    Render failure

    Render failure

    Hi Malc (all) Knauf Aquapanel Outdoor recommends the smooth side out for rendering, as the rough side has the batch number on it.... in reality, it does not matter which side you render to Most of the render system suppliers (and the BBA) have tested both sides and get identical delamination...

    Rendering onto block and steel beam

    Also, if the steel has been painted with an intumescent paint, there needs to be a gap between the steel and the back of the board to allow for the intumescent coating to activate in the event of a fire.....

    Rendering onto block and steel beam

    As per owls comment.... then mesh across the junction between the boarded element and block work. The metal may expand and contract due to hot and cold conditions, where block work will not... If the steel is large or long, better to leave a gap as a movement joint between the elements

    Stick render boards

    Hi there I’ve seen ICF built walls fail and blow, then have some spots where the render should be flush and then 100 to 150mm voids to made a flat finish... not fun, and not really what the render is for (to make good failed sub-structures) You need to decide where you want your flat finished...

    Rendering on render board on a timberframe

    Hello Julie The above posts are correct, a boarded render system is perfect for cladding a timber frame, and a modern thin coat (silicone finish) is best when using a boarded render system. A timber frame settles during the first couple of years, so a flexible lightweight render is far better...
