Some background

For decades the standard method of fixing items through external wall insulation, such as satellite dishes, washing lines, fence and gate posts, external pipe work, hanging baskets, lights and alarms, canopies, utility boxes, signage have all relied on the use of timber patresses to ensure adequate fixing upon reinstatement.

Why Timber?

As the alternative methods available on the market would increase the cost of installation combined with the current drive to reduce costs in the sector, means that they are rarely used and why the use of timber is currently best practice.

The continuing use of poor and inappropriate timber being used by large numbers of installers does provide a possible risk of failure in the future, costing thousands to repair and why SWIFIX fittings were developed.

Providing a solution that is technically more appropriate than timber and that costs less, presents the industry with the option to eradicate the use of timber within EWI, and to improve the overall performance of the installation.

The satellite fitting is also the ideal solution if you require a new dish after the installation of external wall insulation at a later date, protecting guarantees and warranties.
