The SPSenvirowall range of systems has had a successful track record in the UK and continental Europe for over 30 years. They have been used in some of the most exposed sites in Europe without any recorded failures. The systems have undergone a rigorous testing regime in both the UK and Germany with an expected life in excess of 50 years if properly maintained.
The SPSenvirowall range of systems have been rigorously tested to German standards. Germany is the largest market for external wall insulation with approximately 30 million square metres being installed annually. Therefore the range of testing facilities in Germany are far greater than that found in the UK. The SPSenvirowall range of systems has been assessed by the German Institute of Construction Engineering and has been approved as meeting all the requirements of the German Regional Building Regulations The individual component parts to the systems have also been independently tested to the Relevant DIN Standard.
Mineral wool insulation have been manufactured in accordance with DIN 18 165-1. Polystyrene insulation have been manufactured in accordance with DIN 18 164-1.
The system meets all the requirements of the German building inspectorate in accordance with DIN 4108-3. The use of external wall insulations is much more widely used in continental Europe than it is in the UK and therefore the German testing regime and the requirements of the German building regulations are much more stringent than in the UK. Despite this some quarters of the UK construction industry request British Board of Agrement Approval. Therefore SPSenvirowall systems have undergone a complete and successful assessment by the BBA (No 05/4206). Copies of the agrement certificate can be obtained by contacting our offices.
The SPSenvirowall range of systems have undergone a process that verifies that they do generate energy savings and that they are acceptable to the Energy Saving Trust and Ofgem and are eligible for installation in the CERT programme or the Energy Saving Trust's other Government-funded programme activity. The system have also been accredited by EST under their recommended products scheme.
The thermal performance of the insulation has been assessed in accordance with DIN 4108-4.
The range of SPSenvirowall renders are approved by the BBA and are covered by certificate number 05/4206.
