What is a Facade cladding system


The ventilated facade is a coating system of the building walls which leaves a ventilated chamber between the coating and the insulation. In European academic community, it is considered as the most efficient system for resolving the building’s insulation, eliminating the unwanted thermal bridges as well as the condensation problems and so achieving an excellent thermal-hydrometric behavior of the building.

SUSTAINBLE COMMITMENT


With this system a continuous insulation can be achieved for the exterior of the building, protecting the interior sheet as well as the slab edges. In the ventilated chamber, due to the heating of the air layer of the intermediate space compared to the environment air, the so called "Stack Effect" is produced which generates a continuous ventilation in the chamber. Appropriately dimensioned the air entry and exit a constant evacuation of water vapor coming both from the interior as well as the exterior of the building is achieved, keeping the insulation dry and obtaining a better performance of the insulation and big savings in energy consumption. The Ventilated Façade, additionally to impact in the energy consumption savings of the building, eliminates the direct radiations or the bad weather on walls or slabs protecting them from the pathologies which affect buildings constructed with traditional systems.

The constructive system that we have developed in ULMA Architectural Solutions increases the useful surface of your project without the need of a protective sheet. Also, it constructs perfect planes allowing the correction of possible planar defects of the traditional and structural parameters. It is a safe and light system that distributes its loads on the resistance elements of the building, no on the protections.
