For external walls in timber construction, the weather protection that is formed by the actual façade and the moisture control layer behind it, take on special importance. For ventilated and rendered facades, PAVATEX offers insulation systems optimally adapted to the needs of timber construction.
The voids in the timber frame construction are insulated with PAVAFLEX. See “Between rafter insulation system” chapter for installation information.
The PAVATEX DB 3.5 vapour control membrane is installed internally. Installation and all connection work must be carried out in accordance with the PAVATEX sealing brochure.
PAVATHERM-PLUS or DIFFUTHERM is installed on the outside of the external wall studs. Either insulation anchors or wide crown staples may be used for fixing.
The wall insulated with PAVATHERM-PLUS is clad with a facade system in wood, stone, sheet metal or similar. DIFFUTHERM must be rendered with a mineral-based render system. Attention must be paid to the application details of the relevant rendering contractors.
