Ventilated Facades

EASY INSTALLATION AND VERSATILITY IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

 

GammaStone AIR is the most important technological challenge in the international industry of ventilated facades and its the result of huge R&D investments together with the skilled work of expert teams of Architects, engineers, and designers. Our continuous team work for the improvement of innovative and revolutionary building systems with the aim of harmonizing the aesthetic charm with the best results from the technical and functional point of view. GammaStone AIR is an advanced eco-sustainable system able to satisfy the most ambitious and modern stylistic trends of architecture. It also optimizes the functional requirements, the practicality and the comfort of living. Our ventilated façades, resulted from an intense research process, are an answer to the widespread need of efficient thermal and acoustic isolation for homes, work environments, etc., with structures and materials that at the same time, guarantee an unalterable aesthetic beauty. GammaStone AIR is an excellent and unmatched cladding material; it is today the most suitable material available in the international market referring to ventilated façades.

This innovative paneling system for ventilated façades was developed in collaboration with the largest and most reliable companies in the sector. Together with our partners we reached top results referring to insulation, protection from weather events and from external noises. GammaStone AIR panels allow easy installation, versatility in architectural design, original stylistic solutions with a high variety of large-sized marble, granite, porcelain slabs and stonework. Structurally speaking, GammaStone AIR ventilated façades are reliable; our panels undergo strict tests against wind, compression, hurricanes, etc. They are installed on a metal hanging structure fixed to the wall of the building with layers of insulation and protection materials are assembled within.

 

THERMO-FLUID DYNAMIC SYSTEM (CHIMNEY EFFECT)

 

The suspension and the fixing devices of the metal structure are dimensioned so that an empty space between the insulating layer and the outer panel is created. This is an air chamber connected to the outside by air vents that are usually placed at the base and at the top of the façade creating a continuous ventilation effect in the gap. I

t is also called “chimney effect” due to the difference in temperature between the air in the ventilation chamber and the outside air. Air enters the gap from the bottom and moves upwards, thus creating an efficient airflow that maximize the transpiration of the façade.

This ventilation allows the rapid elimination of aqueous vapors from the inside. Moreover, it considerably reduces the condensation and the negative effects of any penetrations of water. This led consequently to the reduction of the quantity of heat that enters or exits from the building.

VENTILATED FACADE SYSTEM WITH HIDDEN HOOK

 

The GammaStone AIR Ventilated System with mechanically fixed concealed hangers offers maximum design and highest safety. This system eliminates any visible fixing device on the panel surface, which results in a clean façade with the smallest joint possible. At the same time it guarantees the highest safety as the system is certified to resist negative wind loads over 450 kg/sqm.
