Developed to ensure consistent industry standards, the EQI Quality Assurance Program enhances EIFS performance and acceptance. EQI delivers a positive and efficient, design, bidding and construction process for building owners, design professionals, manufacturers and contractors. There are nine program components all working together to provide the highest confidence level that exterior insulation and finish systems will be installed correctly with the highest industry standards, underpinned by ISO 9000 standards.
Architects and Designers who engage the EQI Program can be confident they are applying state-of-the-art details, methods and materials for EIFS projects that will be properly executed. The EQI Program is premised on providing access to expert technical support and a library of critical details not only for EIFS, but also for transitions to other enclosure assemblies such as windows and roofs. Continuing education is also available to designers in the proper application of the CAN/ULC-S716.3 Standard for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) – Design Application. Through EQI, the available continuing education, technical support and documentation will reduce the amount of work and risk.

For Architect and Designers, participation is simple and straightforward. Once an EQI project is registered the designer will specify EIFS and EQI as outlined in the Master Specification and that project’s specific drawings and details are then prepared.
To assist the designer, licensed EQI manufacturer details/specifications and the EIFS Practice Guide are available.
