The new project Sistema Masa, build by La Llave de Oro is located a few meters from Parc Central de Poble Nou, Barcelona.

Add to that the ceramic cladding with a special design which is very marked vertical joints that combine with the offset of the woodwork adds.
To fix the vented facades we used the PF-ALT/SV system. As for the cladding, we chose a porcelain tile material of 120x56cm format, the Vision series in black color of Roca Tiles.
System for ventilated facades: PF-ALT/SV
We chose the fixing system for ventilated facades, PF-ALT/SV, for its special design for cladding with reduced thickness materials. It is an anchor with visible nails ideal for vertical and specially designed for porcelain or ceramic tile assemblies, among others.
On more than one occasion we have chosen this system for installation of ventilated facades, as Hospital Señor de Bonfim, pabellón deportivo Arcos de Valadez or Torre del Ángel.
