Installation of a ventilated facade made of natural stone.


Ventilated facade – consists of several parts.

  • The supporting frame of the ventilated facade. Aluminum frame, which is attached to the wall of the building with aluminum brackets or stainless steel brackets. The frame consists of vertical and horizontal profiles onto which slabs made of granite, travertine, marble are fastened with clamps.
  • insulation. Mineral, stone wool with a coating protecting from the wind is used for wall insulation.
  • Finishing plates. They are classified as facing materials made of natural stone. For a ventilated facade, it is advisable to use a slab of at least 30 mm in thickness. The type of installation of a stone slab depends on its size and weight. The main types are fastening a stone under a hairpin, a fastening with a cut in the end part of a stone or fastening with anchor bolts to the back wall of a stone. We have listed the hidden types of fastening of stone slabs. There is also a visible fastening of the plates.

Between the heater and the stone slab there must be a distance of at least 40 mm for air circulation, so that when moisture gets between the plates and the heater, the ascending flows will dry it.

One of the main advantages of the ventilated facade is the reduction in heat transfer of the building between the load-bearing wall and slabs made of natural stone. As a result, savings in heating the building. In the summer, when using a ventilated stone facade, the heating of the main wall is reduced, which allows you to create a pleasant microclimate in the building and save on room cooling. Also, the ventilated facade protects and reduces the passage of noise into the building, which increases sound insulation characteristics.

Ventilated facade system allows the use of marble, granite, travertine.

Marble .

Although the facade of marble will definitely emphasize the status of the building and its owner. There are chemistry (impregnation) for the surface of the marble, which will extend the operation of this type of stone on the facade. Marble is widely used for decorating floors, walls, steps inside a building.
