Ventilated facades are a multi-layer structural solution that enables "dry" installation of the covering elements. The steel load-bearing structure is anchored to the building wall with brackets and anchoring elements and enables the assembly of "independent" layers, which create a air gap between the wall and cladding. This gap provides effective natural ventilation which offers significant advantages in removing heat and moisture, thereby ensuring greater comfort and high energy efficient. The inclusion of a suitable insulation material, installed in the cavity, increases the facade system’s energy performance. In addition, ventilated walls tend to increase the reflection of external noise as the particular construction, ensuring a certain level of acoustic absorption.
Besides this technology enables to fully exploit the considerable aesthetic potential offered by exterior wall coverings. This allows to face the most demanding design challenges with no significant constraints on architects.
The choice of cladding material is crucial, because it plays a key role in structural stability, and can directly affect the performance of the building. The reduced weight, excellent technical properties (expansion, absorption, corrosion and resistance), in addition to reduced maintenance, make PORCELAIN TILES particularly suitable for creating ventilated facade.
