What is a ventilated facade
The facade is an important component of the building, which is responsible for the durability of operation and the attractive appearance of the building. The most demanded and technologically advanced way of wall decoration today is a ventilated facade. This construction consists of several layers:
- Frame. It supports the entire structure and is attached directly to the wall. Available in galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminum.
- Facade cladding. It is mounted on the front side of the frame and is responsible for the aesthetic appearance of the building.
- Mineral insulation. It is attached to the wall with dowels and provides moisture protection, as well as increases heat and sound insulation.
There is a gap between the facade panels and the insulation, through which air flows constantly circulate, which helps to eliminate condensation and moisture from the surface of the structures. Benefits of ventilated facades:
- Provide protection of the building from aggressive environmental influences (moisture, wind, temperature changes).
- Significantly reduce heat loss and increase the waterproofing and sound insulation of the building.
- Due to their energy-saving characteristics, they can reduce the cost of paying utility bills.
- Protect the interior from fungi and mold.
- Provide an attractive appearance to the building.
- Extend the service life of the building.
Almost all of our buildings use ventilated façade technology.
