From public to private venues, from industrial to residential contexts, the protection of the building using Atlas Concorde ventilated facades ensures advantages in terms of energy efficiency, structural performance and aesthetic appeal.
FIG. 1 During cold weather, Atlas Concorde porcelain stoneware ventilated facades take a longer time to cool than traditional facades.
FIG. 2 During hot weather, Atlas Concorde porcelain stoneware ventilated facades create a protection against solar rays and keep a constant circulation of air at room temperature.
With Atlas Concorde ventilated facades, it is possible to create perimeter walls with excellent insulation thus allowing for an implementation of the thermal capacity of walls.
There are two main positive effects:
Elimination of thermal bridges
Atlas Concorde ventilated facade creates a correct insulation thanks to the elimination of thermal bridges, that is to say those defects generating mist and mould in the rooms due to cracks or the removal of portions of the facade.
In hot summer months, thanks to the combined action of Atlas Concorde porcelain stoneware external covering that protects the building from solar rays and the constant circulation of air at room temperature, Atlas Concorde ventilated facade creates a “shield” on the building on which the facade is applied, protecting it from excess heat. Thanks to the same effect, during winter, perimeter walls cool down at a slower rate than traditional solutions.
This allows for a considerable living comfort that means:
Energy saving derived from a lower load of airconditioning and heating systems.
Wellness and salubriousness of the space.
The ventilated facade is a building “case” that guarantees excellent results in terms of thermal and hygrometric (moisture) balance.
