Resysta and Ventilated Facades: Ensuring Building Longevity

Discover the benefits of using Resysta for rear-ventilated facades and curtain walls. In this article, we will explore how this innovative material can improve the performance and efficiency of your building, while protecting it from moisture damage.

What is a rear-ventilated facade or curtain wall? It is a non-load-bearing cladding system that is attached to the load-bearing wall at a distance. The primary function of this system is to protect the building structure from rain, snow, sun, condensation, and strong winds. Unlike airtight facades, it is designed with ventilation openings to allow moisture to escape from the walls.

One of the key advantages of using Resysta for rear-ventilated facades is its ability to prevent moisture accumulation in the walls. Moisture trapped within a wall void can lead to rot, mold, and structural damage. By allowing moisture to dissipate, Resysta helps keep the building dry and free from these issues.

In addition to moisture control, Resysta also contributes to regulating temperature and humidity within the building envelope. Air circulation behind the facade helps maintain a more even and comfortable indoor climate, enhancing indoor air quality and occupant comfort.

Moreover, proper ventilation plays a crucial role in the overall energy performance of the building. By incorporating natural ventilation through the circulation of air behind the Resysta facade, you can significantly reduce the dependency on mechanical heating and cooling systems. This not only reduces energy consumption but also lowers running costs, making your building more sustainable and cost-effective.

In summary, Resysta is the ideal choice for rear-ventilated facades and curtain walls. With its ability to prevent moisture damage, regulate temperature and humidity, and enhance energy efficiency, Resysta ensures the longevity and performance of your building.
