why ventilated facades

Ventilated Facade systems also known as double-skin facades or rain-screens, greatly assist in protecting buildings against wind, rain and temperature variations and keeping the building dry and energy efficient.

A ventilated facade system consists of two layers of different facades separated by an air cavity which prevents rainwater from penetrating and diffuses water vapour from the inside. While the external cladding protects from rain and wind, the air cavity plays a major role in the ventilated facade system. A naturally ventilated facade results in a temperature difference between the face of the cladding panel and the air cavity behind. This in turn creates a variation in air density causing air to flow upwards within the cavity resulting in a chimney effect. The airflow transports heat from the cavity out through openings at the top of the wall, reducing humidity and increasing the efficiency of insulation.

Benefits of ventilated facades


Thermal
Significant reductions in HVAC reliance through:

  • A reduction in the amount of heat the building absorbs in hot weather conditions from the partial reflection of solar radiation by the outside facade, and the naturally ventilated air cavity.
  • In cold weather conditions ventilated walls retain heat, resulting in a lower reliance on heating. HVAC electricity consumption typically accounts for around 40% of total building consumption.

Acoustic
Ventilated facade systems provide an increase in the reflection of external noise, with some projects achieving an average reduction of up to 8dB. With the primary external noise sources affecting buildings being road traffic noise, a reduction of this level can greatly improve occupant comfort.


Structural
Ventilated facades don’t suffer from mould, fungi and rot, making them extremely durable and virtually maintenance free. The natural bottom-to-top airflow through the cavity assists in eliminating moisture accumulation on the facades, helping to prolong the structural integrity and ultimately the lifespan of a building.

Raw

CeramaPANEL Raw has a authentic, textured surface that exhibits the raw characteristics of the fibre cement, along with the visible sanding lines on the surface of the boards giving it an extra tactile and visual impact. As the seasons change and the years pass, the natural ageing of the fibre cement leaves subtle traces on the surface, and the facade will gradually acquire a distinctive Patina.​

CeramaPANEL Raw is much easier to handle on site than surface coated sheets and retains its appearance for longer. Being a through colour fibre cement with no surface coating, there is no need to seal edges or other cuts and minor damage is less visible than coated sheets.

With strong dirt, stain and water-repellent properties, as well as their resistance to all kinds of weather conditions it is a virtually maintenance-free facade with exceptional durability.

SurfaceStructured, velvety

Hewn

CeramaPANEL Hewn has a rough, structured surface – as if hewn from natural stone. This appearance will add a mineral, naturally and subtly eroded surface finish to your facade, as if it were built using natural materials – for instance, naturally aged sandstone.

The sandblasted surface will also give your facade a dynamically changing appearance throughout the day depending on external light and viewing angle.

Just like the CeramaPANEL Raw, it is a through colour fibre cement with no need to seal edges or other cuts. With strong dirt, stain and water-repellent properties, as well as their resistance to all kinds of weather conditions it is a virtually maintenance-free facade with exceptional durability.

Groove

CeramaPANEL Groove gets its name from its unique grooved surface.​

The lineal groove in its surface creates a play of light and shadow and will give your facade a dynamically changing appearance throughout the day depending on external light and viewing angle.

Just like the other CeramaPANEL colour through boards, it is a through colour fibre cement with no need to seal edges or other cuts. With strong dirt, stain and water-repellent properties, as well as their resistance to all kinds of weather conditions it is a virtually maintenance-free facade with exceptional durability.

Infuse

CeramaPANEL Infuse boards are unique as they’re the same colour all the way through, it’s although the core has been infused with the same vibrant yet resilient colour of the painted surface!

This means when you choose CeramaPANEL Infuse boards to provide a facade with a particular colour, every board will feature that colour on every surface and edge, and with the same colour on the edges of any cut-outs or drilled holes.

The range includes 18 intense colours incorporating the most popular shades with some accents for highlighting your facade, offering a long-lasting facade solution for creative designers.

Depth

CeramaPANEL Depth facade boards combine the natural characteristics of the through coloured fibre cement with the extremely durable clear topcoat. The colour added to the fibre cement reveals and highlights the fibres and other raw materials that provide its strength and character. The extremely durable clear coating then protects the board and ensures a smooth surface with a long service life.
