To reduce energy consumption and improve thermal comfort, embracing the eco-sustainable connotations that are becoming more fundamental and essential every day, it is no longer enough to equip homes and buildings with efficient HVAC systems; we must also fit them with effective external claddings, which contribute to residential and environmental wellbeing as well.

Ventilated facades are an excellent means of achieving outstanding energy performances. But what do they consist of? They comprise a multilayer system installed on projecting mountings which separate it from the masonry, providing a cavity for constant ventilation to reduce thermal loads and enhance breathability.

Other benefits of ventilated facades are: both thermal and acoustic insulation, making full use of walls’ thermal inertia to reduce heat levels in summer and heat loss from the surface in winter; improved health values which prevent mold and damp stains; strength, which in the final analysis lowers maintenance costs; and uniformity, fundamental for an attractive visual impact.

Ventilated facades with porcelain stoneware outer covering, in particular, combine excellent thermal performances with beauty, versatility and light weight. Specifically, since the facade is the “face” of the building, the use of porcelain stoneware, available in a wide variety of sizes, offers architects the utmost flexibility in modulating the space available, with decorations and surfaces that add immense originality to the cladding and make it truly unique. This is not to forget all the benefits of this compact, attractive ceramic material: durability, low maintenance, water resistance, flame retardance, high mechanical strength, resistance to thermal shocks and smog and, last but not least, the lightfastness of its colors, an important consideration.
