Measures set out in the revised Part L of the Building Regulations and the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), introduced in 2006, both aim to promote the improvement of buildings’ energy performance and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. CRL Facades is able to assist with advice on how to measure thermal transmittance (commonly known as U-Value). This can be done by the Carbon Index Method or Target U-Value. Both methods lead to information about compliance with the new regulations. In addition to thermal performance considerations, insulation systems also require a condensation risk analysis to ensure that the Dew Point remains outside the fabric of the structure. This analysis service is also offered by CRL Facades.

The EWI Systems normally involve the installation of either expanded polystyrene or mineral fibre of varying thickness. This is fixed either directly to the substrate or to a lightweight metal frame. The render finishes can be directly applied to the board insulation, or in conjunction with an expanded metal lath or meshcloth, to provide a more physically durable system. The rendered finishes are available in a range of colours and textures allowing features such as raised bands, string courses, keystones etc, to be formed. Please visit the Facades Finishes page for more information.

To create a masonry appearance (if required), CRL Facades is able to bond brickslips to the render before final pointing. Alternatively, the company can install insulated panels, or mesh panels, with brickslips already fixed, prior to final pointing.

CRL Facades has the in house skills to be able to manage and install an array of finishes, as well as the services listed above. On new build projects the company can operate as a specialist sub contractor and on external refurbishment schemes it can act as main contractor for the entire project, if required.

CRL Facades provides a nationwide service, via a network of regional offices located throughout the UK and is a full member of the Insulated Render and Cladding Association (INCA).
