Installation of ventilated curtain wall facades

Ventilated faÇade solutions

Optimise your design, speed-up your installation

From design through to construction, find out how our team can support you with your next ventilated façade project.


Cost-effective, efficient and compliant design

Energy-saving regulations are often a key factor when designing the optimum build-up and selecting the right substructure can have a big impact. We can support you with everything you require from planning, through to the selection and installation of your façade; with our complete range of systems including a passive-house certified thermal bridge-free solution.

Whatever panel system you are working with, whether it be A1 rated metal cassettes or natural materials, we have a cost-optimised solution designed to meet your requirements. 

Now, with the introduction of the new Hilti Fox-VI small bracket, we can further optimise the design with a potential saving of up to 20% across the total value of a typical project. This will not only have an impact on the overall cost of the build but also the volume of raw material required to complete the build.

Why the right design is crucial

Building energy efficiency ranking

The trend in construction is towards increased thermal requirements and achieving low U-values, reducing insulation thickness. What does this mean for the selection of the substructure and the usable space within the building? Click below for more information.
