Breathing Houses


Improving comfort, limiting heat loss and energy consumption are just some of the purposes of sustainable living. To achieve them, many designers are using in their projects the ventilated façade system or facade advanced screen, as shown in the UNI 11018 2003, increasing thus the building’s performance. It is a dry construction method, characterized by the introduction of a ventilated air gap between the support of external coating and the back insulated wall. The external panels are anchored to the wall, thanks to fastening systems and suspension devices that deploy them from the support, in order to create a natural ventilated interspace. Each layer has a specific function and it’s essential to the system operation. The external panels, as well as providing a strong imprint to the building aesthetics, protect it from direct Direct wall, wind effects and pouring rain. The anchoring structure supports the cladding slabs and creates an interspace, ventilated thanks to the left open joints between a module and the other, where air can passes allowing to dissipate the excess of heat in the summer and to reduce the ‘ humidity, with a great performance improvement in heat and humidity of the building envelope as well as living comfort of the interior. The market offers technology solutions combined with the aesthetics quality.
