At Exagres, we’re extruded porcelain stoneware, extruded stoneware manufacturers and offer technical solutions for global architecture.
Throughout our professional career we have adapted our production processes and market technologies to our current needs to
generate unique and functional materials, transforming traditional processes into modern ones, based on research of habitat trends and design.
All of this allows us to offer high-quality cutting-edge technical and aesthetic solutions that contribute added value to each project.
Exagres, in its desire to continue expanding its catalog of comprehensive technical solutions for construction projects, presents its new range of exa-TECH ventilated façade products .
Exa-TECH consists of a ventilated façade system that is accompanied by a high-performance extruded porcelain ceramic plate, which is compatible with most of the profiling and fixing systems currently on the market.
This construction method breaks out with force to provide projects with a state-of-the-art architectural solution, providing the project with the best performance against the elements and offering a quick, economical, environmentally friendly installation solution with a wide variety of coatings . exteriors for ventilated facades .
What is a ventilated facade?
The ventilated façade is a constructive enclosure solution , equipped with a ventilated chamber between the external cladding plates and the internal support or partition.
The ventilation chamber favors the exit and entry of air through its openings (starting and crowning) as well as between the joints of the panels.
The origin of the ventilated façade system arises from the need to protect buildings against snow and rain , where a double-layer system is proposed, consisting of two enclosing sheets with a separation to form a chamber allowing the circulation of a flow of air that eliminates any type of humidity.
Why use the exa system | TECH | FVH?
The exa-TECH FVH ventilated façade system is a set of elements that form a self-supporting substructure attached to the support where it is installed. The exa-TECH FVH grooved plate models are used to clad the facades using this system.
Characteristics of the ventilated facade
Sustainable architecture, that which favors energy efficiency and the use of environmentally friendly materials, is booming and ventilated facades are made up of a series of basic features and elements that offer a clear advantage in terms of insulation and energy savings. . The basic characteristics and elements that make up a ventilated façade are the following:
Base Material: This is the support on which the ventilated façade system is fixed (it is not part of the system).
Thermal insulation: Covers the inner sheet to improve its thermal and acoustic behavior, also eliminating thermal bridges.
Ventilated air chamber: With a minimum size of 20 mm, thanks to the chimney effect that is produced, it helps the diffusion of the water vapor coming from the interior and the water that can penetrate due to the rain. Substructure:
· Anchors: they are the ventilated façade fixings that connect the system to the base material to transmit loads.
· Corbels:components with a substructure that make it possible to separate the coating from the inner sheet.
· Profiles: longitudinal elements that are fixed to the corbels and support the façade panels.
Fixing system: elements that fix or hold the exterior ventilated facade cladding to the profiles.
Cladding plates: constitutes the external sheet of the façade.
Advantages of the ventilated facade
Installing a ventilated façade implies a series of advantages compared to traditional systems. Here we list the most important ones:
1. Continuous thermal insulation.
2. In summer, the heat absorption by the building is significantly reduced.
3. In winter, the inner leaf acts as an internal heat store.
4. Reduction of condensation and humidity problems thanks to the constant renewal of the air.
5. The outer sheet works as a protective barrier against atmospheric agents (wind, rain…), an effect known as “Rain Screen”.
6. Improvement of sound insulation.
Types of ventilated facades
If we had to classify the types of ventilated facades, we could categorize them according to their material, finish or fixing system. exa-TECH ventilated facades become the best option in the construction and renovation of buildings thanks to their great resistance to UVA rays, high durability and almost zero water absorption. Some of the most used materials or finishes are the following.
Ceramic ventilated facade
The demand for ceramic ventilated facades is increasing. Much of its success is due to the excellent technical characteristics of this material, which provides great hardness and high resistance to adverse weather conditions.
In addition, exa-TECH presents a wide catalog of collections, with a wide variety of finishes that can be adapted to the design and style of homes or buildings, such as ventilated marble facades.
Stone ventilated facade
Another of the most demanded trends are ventilated stone facades . Its rustic and timeless character makes the exa-TECH digital printing collections a success.
Wooden ventilated facade
The authentic character of wood can also be maintained in porcelain wood ventilated façades , combining the warmth of this material with the resistance and durability of ceramic.
Ventilated facade price
Due to its great resistance to breakage and the ease of assembly, this type of ventilated facades adapts to the needs and technical requirements of each project. If you are interested in knowing the price of an exa-TECH ventilated façade, you can contact us by filling in the Contact Form.
exa-TECH offers a wide variety of pieces in different formats and finishes, following the latest trends in architecture.
Various collections are presented in textured colored mass plates, in different shades, with the advantage of having the thickness of the plate in the same tone as the rest of the piece.
In addition, exa-TECH is presented in different types of product, with graphics applied using digital inkjet technology, thus offering products that recreate cement, wood, marble or stone.
