Energy-Efficient Thermal Insulation Systems: EIFS, ETICS, and Beyond

As energy costs continue to rise and the need to conserve resources grows, the world is seeking ways to reduce energy consumption while minimizing environmental impact. Terraco EIFS provides a cost-effective solution to this challenge by lowering energy bills and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. With over 35 years of experience, Terraco EIFS offers innovative thermal insulation systems that comply with and exceed international quality standards.

During the 1990s, issues traditionally associated with insulation building systems from the 1950s to 1970s were addressed and resolved. Today, EIFS, ETICS, and EWI building systems account for a significant portion of the global construction industry, offering improved energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact.

Terraco has developed facade insulation systems, including EIFS and ICF, utilizing various insulation materials or boards to address diverse climatic conditions and building requirements.

Terraco EIFS Systems

EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) is an affordable and widely used insulation material, while Graphite-enhanced (G-EPS) offers 10% greater thermal efficiency, making it ideal for renovation projects. Learn more about EPS insulation here.

MW (Mineral Wool) is a popular thermal insulation system often used when enhanced breathability or fire resistance is required, such as in moisture-prone or older buildings. The Perma system uses highly vapor-permeable decorative renders like Terracoat Sil or Terol for a breathable finish. Discover more about MW insulation here.

ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) is a versatile construction system for both residential and commercial buildings. Constructed using expanded polystyrene ‘blocks’ (ICF), this method provides insulation for both exterior and interior walls. These walls are finished with basecoats, reinforced with mesh, and various decorative finishes. Learn more about ICF insulation here.
