ETICS / EIFS (External Thermal Insulation Composite System)

Modern high Quality continuous Thermal Insulation Composite System for external walls without thermal Bridges. This system is suitable for Old as well as New constructed buildings like Villas, low and mid rise multistory Building. It achieve exceptional thermal efficiency to the building to comply with the regulatory norms for energy conservation.

Latest Building codes for Energy efficiency demands for continuous insulation systems and ETICS / EIFS is suitably in line with requirement of continuous Insulation (C.I.) without any thermal Bridges with a large range of external finishing types. Almost any kind of finishing can be achieved with selection of variety of renders.

Benefits of ETICS / EIFS System

  • Reduction of energy consumption
  • Reduction in CO2 emission.
  • Continuous Insulation System
  • It increases Living Comfort
  • No Thermal Bridges
  • Reduced Wall size.
  • Main structures not exposed to climatic conditions
  • Modified Polymerized plaster, free from Cracks.
  • Variety of renders available to select.
  • Compliance to Building codes for Energy Efficiency.


ETICS / EIFS is the abbreviation for External Thermal Insulation Composite System. ETICS / EIFS can be used to improve the energy efficiency of both new and existing buildings..

In general the ETICS / EIFS is supplied as a system by the system holder, who select various components of the ETICS / EIFS system and the system is rigorously tested for it’s durability, efficiency and service life.

SRW being the Rockwool insulation manufacturer has developed the Product suitable to ETICS / EIFS system.

Typical System Components are

  • Adhesive
  • SRW Rockwool ETICS / EIFS insulation
  • Anchors
  • Base coat
  • Reinforcement, usually glass fiber mesh
  • Finishing layer: finishing coat with a key coat (optional) and/or a decorative coat (optional)
  • Accessories, e.g. fabricated corner beads, connection and edge profiles, expansion joint profiles, base profiles, etc.


ETICS / EIFS system call for certain parameters from mineral fiber Rockwool insulation to be used in an ETICS / EIFS system as an efficient insulation providing excellent thermal properties, extraordinarily high compressive resistance, a straight, even and smooth surface finish to receive the ETICS / EIFS base coat components with reinforcement through out the life of the system.

SRWF has developed SRW ETICS / EIFS Rockwool Board & Lamella Insulation to fulfill the above requisite properties. SRW ETICS / EIFS Products are tested and approved by various ETICS / EIFS system suppliers in the region.

SRWF Rockwool products are tested for various properties from a recognized third party international laboratories in accordance with various International Standards like ASTM C 612, BS EN 13162, ISO etc.
