Requirements for ventilated facades - Decent

What are the requirements for facades will tell the specialists of the company Devent. Types of ventfasades, disadvantages and advantages, as well as all about the composition of the panels.

Today, the ventilated façade is a popular solution for cladding buildings and structures of all kinds. It is chosen primarily because of its longevity and excellent performance properties: these are the reasons for the popularity of this engineering solution, which has only been gaining momentum over the years.

But to decide whether a particular building or structure needs a curtain-type ventilated facade, it is necessary to approach the issue comprehensively and consider several important characteristics of the system, including:

  1. Technical characteristics (i.e., load-bearing capacity of the walls, fire and thermal insulation requirements of the façade, etc.)
  2. architectural (including the external features of the ventfasade, its aesthetic properties, as well as functionality);
  3. financial costs - a point that often stands at the head of the decision and has the greatest impact on it.

The requirements for ventilated facades

Sets of products and materials for the device of curtain wall systems with ventilated air gap are subject to technical evaluation of suitability in accordance with Technical Regulations Tr2009/013/BY "Buildings and Structures, Building Materials and Products. Safety".

The system is assessed as a whole, i.e. the structural solution for the substructure, insulation and cladding, taking into account the requirements for each constituent element.

LLC "Decent" is a developer of ventfasade systems. The system "FPS-1" - is the developed technical solutions for ventfasades on the device zinc-coated substructure facing cassettes of steel, aluminum, aluminum or steel composite panels, lamellas and profiled sheet.

The system "FPS-2" - developed technical solutions ventfasada with cladding from ceramic granite and fiber cement.

Pros and cons of the technology of ventilated facade

The following points can be attributed to the advantages of this facade solution:

  • Maintenance without repair - over time, the ventilated facade does not lose its initial physical and mechanical characteristics: it does not crack under the influence of low temperatures, does not burn out under the influence of ultraviolet radiation, does not require annual repairs, easy to operate and durable;
  • the possibility to embody any design and architectural solutions - the technology of a ventilated facade is quite flexible in terms of choice of materials for cladding, size and shape of the facade panels;
  • all-year-round installation - owing to the absence of "wet" processes in the process of installation, ventfasades can be mounted at any time of the year;
  • high indicators of thermal insulation and load-bearing capacity.
The disadvantages include:

  • high price - ventfasades systems are more expensive than, for example, plaster insulation systems: the reason is that high requirements are imposed on all components of ventfasades, because the reliability of the entire system depends on it;
  • Significant weight of the structure - one of the important factors affecting the longevity of the ventilated facade system is the load on the walls, which depends on the weight of the cladding. It is necessary to take into account the parameters of each specific building and if necessary to select the cladding material with less weight or design of the system with mounting only in the monolithic belts.
