Eurohabitat, Ventilated facade system
EUROHABITAT self-supporting leafIt is in charge of resisting the efforts due to the own weight of all the elements of the façade and the wind load. The ribs of said bearing sheet are placed towards the outside, eliminating the vertical battens, and in some cases the horizontal ones, to fix the external coating. In addition, the interior of its body allows the passage of vertical conduits.There are two systems depending on the tray used, Eurohabitat 150 and Eurohabitat 80, and the choice depends on the modulation of the openings in the façade, the mechanical resistance and the insulation thickness that needs to be included inside the tray.
They are the joining elements of the self-supporting sheet to the angular, and of the trays that make up the self-supporting sheet between them.
In design and execution
A faster installation compared to other traditional systems has an impact on:
- A reduction in indirect construction costs
- A reduction in the time in which collective protection measures are installed, and therefore a reduction in their cost.
- A reduction in the entry period for work inside the building.
A lower weight of the façade compared to other traditional systems has an impact on:
- A reduction in the load-bearing structure in the building design
In use of the buildingSystem with GI5 degree of impermeability, maximum according to DB-HS of the technical code.Airtight system.Increase in the useful area of the building due to the installation of the bearing sheet on the outside of the edge of the slab.In the case of a ventilated façade, reduction of energy costs to maintain thermal comfort.
