Ventilated Fascade

A new design model that is quickly gaining popularity is the ventilated façade. It makes use of a double enclosed structure which is distant from each other so as to generate an air chamber. This creates a chimney effect and improves both acrostic and thermal insulation of the building thereby increasing its overall energy efficiency. The above-mentioned Chimney effect works as a product of the density difference between air and the gas that is around it the ventilated facade provides the thermal stability by acting as a heat accumulator. The structure is created using porcelain tiles which is extremely resistant towards weathering and has an incredible dimensional stability as well. The dimension of the porcelain tile is 3.5 millimetre.
