First IAB Certificate for external wall insulation


Weber Building Solutions is pleased to announce the official certification of its Weber.therm XM External Wall Insulation System in Ireland by the Irish Agrément Board.

Weber Building Solutions is the first manufacturer of External Wall Insulation systems to be awarded this distinction.

The official presentation of the certificate took place at this year's PlanExpo exhibition in Dublin with the Minister for Communications, Marine & Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey T.D - who presented the certificate to Weber’s Managing Director, Mr Eamon McDonnell.

Weber.therm XM is a render protected External Wall Insulation System, comprising insulation, mesh cloth reinforcement and thick mineral renders and is designed to meet the exacting durability and performance standards required in Ireland. Weber.therm XM is manufactured at Weber’s production plant in Ballyclare.

The Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government's Floor Area Compliance Certificate (FACC) states that - "the key elements of construction in new houses will have a life in the order of 60 years". The Weber.therm XM EWI system is classified as a key element within the new build construction and, as a result, requires a 60-year design life - this has been confirmed in the IAB certificate.

Irish Agrément Board certification is expected shortly for the Weber.therm XL System, which incorporates expanded metal lath reinforcement and Weber mineral renders.
