THE BEST IMPACT RESISTANCE

The Baumit PowerSystem is a cement-free external wall insulation system offering the highest levels of impact resistance. PowerSystem gives your facade a protective ‘shield’ by perfectly balancing toughness and elasticity, which is beneficial for the facade. In particular, modern architecture without roof projections exposes facades to high stresses.

THE BEST IMPACT RESISTANCE


 A Strong Façade

A Strong Façade

There are a number of possibilities for protecting a facade, ranging from basic structural measures to using high-tech building materials. The Baumit PowerSystem belongs in the latter category by combining the latest in insulation technology and organic, environmentally-friendly materials.

Effective facade protection is achieved through fibreglass mesh embedded in the insulation which is then topped with a render. This protects the layers underneath from moisture while also giving your facade an attractive appearance and protecting the layers underneath from moisture.

Innovative Protection

Together the Baumit PowerSystem components can provide impact resistance up to 70 joules. This is the equivalent of a football travelling at 100km per hour or a tennis ball at 170km per hour.

This level of extreme protection is achieved by combining StarTherm grey or white expanded polystyrene (EPS) boards, StarTex glass fibre reinforced mesh, StarContact adhesive, and PowerFlex, the organic, cement-free basecoat.
