Building facing (lining)
Modern appearance of your façade
One more area where specialists of Rodos Grand can help you is coating of building facades.
A mounted ventilated façade is one of the most advanced and popular technologies of external facing of facades. Such facades represent various types and complexity structures mounted into the main (bearing) wall on which coating (facing) elements are mounted (natural stone or ceramic granite slabs, glass, various polymers and composite materials). External façade facing slab fulfills a decorative role and protects from precipitations and mechanical impacts. Moisture contained in the building mass and inside the premises is extracted into a ventilated area. Thus, heat losses in heat insulation material are minimized. The heat insulation material covers unsatisfactory joints of the building and provides for uninterrupted conservation of heat along the total area of a façade. In summer, thermal protection with the help of ventilation protects walls from thermal load and provides comfort inside the building. For mounting of ceramic granite on external surface of the building wall, special hanging systems are installed.
Facing structures allow leveling of dimensional discrepancies and irregularities on walls and also covering of cracks. Air space provides for ventilation preventing accumulation of heat and moisture, allows runoff of precipitation coming into backside of the facing. Heat insulation material remains dry.
Ventilated facades are perfectly conjugated with roof, plinth, window and
The major functions of ventilated facades may be described as follows:
Water vapors contained in the air penetrate into the wall structure and, cooling down to the temperature below dew point, are condensed. Moister is accumulated in material pores and under minus temperatures freezes and, deforms its structure while expanding, which is accompanied by cracking and subsequent destruction of wall material. In mounted façade systems,
2. Heat insulation.
Since heat insulation material is laid under the facing, such houses are turned into a peculiar kind of thermos. For instance, when heating is switched off in winter, they cool down 5–6 times slower than their
3. Sound proofing.
Mounted systems increase
Mounted facing plays a great role in maintaining the balance of water vapors circulating through the building walls. According to standards, air space under the facing must be gapless, without bypasses. When such standards are met, there appears a vertical air draught, like draught in a
Advantages of ventilated facades result from their main functions.
Profile system of mounted ventilated facades allows use of different dimensions ceramic granite for walls facing and depending on requirements to the façade. The structure of the bearing profile is designed in such a manner that all moisture on the façade surface is withdrawn to drainage excluding the contact with heat insulation material and building wall.
Water vapors appearing in building walls in the process of its operation are removed by natural ventilation provide by the system of mounted facades, thus significantly improving the thermal insulation properties of walls and providing comfortable temperature modes inside the building.
Combined use of a mounted façade and a heat insulation material is an excellent
The external screen has definite functions: it protects the heat insulation layer located behind it from weather impacts, and in summer, reflects considerable part of sun rays falling upon it which prevents the building from overheating.
A bearing outside wall does not usually require any special treatment for installing of ventilated structures on it. Besides, there is no necessity to lay plaster on the wall.
When restoring old buildings for which movement of moisture from inside to outside is typical, the use of ventilated facades excludes the necessity to use plaster.
Ventilated facades lined with ceramic granite may be easily repaired, by quick and easy replacement of slabs.
Possibility of performing façade works in any season. When lining a ventilated façade with ceramic granite, homogeneous color solution is achieved for the building façade, when using natural stone, this is impossible to achieve since natural stone is not homogenous. At the same time, thanks to color diversity of ceramic granite any design solution for façade is possible. Ventilated facades lined with ceramic granite are durable and do not need maintenance which significantly reduces budget for building maintenance.
