A tastefully designed façade adds an air of prestige to any home or building. Colours and surfaces shape the environment. Therefore the façade also has a positive effect on the mood and sense of well-being of the people who live or work there. Whether an idyllic single family home or an urban housing or office complex, new construction or renovation- energetically optimised exterior cladding is not only beautiful, but also cost-effective.
There are many arguments for a thermally insulated façade made of insulating bricks by kess. You will increase the value of your property with an attractive, individually designed brick façade. Our solution will also make this increase sustainable, as it lowers your energy costs.
The System kess only uses brick slips made of 100% pure clay. This natural raw material provides vivid colours and visually appealing easy-care surfaces. Our insulating bricks are resistant to environmental influences and therefore extremely long-lasting and maintenance-free. The installation of the insulating brick panels is quick, easy and without any foundations.
But what is most important: You will save over 40% of your energy costs with the breathable insulating bricks from kess. In addition, the brick surface will also ensure sufficient air exchange, prevent moisture and fungal infestation.
For environmental and fire protection reasons, we principally do not use any polystyrene! The System kess uses polyurethane as the insulating material and is thus classified as having low flammability (fire protection class B1). Since the adhesive tensile strength of our brick slips is several times greater than that of individually bonded stone-wool or polystyrene systems, the risk of propagation of fires is reduced as well.
This characteristic was repeatedly confirmed in independent tests with various thermal insulation composite systems. In addition, our system is the only German ETICS [ => WDVS => external thermal insulation composite system] that passed the LEPIR 2 major fire test.
For many years already, System kess has been approved and monitored for quality in Germany (Z-10.3-763), France (CSTB AVIS Technique) and Poland (APROBATA TECHNICZNA ITB AT-15-8316/2010).
