Ideal Group specializes in the installation, rendering and panting of lightweight polystyrene external cladding. We are fully accredited and are Rockcote preferred applicator. Our System comes with a 15-year product warranty and all the products we use are Australian owned and manufactured.
Installation of Rmax Thermawall:
Rmax Thermawall is one of the best-insulated cladding systems on the market. Rmax is made from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), it is environmentally friendly and is non-toxic as well as odorless, biologically inert and contains no HCFCs. It has an insulation rating of R2.5 and is one of the only polystyrene boards that contain a fire retardant that is BAL-29 compliant.
We use a full cavity system that includes a breathable sarking, a 40x25mm Rmax EPS cavity batten and all starter tracks and flashings.
Rendering of Rmax Thermawall using Rockcote RRR system:
ROCKCOTE Reinforced Render (RRR) System is a screeded reinforced render with a flexible acrylic finish suitable for installation over EPS (expanded polystyrene) that carries a complete system warranty.
As a Rockcote preferred applicator Ideal Group follows the strict guidelines set out by Rockcote when rendering over EPS panels. Firstly a cement based polymer modified render (Rockcote PM100) is applied and reinforced with alkali resistant fiberglass mesh (Rockcote reinforced mesh) over the entire wall. This stage is followed with an acrylic top-coat (Rockcote texture).
Painting of Rendered Rmax Thermawall Panels
The rendered panels are painted with two coats of Rockcote Armour, which is a high performance, flexible acrylic membrane protective coating that provides a high level of protection and durability.
