Ventilated Façades

A ventilated façade is a layered construction consisting of cladding, a supporting sub-structure, a ventilation cavity and insulation. The unique characteristic of the ventilated façade is that heated air rises in the ventilation cavity drawing cool air from below and venting hot air at the top. This natural airflow removes moisture away from the inner wall and moderates temperature.

Ventilated façades are used to protect buildings against combined effects of wind and rain. It also has combined benefits of high-level aesthetics as well as sound proofing and advantages of heat insulation.

FAQ

What are the acoustic properties of cavity insulation?

 

Using ROCKWOOL Cavity or ROCKWOOL Energysaver to fully fill a separating blockwork cavity wall can help to reduce flanking sound within the cavity space. This is an effective treatment for addressing speech, television and general living noise, and will typically boost performance by around 3 - 8 dB
