Sometimes a facade is just that – a facade. When using Uni-Base Board however, you get a whole lot more. Uni-Base Board is part of the Uni-EIFS range by Unitex Granular Marble and is a lightweight, external wall cladding comprising of pre-coated, 50, 75 or 100mm thick reinforced EPS sheets, used in conjunction with Unitex Base Board Render.

The Uni-Base Board cladding offers externally insulated walls with R-value 2.6 or more, is easy to install, cost effective and provides a smooth, flat, rendered finish.

Used widely in a recently completed section of Mornington Peninsula’s Martha Cove development, Uni-Base Board shows its strengths. Comprising of over 20 luxury homes of 40-50 squares each, the seaspray close section of this massive and ideal development sets the standard.

A wide range of construction materials such as blockwork, weatherboards, stacked stone and the rendered Uni-Base Board have been used on the facades to give the development a modern, resort look.

In this beachside environment, durability of products is paramount, so the Uni-Base Board system is more suitable. The flat sheets are pre-rendered and reinforced with mesh; stainless steel corner pieces provide strength and clean edges and can handle the difficult conditions.

Unitex Base Board Render and Unitex Texture are then applied to result in a flat, weather-proof, attractive facade.

Construction manager Nino Mimmo from Pearl Hill had used Uni-Base Board before and knew the value of a quality product.

“The architect had specified Unitex or similar. We chose Uni-Base Board, because we know it is reliable and the back-up service is so useful. We get the rep on-site a lot.”

Unitex has been in the market of supplying facade systems for almost 25 years – that is a lot of knowledge and experience.

On this special project, the R-value was also important. These homes have been built above the 5 Star standard requirements so the Uni-Base Board was of even greater benefit.

The 75mm sheets offer good thermal insulation against the cold winds off the water and the summer heat, making these luxury homes even more comfortable.
