‘Cladding’ is the application of one material over another to provide a skin or layer. In construction, cladding is used to provide some thermal insulation and weather resistance, as well as to improve the aesthetics of buildings.
A ventilated façade is a construction method whereby a physical separation is created between the outside of the façade and the interior wall of the building. This separation creates an open cavity allowing the exchange of the air contained between the wall and the outer cladding.
There are many options of cladding materials on the market to suit different needs and styles, such as woods, metals and bricks, but porcelain has become a popular choice amongst architects around the globe.
Grespania Coverlam facts about porcelain ventilated facades!
- UV Resistant - Porcelain is resistant to UV rays meaning its appearance and colour will not be affected.
- Weather Resistant - Porcelain is heat and frost resistant, making it a durable option for both hot and cold climates.
- Waterproof - The air cavity means that water will not be able to penetrate through to the internal wall.
- Energy Saving – The enhanced thermoregulation aids in making buildings more energy efficient.
Internal heat flow: Laying insulation on the exterior part of the wall and the floor structure prevents thermal bridges across the entire façade. Heat loss towards the outside in winter is blocked, as is the heat coming from the outside in summer, resulting in energy savings of between 15% and 35%, both in terms of heating and air conditioning.
External heat flow: In addition, laying insulation on the exterior part of the wall and the floor structure provides the building with greater thermal mass. This increases the building’s thermal inertia, thus generating significant energy savings and producing a more comfortable ambience . The wall tile acts as a screen, reflecting a great deal of the solar radiation and preventing it from entering the building.

Any S2 flexible adhesive. Full bed required, back butter the tile to help achieve full coverage on Grespania Coverlam tiles.
Please Note: If tiling above 3 meters high you must mechanically fix the tile and contruction boards are the best substrate to fix these tiles to the wall.
Installation Of External Cladding Tiles:
Cladding the outer wall of a building with a ventilated façade system is the most effective construction method for resolving key problems relating to damp and thermal insulation and for improving the acoustic insulation index of the building, without sacrificing the aesthetics of the finishes. A ventilated facade works by creating a physical gap between the outside of the façade and the interior wall of the building.
The air in that cavity heats up and the difference in density between the air in the cavity and the air outside generates a natural flow of air from the bottom towards the top. The impact of this phenomenon is greater at times when the building is subjected to long hours of intense sunshine. At such times, part of the thermal radiation is reflected by the cladding and the part which penetrates into the air cavity is eliminated thanks to the air renewal caused by the flow of air. The ventilated facade consists of the following elements: Cladding: Defines the outer face of the façade and is made up of ceramic tiles.
Fixing system: A set of resistant elements that transmit forces received by the cladding to the support. Insulation: Located on the exterior side of the supporting wall. Support (walls, slab, etc.): Resistant structural element located on the interior side of the façade which transmits the forces the facade withstands to the structure of the building. Air chamber: The cavity formed by the separation between the Cladding and the Insulation.
The air cavity within the ventilated facade system offers various advantages: thermal, acoustic, aesthetic and functional benefits all create substantial added value to the project.
