Cladding is the application of one material over another to provide
a skin or layer. In construction, cladding is used to provide a
degree of thermal insulation and weather resistance, and to improve
the appearance of buildings. Cladding can be made of any of a wide
range of materials including wood, metal, brick, vinyl, and
composite materials that can include aluminium, wood, blends of
cement and recycled polystyrene, wheat/rice straw fibers.
Rainscreen cladding is a form of weather cladding designed to protect against the
elements, but also offers thermal insulation. The cladding does not
itself need to be waterproof, merely a control element: it may
serve only to direct water or wind safely away in order to control
run-off and prevent its infiltration into the building structure.
Cladding may also be a control element for noise, either entering
or escaping. Cladding can become a fire risk by design or material.
A ventilated facade system is an articulated system requiring
knowledge of the characteristics of the each single functional
layer it comprises, analysing aspects and requirements of:
- Covering or external facing;
- Anchoring structure;
- Air gap;
- Insulating layer;
- Perimeter or curtain wall;
- Anchoring elements;
VENTILATED FACADE BENEFITS
- The choice of the constructive solution of ventilated facade
optimizes and reduce energy consumption by eliminating most thermal
bridges, reaching, in specific situations, energy savings over 30%.
- Extruded panels offer a high mechanical resistance due to their
thickness and honeycomb structure as well as the lack of any
mechanization, incisions or any other manipulations. No
contribution of fire is one important feature.
- Due the organic origin of clay, our products have a low
environmental impact throughout their hole cycle of life. From
manufacturing to final installation no toxic waste or products
results to be.
- Normal use and regular maintenance of panels increases durability
of the building since our system avoid humidity condensations in
the interior extending the life of the building.
- Absence of acoustic bridges results in a reduction of interiors
noise transmission improving the insulation. Moreover, the higher
absorption generated by the air chamber helps reducing the time of
reverberation and improving acoustic conditions.
