Ventilated Facade

THE NEED FOR VENTILATED FACADE

The need to adhere to ecological and cost-efficiency specifications is becoming an increasingly important part of the planning and construction of buildings. Energy savings, energy efficiency (up to and including so-called passive houses), costs and attractive appearance are important criteria about which decisions shall be made.

Facade structures must fulfil high demands in terms of long-term requirements such as protection from the elements, thermal insulation, durability and low maintenance, design elements, fire protection, soundproofing as well as ecological requirements. The decision to incorporate a ventilated facade in the design of the building makes it possible to take all these aspects into account.

WHAT IS A VENTILATED FACADE?

A ventilated facade is an outside wall cladding application in which the ventilation zone behind the cladding material is in contact with the atmosphere.

This multi-layered system can guarantee long term functionality and can fulfil all necessary requirements in terms of building physics and static design. Ventilated facade systems combine functional, economical and aesthetic properties and protect the primary structure from weather exposure.
