Ventilated Façade

Through porcelain extrusion technology, we make the efficient, sustainable and healthy ventilated ceramic façade for your project a reality

Faveker® is a manufacturer of extrusion ceramic ventilated façade systems, with applications in both renovation, new construction and unique projects. Achieving more sustainable buildings, therefore, more efficient and more comfortable, thanks to the greater thermal and acoustic insulation, in addition to providing the building with materials that are healthy for people and for the environment, 100% recyclable systems and with a minimum of 40 % of recycled in its manufacture. Our porcelain ceramic pieces manufactured by extrusion, verified from the reception of raw materials to packaging under rigorous quality controls, are a high-resistance product, with no maintenance required.

 

Faveker® is the division for facades of Gres de Aragón, with nearly 80 years in the construction sector. We work meticulously and efficiently, collaborating on projects from the start with architectures and engineering for optimal execution.

 

FAVEKER® 6R Concept

Recyclable and recycled: Sustainable materials, 100% recyclable and with a minimum recycled content of 40%. We promote circular economies.

Resistance: porcelain pieces manufactured by extrusion with spans between supports of up to 1,200 mm.

Reduction in consumption and emissions: the increased insulation provided by the system allows significant savings in the building's primary energy demand.

Respect for the environment: The recyclable nature, the recycled content, the reduction of emissions thanks to the decrease in energy demand, make our materials environmentally friendly.

Rehabilitation: We have standard part heights and lengths that allow modulating renovations, improving the exterior appearance and energy performance of buildings.

Reduction of pathogens: Thanks to the Bioklinker® treatment, anti-pathogenic properties are added to the ventilated facades of FAVEKER®, helping to sanitize spaces.

 

VENTILATED FAÇADE

ESTHETICS, SAVING AND COMFORT 

 

The concept of a ventilated façade refers to a constructive solution that allows the exterior of a building to be clad. Its main function is the physical separation between the interior and exterior environment of the building.

It involves adapting the building to sustainable building, which provides a series of improvements such as: greater energy savings and a reduction in maintenance costs.

The objective is that the rehabilitated buildings with ventilated facade approach the new demands of the CTE and, with this, ensure that the owners have greater comfort and savings in the home.

 

 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The ventilated façade guarantees an improvement of the thermal insulation of the building, since it allows to install continuous insulators between the external support of the supporting wall and the exterior cladding of the façade. The cladding of the ventilated facade protects the supporting structure, the thermal insulation and the substructure of the climatic in fl uences, since it is resistant to rain.

 

In summer, the sun shines directly on the floor and not on the building, heats the air in the chamber, decreases its density and convection rises, with fresh air taking its place. This is the phenomenon called “the chimney”, which prevents the accumulation of calories in the facade. The thermal insulation provides additional protection against atmospheric agents.
In winter other factors come into play, since solar radiation is not enough to achieve these air movements. In this case the facade acts as a heat accumulator, helping the air chamber to the thermal stability of the system. The thermal insulator provides a maximum thermal accumulation of the interior components that prevents the loss of heat inside the building.

Elimination of thermal bridges

The ventilated facades allow thecorrection of the thermal bridges producing an energetic saving when eliminating the contact between corbels and walls.

Elimination of condensations

The external bearing walls and insulation always remain dry and, therefore, fully preserve their function. The impact rain that could have been filtered through open joints will dry quickly due to the circulation of air in the ventilation space.

 

  

WHY CERAMICS? WHY FAVEKER?

Apart from the advantages (savings,comfort, efficiency) that it brings to install a ventilated façade, its performance can still be improved by using the outer skin of ceramic material, and to a greater extent in the case of ceramic material produced by means of of extrusion.

 

 

01.

Durability and resistance

without change in its properties,

a material that lasts over time

without being affected by

climatic factors (humidity, wind,

solar radiation...).

02.

Aesthetic possibilities,

thanks to the advanced

decoration technology in the

ceramic sector, including those

with digital printing, you can get

many finishes of the highest

quality and durability

03.

Increase in insulation

both thermal and acoustic

since it protects the insulator,

being able to use more specific

materiasl that would not resist

to the elements

 

04.

Light and clean,

light ceramic material

compared to other

commonly used and easy

maintenance materials

 

 

 

The main advantages of FAVEKER® systems combine the advantages of ceramic ventilated façade systems and also offer additional benefits:

  • Concealed anchoring systems, with horizontal joint overlap, thus allowing breathability but protecting against moisture and water.
  • Registered systems, most systems can be disassembled to perform repairs on the skin or behind the skin of the facade without breaking pieces or disassembling large cloths. Simply remove the desired piece or pieces and put them back on.
  • Sustainable systems by definition, we use up to 30% recycled in the manufacture of ceramic pieces and the pieces can be 100% recycled, both the byproducts of the process and, in the future, the own ceramic pieces. Committed to the environment, Gres Aragon was the first Spanish company to obtain a double European recognition (Global EPD and ECOPlatform) of its DAP certified by AENOR.
  • We have several thicknesses, from the light 18 mm to the thick ones of 30 mm.
  • They are manufactured with porcelain clays offering water absorption equal to or less than 0.5%.
  • The plates are manufactured by extrusion and have an internal cellular structure that offers resistance and lightness.

 

In summary, the FAVEKER® ceramic ventilated façade thermal envelope systems contribute to the SAVINGS, ENERGY EFFICIENCY, SUSTAINABILITY, COMFORT, HABITABILITY, AESTHETIC, RESISTANCE AND DURABILITY projects.
