The ventilated facade is a cladding system for buildings which provides advantages in relation to installation and conservation due to the circulation of air it features between the cladding and the external wall, and which serves to eliminate humidity and efflorescence. In addition to a highly attractive and unique finish, the implementation of this system guarantees improved safety, acoustic isolation and lower air conditioning costs, among other benefits.
ANCHORAGE WITH A PROFILE
The profile technique features ease of assembly and the perfect fitting of the cladding. This method provides a better performance than other similar systems on the market, but with fewer anchor-points and less noise and dust due to the reduced amount of drilling.
The installation of facades with mortar and adhesive cement requires experts in the field to determine the thickness of the cladding slabs in accordance with the climatic conditions, as well as the use of stainless steel anchorages. The adhesive used must be deformable in order to absorb the movement of the bracket and thermal expansion. Moreover, the product should high level of adherence to guarantee proper bonding.
BATEIG flooring has deservedly earned a fine reputation worldwide thanks to the magnificent performance of Bateig natural stone.
It is important to select the correct thickness of the slabs according to the surface on which it is to be used. Furthermore, the use of adhesive cement is essential, and care should be taken to prevent stains caused by damp or efflorescence.
If the surface of the stone is to be treated in situ, a parallel sealing treatment is required in order to keep the stone as clean and efficient as possible for its final intended use.
