Double-Skin & Ventilated Facades
The concept for a double skin facade is often dictated by acoustic reasons or energy consumption in conjunction with the financial running costs of the facade. Early involvement with facade consultants and building engineers can be provided to establish the form of facade best-suited to meet the particular performance and functionality required.
Generally, several varieties of double skin facades differing in the type of ventilation are possible. Closed cavity facades (CCF) have a quasi-hermetic closed air volume between inner and outer skin. CCF guarantee maximum acoustic as well as thermal performance and enable a continuous usage of sun protection systems, independent from the weather conditions like heavy winds. Furthermore, costs for maintaining the facade can be reduced to those of single skin constructions, which saves lots of money during the life period of the building, compared to other double-skin facades.
