Sistema Masa starts the construction of a new residential building with ventilated facades. On this occasion, the building has five floors of residential homes. For the cladding and anchors of the facades, we have used two different systems to take more advantage of the spaces and adapt to the structure of the building.
Today in Sistema Masa we show you some solutions to isolate your home from the cold, since most of the current homes lose 99% of the energy because they are not well insulated. The best solution to avoid cold in homes is to undertake reforms in the key elements of the structure, such as roofs, walls, facades or windows.
Sistema Masa is carrying out a new façade rehabilitation project for a single-family home. Thanks to the rehabilitation, the house will improve its thermal insulation and, therefore, its energy efficiency. In addition, thanks to the new façade, it will also acquire a renewed aesthetics and a more up-to-date look.
Yesterday we had the pleasure of participating in the conference organized by the Delegation of the Vallés Occidental and KNAUF Insulation on the ventilated facades. It was a day where they spoke mainly about its components, its installation and its advantages. Eduard Aguiló Riu, manager of Sistema Masa, highlighted in his presentation the importance of knowing the components of ventilated facades and their main advantages.
Sistema Masa has completed another project to rehabilitate the façade of a building. The Hotel Aragón OD of Barcelona is a project of rehabilitation and change of use of the building of old offices. The main characteristic of its facades is the volumetric game of the building, where terraces appear every two floors.
