ULMA's External Wall System Technical Details
- A Insulator
- B Internal plasterboard wall
- C Thermo-reflective sheet
- D Polymer concrete panel or different skin
The system is used as Facade Cladding to meet the relevant basic requirements of the CTE. The systemdoes not contribute to the resistance of the building structure but rather it is supported by it. The usual structures on which the system is secured areconcrete and metal. In all cases these support structures must be endowed with enough resistance and stability to withstand the stresses transmitted by the system. The anchorages of the support system must be selected in line with the purpose of the latter and the streses they are to be subjected to.
- Polymer Concrete
External Wall System Phases
In this illustration we have detailed the process stages.
1 - SLAB ESTRUCTURE
2 - METAL SUBSTRUCTURE
3 - WATERPROOF PLASTERBOARD (INTERIOR)– MINERAL WOOL INSULATION ( EXTERIOR )
4 - FIREPROOF REFLECTIVE MULTIFOIL INSULATION
5 - POLYMER CONCRETE FACADE OR OTHER SKIN
Advantages of ULMA's External Wall System
- Dry work
- Rapid installation
- Affords Energy Savings
- Minimum waste generation at the works site
- Customizable textures
- Different possible skin (polymer concrete, metallic…)
- Compliance with CTE
- Resistant to the dynamic pressure of the wind
- Resistant to earthquakes
- Waterproof and permeable to steam.
- Thermal and Acoustic Insulation
CTE - LEED - BREEAM
The Technical Building Code requires facade cladding to meet certain performance levels in terms ofenergy savings, noise protection, hygiene, safety in the event of fire and structural safety. ULMA External Wall System fits in with these requirements by way of a detailed study and analysis of the solutions using specialised tools and their ratification by means of tests carried out at approved technological centres.
ULMA External Wall System is committed to developing systems which are more environmentally friendly. Facade cladding systems based on "Light gauge steel framing" technology are classified according to Breeam certification (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) as category A and A+, on a scale where E is the worst classified and A+ the best. Leed certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) does not assess the cladding as such, but rather, it rates the characteristics of the materials used in building as a whole. This is why materials are used deriving from advanced wood technology and recycled or recyclable materials.
"Our motto is toadapt to the needs of each project. This is why por we have developed the ISOLA External Wall System . This system can be adjusted to CTE requirements, bearing in mind the requirements laid down for each geographic area in terms of watertightness, wind pressure and thermal and acoustic insulation. It is a plural and precise system optimised in each requirement.
What's more, as the main panel of the dry facade, there is the possibility of including a wide range of skins: Polymer concrete, Composites Boards, HPL, metal, ceramic boards etc.”
This is why we offer aCUSTOMIZATION both of the System and of the surroundings."
