Ventilated Façade


Thermal insulation

The ventilated façade works as a natural thermal protector due to efficient ventilation.

Thermal inertia

Its capacity to manage and store heat is ideal for all climates. The final result is a more uniform temperature which increases the comfort inside the building.

Energy saving

According to studies in energy economy, there is about 50% reduction in the thermal consumption estimated over the traditional cladding.

It also increases the life of a building. The energy saving is far superior to the differential between construction costs and the traditional systems of thermal insulation.


A ventilated façade helps reduce noise pollution inside the building.

Natural ventilation

The open circulation of air inside the air box allows natural ventilation and consequently the elimination of humidity caused by condensation.

Rain protector

It allows a long-term protection against acid rain and other atmospheric agents like rain, ice and snow which are the main causes of deterioration of buildings.


When considering the costs of installing a ventilated façade, a systematic error often occurs: its costs are added to the estimate of a traditional construction system. However, this analysis fails to take into account the fact that the ventilated façade eliminates the need for double walls. When planned in the early design stages of a project, the implementation of a ventilated façade has a significantly more advantageous cost.


An image of innovation and robustness;

A clean and efficient type of building;

An evolved aesthetic.


A continuous thermal comfort;

Remarkable reduced costs of energy usage in winter and summer;

A coating that does not deteriorate with the years and does not have the pathologies of traditional coverings.


Low or no maintenance required;

The interior components of the building reveal a longer duration and a prolonged efficiency;

It keeps the façade updated after many decades.


Before the installation of a ventilated façade the Pirelli building in Italy spent in energy a tenth of its cost a year.

The expenses with energy at the UN headquarters in New York would build an identical building every seven years.
