The Benefits of Porcelain Ventilated Facades

The facade is one of the most characteristic elements of any building because it is virtually the only part that can be seen from the outside. That is why its design and construction are so important. Porcelanosa has developed a unique facade system that combines the aesthetic elements of design with the functional and technical properties of porcelain. The system can be modified for any project – from small scale projects like residential homes or office buildings to large scale projects such as multifamily homes or high-rise buildings.
