Knauf Exterior Wall


The Knauf AQUAPANEL® Exterior Wall is an advanced exterior wall system with a unique combination of economic, sustainability, and performance advantages that are quite simply beyond the reach of conventional constructions.

Based on inorganic materials, the Knauf Exterior Wall is highly resilient and completely water-resistant – so it is not affected by mould, softening, or swelling. The Knauf AQUAPANEL® Exterior Wall is fast and easy to build, it is up to 75% lighter than conventional materials, and offers greater design freedom.


When used in new buildings, renovations, or modifications, the Knauf AQUAPANEL® Exterior Wall not only features unrivaled economic and sustainability advantages, it also offers other outstanding building properties:

  • Slimmer wall with the same energy performance
  • Better energy performance achievable with more space for additional insulation

  • Faster closing of the building envelope gives protection against weather
  • Extra interior space due to the thinner width of the materials
  • Better thermal performance and comparable acoustic, fire, and seismic to brick and block
