Tecnology of Ventilated Facade
A ventilated wall consists of multiple layers and these cause an ongoing process of natural ventilation through the facade. This covering technology removes excess of humidity and plays a vital role in keeping the building cool in summer and warm in winter by controlling heat loss. Besides this technology enables to fully exploit the considerable aesthetic potential offered by exterior wall coverings. This allows to face the most demanding design challenges with no significant constraints on architects.
The ventilated facade is composed of three basic elements called functional layers:
1 Thermal insulation applied to exterior of the curtain wall.
2 Substructure supporting outer facing.
3 Outer facing separated from insulating layer by a cavity several centimetres in depth.
