Facades with ventilated air gap are applied to improve the energy efficiency of old or new buildings.
Principle of the method consists in making lathwork out of 50x80 (50x50) mm timber beams or a frame out of steel zinc-coating or aluminum profile at a pitch of 600 mm. 8, 10, 12 mm thick plates are used for cladding. Heat insulation materials can be laid between a wall and CBPB. In this case the gap between mineral wool insulator and CBPB shall be not less than 40 mm. 6-8 mm compensated joint is made between cement-bonded particle boards. Joints must be sealed with sealing pads or elastic mastic resin. The joints can stay open or be closed with filler strips made of CBPB, timber, metals, plastic. Ventilated facade installation on a timber frame is allowed for buildings with no more than 3 floors. Particle boards makes up 6-8 mm. Joints must be sealed with sealing pads or elastic mastic resin. The joints can stay open or be closed with filler strips out of CBPB, wood, metal, plastic. Ventilated façade on a wooden frame is allowed for buildings with not more than 3 floors.
