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.
The external walls or the façade of a building is not only what creates the first impression, it is also what protects the buildings’ inhabitants from the environment.
Partition walls used to have only one function as explained by name, but now they have developed into building components that can be used for multiple purposes: fire resistance, sound insulation, moisture protection, thermal insulation, etc.
ROCKWOOL stone wool has excellent performance in fire resistance, mechanical properties and thermal insulation, as well as in acoustics and durability.
Sandwich Panel Core is perfect for flat and molded sandwich panels used in the commercial, industrial and public buildings.
Technical insulation stone wool has four remarkable features: strong temperature resistance, excellent hydrophobicity, great corrosion resistance and low thermal conductivity.
