The “Cappotto” thermal coating system is a multilayer coating that increases the thermal insulation and soundproofing of a building and mainly consists of insulation panels and porcelain slabs cladding on the outer walls. This improves the energy efficiency of the building and eliminates the thermal bridges that are responsible for heat dispersion, condensation and local moulds.
The demand for durable and more attractive surface finishes has resulted in the development of specific products and systems for the installation of porcelain slabs on the insulation panels to create the “Cappotto” thermal coating system.
SOTTILE, the Casalgrande Padana’s range of 4,5 mm thick porcelain slabs, certainly meets the technical and aesthetical requirements of this special application. Lightweight, frost-proof, watertight, easy to clean and low maintenance, the SOTTILE slabs stand out for their high resistance to wear, abrasion, chemical attacks, weather and pollutants, and offer lots of chances to be creative thanks to the variety of colours and surfaces at disposal.
The SOTTILE porcelain slabs are available in the Pietre di Sardegna and Pietre Etrusche series (Line Pietre Native) in sizes 45x45 cm, 45x90 cm, 60x60 cm, 60x120 cm and submultiples. Thanks to its easy installation and its thermal efficiency, the Cappotto thermal coating system with SOTTILE slabs is used in new builds or conversions of residential as well as commercial and service properties.
