Exterior Insulating Finish Systems
PlastiSpan EFS is a specifically manufactured expanded polystyrene insulation board to meet the requirements of various types of exterior protective coatings as classified by the Exterior Insulation Manufactures Association.
The EPS insulation boards manufactured by Plasti-Fab Ltd. are quality controlled by a third party Quality Assurance Program monitored/certified by Intertek (ITS) to meet the CAN/ULC-S701 standard.
EIFS are non-load bearing exterior wall cladding systems typically consisting of PlastiSpan EFS insulation attached to a substrate, an integrally reinforced base coat applied to the face of the PlastiSpan EFS insulation and a protective finish applied to the surface of the base coat. The PlastiSpan EFS insulation is attached to the substrate using specially formulated adhesives and/or mechanical attachment.
PlastiSpan EFS insulation used in EIFS applications covers the outside of the building so that the structure is isolated from the wide temperature fluctuations of the climate. This reduces expansion and contraction of the structure and stabilizes interior temperatures.
