vertical thermal insulation
More thermally efficient
SAF’ACADE is an innovative spray-on insulation material composed of randomly oriented non-metallic fibres with a wool-like consistency.
This new material contains a significant proportion of alkali oxides and silicon-earth oxides, and has a melting point greater than 1000 degrees Celsius.
SAF’ACADE has European Technical Assessment (ETA)approval as well as CE marking which guarantees compliance with EU directives, and the conformance of manufacturing with the fundamental quality standards and regulations (health, safety and environmental protection).
15% BETTER INSULATION THAN APPLIED PANELS
NON-COMBUSTIBILITY RATED ABOVE A1
SAF’ACADE is a spray-applied insulationmaterial that is much quicker to installthaninsulation panels, offering 50% higher productivity.
SAF’ACADE is more thermally efficient than applied panels because there is no thermal bridging between panels, and no fasteners. 15% increase in thermal resistance.
SAF’ACADE is rated A+(in France) for volatile organic compounds (VOCs); it is also hydrophobic and resistant to water vapour and humidity.
SAF’ACADE is resistant to corrosion, mould and bacteria, and does not undergochemical phase-change.
Visible fixing systems for ventilated façades
With this system, the technical ceramic cladding panels are fixed to the load-bearing structure of the ventilated façade by means of clips resting on the outside of the cladding and which are therefore visible. The structure comprisesbrackets fixed to the wall by chemical or mechanical anchors, depending on the type of wall.The thermal insulation material is sprayed onto the wall mechanically and covers all the surfaces to beinsulated. The vertical uprightsare also fireproofed by the application of the SAF’ACADEmaterial.
Invisible fixing systems for ventilated façades
With this system, the technical ceramic cladding panels are fixed to the metal structure by means of clips mounted on the back of the panels which are therefore completely invisible. The system comprises brackets fixed to the wall with chemical or mechanical anchors, depending on the type of wall.Ventilated façades fall into two categories: those with visible fixings and those with invisible fixings.The invisible fixing system offers aesthetic advantages because the outer fixings are hidden from view.
Techniques used in ventilated façades
The technical ceramic panels used on the ventilated façade are exclusively large-format panels in manufactured marble, granite, stone or slate.The final cost will depend on the range of surface areas of the panel:–The smaller the panel, the more fixings will be required which will in turn increase the cost of materials and installation.–For systems with invisible fixings, the larger the panel, the lower the price per meter for the work to be carried out and consequently the overall project costs will be lower.
