Discover Porcelanosa’s Innovative Facade Solutions
Porcelanosa has developed some of the most advanced solutions in facade designs. With Porcelanosa’s facade systems, users can choose from a vast selection of panels created from Porcelanosa’s porcelain tiles, XLIGHT and Urbatek tiles, natural stone slabs, and KRION® Solid Surface material to create their idealized building exterior. Learn more about the different types of facades that Porcelanosa has to offer below:
Porcelain Ventilated Facades
A ventilated facade features a cladding system with an air cushion or cavity immediately behind it that provides with a drainage, ventilation and thermal solution for the facade. The external cladding system is usually made up of mechanically fastened or bonded to the framework or to the external wall of a new or existing building. This ventilation allows for an exchange of air between the outside and the cavity behind the cladding panels, providing the solution for venting any moisture away from the facade, improving the thermal conditions inside the building and installing the insulation on the outside so to avoid thermal bridging.
XLIGHT Ventilated Facades
XLIGHT is an innovative brand of extremely thin, large format porcelain tiles. This innovative material’s technical features make XLIGHT the perfect ally for achieving fully integrated designs, allowing for the creation of facades of great beauty. It is available in two size formats, and is reinforced with a fiberglass mesh that enhances the slab’s flexural strength. The large size of this type of porcelain tile, its zero water absorption rate, its resistance to atmospheric agents, and its incredibly light weight and thinness make the XLIGHT slabs an excellent solution for all types of facades.
KRION® Ventilated Facades
KRION® is Porcelanosa’s revolutionary solid surface material. KRION® is made out of a unique formula that is high in mineral content, and can be used to create anything. KRION® surfaces have high resistance to temperatures, impact, and chemical agents. They are also easy to clean and maintain – making KRION® ideal for the most demanding applications. Unlike other materials used professionally, KRION® can be injected, thermo-cut, machined, and glued together – achieving invisible joints. This property allows designs to freely incorporate functionality and ergonomics criteria that would be otherwise difficult to obtain.
