Exterior façades: standards and environment
The use of Italian ceramic tiles in exterior building renovation improves both aesthetics and performance.
From a regulatory standpoint, most of the requirements that must be followed when designing an effective, safe and long-lasting anchoring system are set out in the standard UNI EN 11018:2003 “Claddings and anchoring systems for mechanically assembled ventilated façades. Instructions for design, installation and maintenance”.
Considerations of an aesthetic, economic, energy and performance nature underpin the growing demand for installation of ventilated façades. Although a wide variety of materials can be used, Italian ceramic tiles are the ideal solution given their characteristics of flexibility, aesthetics, inertia, sustainability and durability.
