Terraco's innovative EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finishing System)

Established for more than 30 years, Terraco has gained worldwide recognition as a leader in the formulation, design and production of environmentally-friendly finishing materials. The company entered the UK market last year through the acquisition of Addagrip Surface Treatments and is now ready to take the retrofit building industry by storm, with its innovative EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finishing System).

A building can lose up to 35% of its heat through the walls. EIFS is an energy efficient thermal wrapping, which is applied to the exterior surfaces of a building and then finished with Terracoat a long-life, decorative and protective coating system. This not only drastically improves its insulation properties but vastly improves and updates the overall look of the building while creating a comfortable living space all year round.

A key benefit of having Terraco EIFS installed is the fact that occupants are not unduly disturbed or need to move out while it is installed. In addition, no internal floor space is lost.

“EIFS is currently being used in both hot and cold climates and is proven to substantially reduce heating or cooling costs,” says Phill Ferreira, Business Development Manager at Terraco. “The system has already shown its credentials in projects around the world and we are delighted to be sharing our technology and experience with the UK market.”

The launch of Terraco EIFS in the UK couldn’t have come at a better time, as the Government is busy rolling out its Green Deal initiative and Terraco is working closely with those involved with Green Deal. The innovative Green Deal (part of the Energy Act 2011) is intended to reduce carbon emissions cost effectively by revolutionising the energy efficiency of British properties.

“The insulation properties of EIFS could not only save the amount of energy a house uses by up to 50% - but it also gives the building a complete face lift, giving it a brand new look,” says Phill. “EIFS is suitable for all types of solid wall buildings. We know that houses come in all shapes and forms and offer a whole range of architectural, design and decorative texture finishes to suit your particular building, whatever its age or style.”

Although Terraco has only been in the UK for a short while, EIFS is already widely used in many of the countries in which the company is established including some of the coldest countries of the world namely Russia, China, South Korea and Turkey.

“Terraco EIFS is the most effective insulation system around for residential, commercial or public buildings. It’s the perfect insulation system for new build, renovation or retrofit,” says Phill. “We are also proud that, in line with other Terraco products, it offers an environmentally-friendly solution.”

Terraco is currently sharing its knowledge of how EIFS is applied at its newly-established training centre, which it has opened at its headquarters in Uckfield, East Sussex. The specially designed centre includes training bays and classroom facilities, with a capacity for up to ten people at a time.
