Ventilated façades comprise a building system that has consolidated its place among architects and builders, in particular for its high quality, aesthetic possibilities and its undisputed thermal and acoustic insulation benefits.
A ventilated façade is made up of a supporting wall, an insulating layer that is either anchored to it or sprayed on it, and a facing layer joined to the building using an anchoring structure, generally in aluminium. In this system, an air chamber is created between the insulation and the facing, and the "chimney effect" provides for an efficient natural ventilation system, maintaining the insulation dry and achieving significant energy savings.
It is considered to be the most efficient system for solving insulation issues in buildings, eliminating thermal bridges and condensation problems.
The ceramic material is extruded porcelain stoneware which is coloured throughout the whole body, with a natural or glazed finish in a wide range of colours, fired at a temperature of 1200ºC.
Leading European laboratories have certified the physical characteristics of this material:
The following aspects can be highlighted as the main advantages of this building material:
Cerámica Mayor recycling and waste rejoins all surplus production and the manufacturing process, thus being a produto friendly environment.
The use of calcareous clays minimizes the emission of CO2 per m2.
0% of wastewater discharged.
