Introduction Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) is an exterior wall cladding that utilizes rigid insulation boards on the exterior of the wall sheathing with a plaster appearance exterior skin. EIFS in its current basic form was developed in West Germany in the s and introduced in the United States in by Dryvit. Exterior Insulation and Finish System The exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) is an exterior wall covering that the Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) describes as “an exterior wall cladding that utilizes rigid insulation boards on the exterior of the wall sheathing with a plaster appearance exterior skin.”. Design Intent PURPOSE HOSPITAL BUILDING SYSTEM (VAHBS) INTEGRATED DESIGN PROCESS (IDP) Overview Schematic Design Design Development Contract Documentation Performance Measures and Functional Objectives BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (BIM) SUSTAINABLE DESIGN An Exterior Insulation and Finish System (a.k.a. Sythetic Stucco) is an exterior wall-cladding system comprised of insulation boards attached to a substrate, covered with a reinforced base coat, and a textured protective finish coat. EIFS was introduced in the US in the 60's and transitioned from commercial buildings to residential homes.
Exterior Insulation and Finish System Installation Guide COREV AMERICA. I. ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS Windows must be designed with the proper sill pan, end dams, or other design elements to ensure that any water penetrating the window assembly is diverted to the exterior of the building. 3. The EIFS shall terminate at least 8” above grade. 2. Foam insulation 3. Base coat 4. Reinforcing mesh embedded in the base coat 5. Top or finish coat. They can be applied to new or existing buildings that employ wood or masonry construction, and can utilize an insulation thickness of up to 16 in. However, such systems are rarely used in low-rise residential retrofits. Exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) is a general class of non-load bearing building cladding systems that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant, finished surface in an integrated composite material system. Exterior Insulation Finish Systems Quality Assurance Program Inc. ECC’s not-for-profit corporation, the EIFS Quality Assurance Program Inc. (EQI), is in keeping with the construction industry’s growing commitment to sustainable and performance-based design and builds on EIFS’ current position as the “cladding of choice.” read more.
