Ventilated façade insulation
A ventilated façade is a layered construction consisting of cladding, a supporting sub-structure, a ventilation cavity and insulation.
The unique characteristic of the ventilated façade is that heated air rises in the ventilation cavity drawing cool air from below and venting hot air at the top. This natural airflow removes moisture away from the inner wall and moderates temperature. Ventilated façades are used to protect buildings against combined effects of wind and rain. It also has combined benefits of high-level aesthetics as well as sound proofing and advantages of heat insulation.
