Ventilated facade cladding is the attachment of an outer skin of rear-ventilated cladding to a new or already existing building

The ventilated facade system is a form of double-wall construction that uses an outer layer to keep out the rain and other atmospheric influences and an inner layer to provide thermal insulation, prevent excessive air leakage and carry wind loading. The outer layer breathes like a skin and protect the inner layer which reduces energy losses.

The structural frame of the building is kept absolutely dry, as water never reaches it or the thermal insulation. Evaporation and drainage in the cavity space between inner and outer layer removes water that penetrates between panel joints.Water droplets are not driven through the panel joints or openings because the ventilated facade principle means that wind pressure acting on the outer face of the panel is equalised in the cavity.

Therefore, there is no significant pressure differential to drive the rain through joints.During extreme weather, a minimal amount of water may penetrate the outer cladding. This, however, will run as droplets down the back of the panels and be dissipated through evaporation and drainage.
Main advantages of ventilated facades:
High funtionality in terms of building physics
Energy efficient through use of insulation
Thermal insulation stays permanently dry due to ventilation
High comfortable indoor climate due to vapor diffusion coefficient
Cooling effect in summer time due to barriere effect of the ventilation gap
High thermal insulation increase heat transition from inside ans also outside
High fire protection due to use of high fire resistant materials
High noise absorption due to characteristics of insulation
Lightning protection due to use of our metallic substructure and cladding can serve as natural lightning conductor or can be also connected to separate lightning conductor systems.
Installation Steps:
Assembly planning
Design, calculation and planing of the substructure according codes and norms.
Transfer attachment points
Befor installing the substructure, Transfer of the attachment points is needed.
This can be done traditionally with a shoock cord or with using totalstations to create the marking of fastening points in the vertical plane on facades and walls.
Assembly of brackets
The brackets are mounted in vertical orientation on different types of basematerials concrete, masonry, steel and wood.
Assembly of the insulation
The insulation is placed between the supporting structure and our brackets.There is no space between insulation panels – in accordance to the guideline of the insulation manufacturer.
The fixation of the insulation need to be done also in accordance to the guidline of the insulation manufacturer.
Align and fasten profiles
The distance between profile is decided in the panel manufacturers guidline and according our statical calculation. Our Fastening clip supports the alignment of the profiles.
The connection between the profile and the bracket is made with self-drilling screws or rivets using fixed and flexible points.
Assembly of the facade panels
This last step creates the face of the building. Also in the last step it is important to follow the guidline of the cladding manufacturer to avoid failures.
There main to types of panel assembly. Visible and concealed cladding fixation.
