External Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) are a type of exterior cladding. They are multi-component systems, which provide weather resistance, insulation, and the final color and shape of the structure. EIF Systems have been used in Europe for over 40 years. EIF Systems are a non-load bearing exterior cladding. They are attached to a rigid backing, which can range from gypsum sheathing over steel studs to a concrete block wall. This flexibility of substrates makes them ideally suited to retrofit applications, as well as penalization. EIF Systems are particularly good at eliminating energy wasting thermal bridges, and providing maximum design flexibility with regard to shapes and colors. There are a number of variations on the standard.
