Ecological, with natureplus®

-certi ed wooden soft bre

insulation

System components

Wall structure

a) Installation directly on the load-bearing wood structure, alternatively

on standardised/approved board materials and solid timber formwork

and on solid wood elements and stacked board elements

b) On solid substrates (masonry, concrete/with or without render)

Insulation

Sto soft bre board M – monolithic wood bre insulation board

Fixing

Dowels or wide-crown staples

Reinforcement

Reinforcing render: StoLevell Uni – mineral reinforcing render

Reinforcing mesh: Sto Glass Fibre Mesh

Alternative: Sto Shield Mesh AES

Intermediate coating

(if necessary)

StoPrep Miral – lled, pigmented, silicate priming coat

Possible top coats

• Mineral, silicone resin-bound and cement-free nishing renders or

nishing renders with Lotus-Effect®

, tintable in the StoColor System

• Silicone resin facade paints or facade paints with Lotus-Effect®

,

limited tintability in accordance with the StoColor System

• Lightness values of nishing renders of > 20 %

• Sto Brick Slips

The monolithic wood bre insulation board

carries the natureplus seal of quality. It

embodies health-awareness, environmen-

tally-friendly production, the protection of

our limited resources and their suitability of

application.

Ecology, energy conservation and

sustainability are central topics

for the 21st century. Against this

background, sustainable and eco-

logical building products offering

excellent functionality are acquir-

ing ever greater importance. The

StoTherm Wood external wall

insulation system meets these

environmental requirements in an

exemplary manner.

The system components of StoTherm

Wood are perfectly coordinated from

the substrate through to the nishing

render, and are technically approved

for wood and solid constructions. The

monolithic soft wood bre board is

natureplus®

-certi ed, con rming its

sustainability credentials. The render

texture and colour can additionally

be varied to ensure that buildings

insulated with this ecological insulant

also meet the very highest aesthetic

standards.

Concise facts and gures

Area of application

• Existing and new buildings up to high-rise level

• Onto external timber walls

• Direct installation onto wooden, load-bearing

structure

• Onto standardised or approved board materials

and solid wood formwork

• Onto solid wood and stacked board elements

• Onto solid substrates (masonry, concrete)

Properties

• Very high crack resistance

• Good shock-proof and impact resistance

• Resistant to mechanical stress

• Highly weather-resistant and highly effective

thermal insulant

• Highly permeable to CO2 and water vapour

• Normal / limited combustibility

• Good sound protection properties

• Optimum thermal insulation in summer

Approvals

The relevant technical European approvals and/ or

national application documents apply

Planning advice

Fire protection barrier

Mineral bre board horizontal or vertical according to national regulations

Fixing

Quantity and spacing depend on load-bearing capacity of the substrate

and on the wind load conditions
