Eaves
Print

Eaves is a place where the pitch roof and the façade link. European building trade has promoted short eaves, as part of the façade, that give the final appearance to the house. The shape of this kind of eaves protects the house against devastating winds. In the second half of the 20th century the eaves, mostly with residential buildings, have become simplified and elongated. In recent years, as consequences of climate changes occur also in the form of devastating winds, the building architecture needs to adapt to the changed conditions. With pitch roofs a good solution is the construction of eaves, adapted to climatic changes.

Simple longer eaves and short eaves with different profiles form a thermal bridge that must be thermally insulated, especially with low-energy buildings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Benefits Benefits of applying thermal insulation on eaves
FIBRANxps is a perfect replacement for the materials that have been used until now for construction of eaves, and has some additional benefits as well:

  • the possibility of thermally insulated link between the roof and the façade,
  • the possibility of making different forms and finishes,
  • FIBRANxps is a load-bearing base for façade rendering,
  • Eaves becomes a façade finish also as a visual effect,
  • no maintenance is needed, such as e.g. with wooden cladding

FIBRANxps insulation with profile

Thermal insulation boards for execution of eaves, stucco, battens and other profiled elements for internal or external use, are manufactured in neutral white colour, under the name of FIBRANxps FABRIC.
