Ventilated facades

Italgraniti suggests the use of its porcelain slabs, in the various standard and submultiple sizes, as covering elements for ventilated facades. The weight of the system and the effects of wind are the main parameters to be considered when assessing the feasibility of a ventilated facade. These covering systems allow the creation of attractive works both on new buildings and during renovation projects, optimising heat and noise insulation.

All Italgraniti Group Project Department systems can be used on both new and existing buildings, the latter to improve the thermal/ aesthetic characteristics of the building.

There are two main types of system, depending on the type of mounting used:

  • Systems with visible anchoring
  • Systems with hidden anchoring
