Rainscreen facades work in different way in winter and in summer. Its technical characteristics are adapted to the climate in function of the external temperature and other meteorological phenomena. However, in areas with more extreme weather conditions, it is necessary to adapt the materials and install vented facades with a big thickness thermal insulation that resist adverse phenomena such as heavy snow, heavy rains or very low temperatures.
Our latest project has been developed in Lithuania, where the warmest temperature is around 17 degrees, while the minimum temperatures have reached 20 negative degrees in the harshest winters.
Sistema Masa Project details
- Location: Vilnius City
- Architect: Alfredas Trimonis
- Approximate surface: 800m2
- Building type: Vivienda unifamiliar
- System: PF-ALU/CLA + GR-CLM
- Cladding: Sandstone Nepal Gold
In these images we can observe the work developed to achieve the appropriate thermal insulation for the meteorological conditions of Lithuania.
Fastening system: PF-ALU/CLA + GR-CLM
The save the cavity between the cladding and the closing wall we use our PF-ALU/CLA fastening system with its large dimension brackets. It is a suitable system for sandstones as the drills are made in the plates do not weaken them like a kerf would.
The system of the corner plates (especially those that were arranged vertically) was solved by using our PF-ALU-60 Tubo tubular profile, as it created a support for our GR-CLM clamp.
