VENTILATED FACADES

Italgraniti suggests the use of its porcelain slabs, in the various standard and submultiple sizes, as covering elements for ventilated facades.

The weight of the system and the effects of wind are the main parameters to be considered when assessing the feasibility of a ventilated facade. These covering systems allow the creation of attractive works both on new buildings and during renovation projects, optimising heat and noise insulation.

The “ventilated facade” can quite rightly be considered as the state of the art in modern building construction.

Benefits

  • Elimination of all cold bridges, creating a barrier to prevent heat loss
  • Lower energy consumption
  • Effective barrier against direct sunlight
  • Strong weather-proof barrier
  • Reduction of unsightly smog dirt and damage
  • Soundproofing
  • Rugged structure, inexpensive to construct and maintain
  • “Chimney effect”, up-draught between the supporting structure and the ventilated part, encouraged to include heat insulation by aiding the dispersion of all condensation formed
