Assessment of efficiency, quality and reliability of cladding materials for hinged ventilated facades

A. A. Konstantinova, Irkutsk National Research Technical University, V. V. Peshkov

Abstract: Hinged ventilated facade systems can be used to protect buildings from damaging effects and to achieve various designing and structural goals. The study aims to analyse the most common facing construction materials for the installation of hinged ventilated facades. The question of selecting an optimal facing material is relevant for both building owners, building designers and building residents, since it is the facade that sets the tone for the rest of the building. The present study considers the standard design of the ventilated facade, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of existing fac-ing materials for ventilated facades. A comparative analysis of the characteristics of facing materials is carried out. It is noted that the building can be faced by expensive materials, yet having inferior tech-nical characteristics, or relatively inexpensive materials, yet performing their main functions. In addition to aesthetic properties, the facing material should perform the protection of both the facade walls and the subsystem (metal) components, including insulation. In the conclusion, the authors describe the facing material with the most optimal characteristics among those studied in the paper.
