Fassa Bortolo, a leading Italian manufacturer of renders and integrated building systems, has brought its Fassarend timber frame system to the UK market.
With a four-stage installation process, the timber frame system can be used across a range of residential and commercial projects and has the added benefit of on or offsite construction. The system features light-weight carrier boards, mechanically fixed onto wooden battens which is finished with a thin coat render.
A drained cavity behind the render carrier board allows the components to breath from behind and drain any moisture caused by condensation. The system has been designed to be easy to install due to its light weight and versatility of use: it can be part applied to a timber frame structure off site, with Fassa’s high quality render applied to the facade on site, either by hand or by machine once the project reaches the final stages.
There is an extra option to incorporate a mechanical EWI rail system should the project require extra insulation, in the form of mineral wool or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS).
The Fassa Bortolo solution is available in a large range of colour options. The Fassarend timber frame system has been third party certified by KIWA.
