VENTILATED FACADE SYSTEMS

VENTILATED FACADE SYSTEMS

  • The three-dimension motion freedom of the system in conjuction with the flexibility of the aluminum used in its manufacturing, allows our Ventilated Facade system to avoid the structural movements of the buiding to affect directly the finish of the facade.
  • As the ventilated façade system creates an air gap, wiring and other elements can be concealed inside it. The air gap created between the tiles and the structure in our ventilated façade system can be used to conceal wiring and other elements in its interior.
  • The ventilated air gap also helps to solve existing problems affecting the building such as leaks, unventilated areas, noise, deterioration of the thermal insulation, etc. Refurbishments on the old facade can be carried out without aesthetic worries as it will be later covered by the Ventilated Facade. Any moisture that is present dries quickly thanks to the airflow inside the gap due to the chimney effect. This means that the useful life of the façade materials is considerably extended, and that the existing construction systems are not damaged.
  • The Ventilated Façade uses a mixed cladding system, with adhesive and mechanical anchors to ensure that the tiles are fixed firmly in place while direct bonding leads to risks such as incorrect laying or use of the adhesive material.
  • Being a projected facade, the system allows to conceal any shape irregularity in the building that makes the completion of the project much faster than the bonded fixing systems. Irregularities of 10 cm (315/16”). or more between the deepest and highest point of the facade can be absorbed.
  • An especially important aspect is that the ventilated façade can be installed quickly on buildings that are in use, when completion times have to be as short as possible.
  • The ventilated façade system makes it possible to resolve all contact points, details and surrounds quickly and easily, either using ceramic tiling or aluminium.
  • Thanks to the wide range of formats and the possibility of cutting pieces to measure on site, it is easy to find a format that adapts to the shape of the building, reducing wastage to a minimum.
  • Ceramic tiles remain unaltered over time by atmospheric agents, are graffiti-proof, do not require maintenance and have an absorption factor of less than 0.02%, making them ideal for this type of use.
  • The ceramic ventilated façade is a light envelope solution, as it weighs less than 30 kg/m² (711.91 lb/ft2), only placing a small load on the existing building structure.
  • Efflorescence on the façade is prevented thanks to the open joint between the sections, and the low absorption of the ceramic tiles.
