The ventilated facade with exposed brick refers to a constructive solution that allows cladding the exterior of a building.
Its main function is the physical separation between the interior and exterior environment of the property. It involves adapting the building to sustainable construction, which provides a series of improvements such as: greater energy savings and a reduction in maintenance costs.
The objective is that the rehabilitated buildings with ventilated façade come closer to the new requirements of the CTE and, with this, ensure that the owners have greater comfort and savings at home. Resistant in summer-winter-eliminates thermal doors-Eliminates condensation.
The fittings are metallic elements of stainless steel whose function is the retention or fastening of the factory to the structural supports.
They are capable of transmitting all or part of the horizontal reaction due to the action of the wind and / or earthquake.
Structural behavior: The exterior sheet of the façade is tied to the building’s structure by means of anchors to floors and pillars, and it is armed, thus avoiding stability problems.
Hygrothermal behavior: Because the brick and insulation pass continuously in front of the building structure, thermal bridges are eliminated. In addition, the air chamber facilitates circulation inside and improves the hygrothermal performance of the facade.
Aesthetic improvements: By eliminating the passage of the brick wall through the front of the slab, and by not requiring the use of special pieces, possible differences in tonality between the bricks are avoided.
