Our manufacturing units are equipped with cutting edge technology. A zero chance of error and intense automation are some of the reasons why Torino Tiles is a leader in the industry. These processes are supervised by experts who have vast industry knowledge and experience.
The ventilated facade system is currently the most complete synthesis of the characteristics that exterior walls must have in order to ensure well-being inside a building. The primary function of the system is indeed to protect the building from weathering and particularly from the infi ltration of rainwater into the building walls, which is the main cause of deterioration. Spacing out the cladding slabs from the wall also creates a ventilated air gap which, combined with the action of an insulating layer applied on the building walls, considerably improves the building’s thermal effi ciency. Further important advantages of the system include the dispersion of water vapour through the walls, the improvement of soundproofi ng as well as the reduction of maintenance operations and the possibility to punt some fi ttings outside the building. The fl exibility of the system lends itself to both new building construction and the renovation of old buildings. This system is an excellent means for the latter, as it helps improving the quality of the existing building. Also in terms of composition, the ventilated facade offers new expressive possibilities by mixing and matching of different
The Construction System
The ventilated wall is a complex construction system developed in accordance with industrial design criteria. Every detail must be examined and defi ned in advance to avoid the need for substantial modifi cations while the works are already in progress. The system is anchored to the building walls, which act as the support, and involves "superimposed" layers comprising:
Between the insulation and the facing, an air gap is thus created which, by means of a "chimney effect", sets up effective natural ventilation, ensuring signifi cant benefi ts related to the removal of heat and moisture.
The squaring and grinding in a single manufacturing process (single calibre) to which are put all of Torino high-tech materials, regardless of finish, guarantee not only constant quality in terms of the finished products’ dimensions (vastly simplifying the design and processing of all the tiles) but also enable the combination of different surfaces and materials. This standard of quality also permits modular installation in the many sizes, aided moreover by the uniform thickness of the various materials (single thickness).
The infinite forms and shapes, the option of creating graphical elements with hydrojet and chromatic laser-cutting technology, the sheer variety of ornamental features and an endless range of special parts offer almost unlimited possibilities for customizing all commercial premises, no matter how large, busy, refined or exclusive.
