BREATHABLE INSULATION

Whether you are building a new home or refurbishing an old one, Baumit OpenSystem is the perfect solution. All components are vapour permeable and so allow the walls to breathe. This creates optimal living conditions throughout the year, saving you energy costs by reducing heating and ventilation requirements.

BREATHABLE INSULATION
SYSTEM FEATURES

SYSTEM FEATURES

The Baumit OpenSystem has some notable features that will help your building to not only perform well but also to look good for many years to come. Baumit OpenSystem is made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) that contains several 2 to 3mm holes, these ensure high permeability and allow water vapour to be released outwards.

Combining the best fixing technology, vapour permeability, high performance insulation and an innovative topcoat with nanotechnology, Baumit OpenSystem helps to create a building that will last for decades.

SYSTEM COMPONENTS

SYSTEM COMPONENTS

1. Existing Masonry

2. Adhesive - Baumit StarContact white is a vapour-permeable, fibre-reinforced adhesive and base coat render. It is made from breathable aerated lime and is extremely weather-resistant.

THE SOLUTION FOR EVERY SYSTEM REQUIREMENT

Due to its permeability, Baumit OpenSystem can be applied to damp substrates without the risk of moisture buildups behind the insulating layer which can damage the insulation system or brick masonry. Baumit OpenSystem is also salt-resistant, which guarantees permanent bonding of the damp brick masonry and the insulation system.

 THE SOLUTION   FOR EVERY SYSTEM REQUIREMENT
   WITH ADDED BAUMIT  NANOPOR TECHNOLOGY

WITH ADDED BAUMIT NANOPOR TECHNOLOGY

Baumit NanoporTop provides the final coating. This render acts as a topcoat to the External Wall Insulation and protects the surface from dirt and impurities. Photocatalysis technology prevents pollutants from damaging the facade of your building as its surface is microscopically smooth, making it difficult for dirt particles to settle. Furthermore, the render is fast drying which prevents algae and fungi from forming, leaving your rendered facade looking clean and fresh for longer.
