The facade as a face is a representative element of every building. It is a design feature in all building envelopes. Style and quality are therefore increasingly important in selecting the right facade cladding.
Facade construction differentiates between single-leaf thermal insulation composite system (EIFS) and multi-leaf ventilated curtain walls. The construction of EIFS systems usually consists of a substructure, insulation material, a plaster layer as a beam, and a surface layer. A ventilated curtain wall in contrast, consists of a multi-leaf structure. The facade cladding here is separated by an air layer formed by the underlying insulation and substructure. This enables facades to better protect insulation materials and inner walls against external influences. In addition, ventilated curtain walls ensure improved thermal insulation and allow dark color designs. The facades are then more durable and increase the value of the buildings.
Your benefits from aluminum ventilated curtain walls
- DURABILITY – Self-protection provided by aluminum’s oxide layer as well as increased protection for walls and insulation
- COST-EFFECTIVE – From durability and stability
- ECOLOGICAL – 96% recycling rate with each layer being individually removable
- LIGHTWEIGHT – Optimal for renovation projects due to low substructure load and easy construction
- WEATHER RESISTANT – Protects insulation and walls from weather and permits year-round installation
- MODERN DESIGN – Malleable to any building shape and meets any aesthetic requirement. Color stability avoids the need for repainting.
Cost-benefit analysis of haushaut facades
For ventilated curtain walls, savings can be instantly calculated. It is important to calculate not only the costs of production and construction, but also the costs incurred during use in subsequent years such as cleaning, repairs and maintenance.
