Reinforced render finish systems from Weber have been used on a number of new-build and refurbished schools for Aberdeen council

The timber-framed buildings have been designed with Scandinavian standards of insulation, together with lighting management systems, underfloor heating, natural ventilation and rainwater conservation. This has allowed them to reach BREEAM “excellent” standards using the 2006 benchmark for schools.

The weber.rend MT system comprises a range of products for application on to a panel background or masonry substrates, where a high level of crack resistance is required.

The construction of the external facade in this case incorporated a panel background, which led to weber.rend LAC (lightweight adhesive coat) being used in conjunction with a glass fibre meshcloth and a synthetic finish.

Weber.plast TF150, an acrylic-based, decorative finish in white, has been used as the final finish coat. It is a wet pre-mixed material, factory batched for consistency, and ready to apply to prepared surfaces. The company says it provides a durable and resilient finish that is good for all weathers.
