineral K Mineral Render, available with a rolled surface texture, in a wide range of colours.
Brick slip options include Alumasc’s Traditional Brick Slips and Acrylic Brick Slips.
Installation & Maintenance
Swisspan is installed by a national network of Alumasc registered specialist contractors
The system requires minimal routine maintenance
