A ventilated facade is a protective or decorative surface applied as an external layer to the vertical perimeter walls of buildings. It is anchored to the walls of the building with an aluminium substructures and supports made from galvanized aluminum.
A ventilated wall system consists of three major components:
• An external cladding layer with open joints
• An aluminum substructure secured by aluminium ancore to the building
•A thermal insulation layer.
A space must be left between the ventilated facade and the wall of the building to allow external insulation of variable thickness to be inserted. A ventilation gap is thus created between the two surfaces; the air in the chamber is moved by convection generating a micro-ventilation effect which allows the walls of the building to breathe.
The ventilated facade is often used to mask the less aesthetic elements of various systems on the outside of the building.
PespaGroup is able to provide:
- technical advice for designers about installation systems and the types of materials suitable for ventilated facades;
- sizing of substructures;
- executive cladding pattern design;
- coordination and assistance for specialist installers for fitting ventilated facades;
- certification of materials according to standards in force.
ADVANTAGES OF VENTILATED FACADES
· Rapid project design
· Lightweight framework attached to wall
· Easy to install and low maintenance
· Tiles can be replaced without any construction work
· Increased stability of the surface, with no risk of breakage or detachments
· Excellent thermal insulation. It maintains a stable temperature inside the building
· Reduction of outside noise by 20 - 30 %
· Elimination of moisture condensation
