  • 6Ventilated facadeOriginated in Scandinavia centuries ago, the ventilated facade (rainscreen) technique is now very prominent in areas with demanding climatic conditions.In the terracotta rainscreen system, the outer tile deflects rain and sun heat away from the building. The ventilation space allows air to freely circulate behind the tile, creating a well ventilated and comfortable inner building.

    VersatilityThe ventilated facade construction principle combines the scalability of curtain wallconstruction with the creative versatility and adaptability offered by traditional buildingtechniques.

    Less is moreA ventilated facade system has minimal thickness and weight, yet it offers maximum performance.

    HealthyThe ventilated facade construction principle avoids cold bridges, eliminating condensation and mould growth.
