A single skin masonry wall externally insulated with a non-combustible DCT VulcanWool insulation, protected by a rainscreen cladding supported by the Nvelope engineered helping hand sub-framing system. The insulation is mechanically fixed directly to the exterior face of the masonry with minimal thermal bridging, to form a continuous insulation layer. As the stonewool insulation is deemed non-combustible per AS 1530.1, this solution is recommended for type A or B non-combustible wall construction.
DCT VulcanWool is a non-combustible high density mineral rock fibre stonewool insulation for use as external grade insulation with water shedding characteristics, designed for use in ventilated rainscreen facades and other thermal and acoustic wall, roof, floor and ceiling applications in residential and commercial buildings.
Nvelope Rainscreen Back Framing simplifies the complexity of modern building facades using a unique ‘helping hand’ bracketing system which is fixed to the substrate at set vertical and horizontal separations. Suitable for the most demanding facade materials, our range of Nvelope brackets, rails and rainscreen support systems are safe, economic and effective.
