How to achieve efficiency through ventilated facades
The importance of vented facades is becoming clearer. This type of facades are the fundamental point to ensure the well-being of the guests, protect the interior of the building and ensure an efficient and responsible consumption of energy. In order to guarantee that energy efficiency, each project must be studied individually and selected the most appropriate materials.
Previous steps for energy efficiency
When starting a new building project with ventilated facades, you must follow a few steps to ensure the best use of the advantages they offer.
Design and previous study
The first point to keep in mind is the architect's design. The most avant-garde and innovative styles require a greater requirement. For this reason, it is necessary to look at the challenges and possible difficulties before proceeding to the next step.
Depending on the characteristics of the project, quality materials should be selected taking into account the criteria of strength, composition and aesthetics.
This last step before starting the project works is to choose the support system of rainscreen facades more suitable to the characteristics of the project. A good choice of the system will depend of the correct subjection of the façades. In the most innovative and concrete cases, in Sistema Masa we also offer custom solutions.
The role of the vented facades
Among the many advantages offered by ventilated facades, undoubtedly one of the most important is their thermal protection capability. Thanks to its characteristics, this type of facade protects the building from the weather and water leaks, the main causes of deterioration of buildings. This is due to the ventilation layer that remains between the wall and the facade itself. This air chamber ensures thermal and energy efficiency, both in winter and summer.
Another interesting point is that the maintenance of rainscreen facades is much simpler. Thanks to the quality of the materials, only revisions are made every 3, 5 or 10 years, which is also an economic saving.
