Infinity house is a commercial office building with composite exterior cladding panels which consist of 20mm GRC skin over a lightweight insulating core .
The exterior cladding panels had become cracked due to differential thermal movement of the outer skin eventually leading to water ingress into the panel .It is now recognised that such panels are not suited to climates with large short term temperature variations such as Ireland .
Remmers were contacted and recommended the elastoflex system which was applied by specialist contractor SCB. The system incorporates a highly elastic acrylic resin and reinforcement fabric which allows for dynamic cracking to be accommodated.
