Ventilated facade installation systems

Did you know that... a ventilated facade requires unobstructed, continuous air flow for proper performance?

  • The air flow cavity behind the panel must be a minimum of 1" (25mm) . Note that national or local regulations must be respected (refer to certificates).
  • Leave a minimum opening of 3/4" (20mm) at the top and bottom part of the façade, as well as at door and window openings. This is critical to ensure required air flow .
  • The subframing used to create the air flow cavity must be installed in a vertical direction. If conditions require horizontal channels, the percentage of openess is directly related to the channel depth. Perforations must allow 3/4" (20mm) minimum air flow.
