Ventilated facades cleverly create a fully-ventilated air chamber between the building's perimeter wall and the cladding material — which eliminates thermal bridging between the two surfaces and prevents problems with condensation.
Because the air in this space is naturally heated beyond ambient temperatures (and warm air always rises), air continuously circulates between the perimeter wall and the cladding, in a highly beneficial phenomenon known as the 'stack effect.'
This moderates the effects of humidity and dramatically improves the thermal efficiency of the building — which improves structural longevity, reduces operating expenses, and increases occupant comfort.
Due to the unique advantages of porcelain materials in terms of durability, non-porous qualities, color-fastness and near-zero maintenance requirements, our porcelain ventilated facade systems are especially appealing.
