There are multiple advantages of using Metal-like facades compared to those made of real metal. Metal-like facades made from porcelain can be extremely advanced, thanks to modern technology. Facade systems comprise the structural elements that provide lateral and vertical resistance to wind and other actions and the building envelope elements that provide the weather resistance and thermal, acoustic, and fire-resisting properties. They can be ventilated, or double-skinned. They can be unbelievably attractive, elegant, and visually more aesthetically pleasing than just plain metal.
What Is an Exterior Metal-Like Facades System?
A facade system is a cladding system that leaves a ventilated chamber between the cladding and the insulation, thus eliminating thermal bridging and condensation problems. This achieves outstanding thermal behavior and reduces humidity.It is therefore considered the most effective system in terms of solving the building’s insulation and enjoys widespread acceptance among architects, developers, and builders.
By smartly linking the exterior to the interiors of the building, a facade controls light penetration or filtration, regulates heat, and minimizes solar gain; all this, in turn, leads to more energy-efficient buildings which achieve solar shading and passive cooling automatically.
When Functionality Meets Design
A building facade also offers an opportunity to emphasize design. Many buildings meet the structural regulations but in return settle for standard designs and lack identity, character, and personality. A facade can play a huge role in this as it imparts uniqueness to the structure which lacks that something special. A facade is used when an easier or simpler interface to an underlying object is desired. Alternatively, an adapter can be used when the wrapper must respect a particular interface and must support polymorphic behavior. A decorator makes it possible to add or alter the behavior of an interface at run-time.
The Downside Of Using Real Metal For Exterior Paneling
Not using facades will lead to many problems, especially when using metal. It can become extremely worrisome because many problems can arise using metal. Metal will eventually begin to rust and corrode. Corrosion is a natural process that converts a refined metal into a more chemically stable oxide. It is the gradual destruction of materials by chemical or electrochemical reactions with their environment.
Insulation is also a problem with metal, which can be resolved with porcelain, metal-like facades. They would be almost impossible to insulate. The only way to insulate a metal box is to put it inside another metal box with a vacuum between. Then you need you cut in doors and windows, creating holes in the vacuum, where the inner and outer walls are connected by their frames, providing conductive paths between the inside and outside.
Current steel frame houses are wrapped in insulating panels and have insulation between the studs, and the inside walls are made of insulating materials, sheetrock, wood, etc. Door and window frames are made of wood, fiberglass, resins made with wood fibers, etc. It is a lot of work to maintain and build a house made of metal. Metal is good for framing, but not much use as a surface material. And not at all as an insulator.
Front-tek – leading exterior facades manufacturing
Fron-tek has the most advanced facade system that the world has ever seen. Not only does our product of porcelain facades replace those of metal, it is double ventilated, but Fronteks facade systems are incredibly unique. They were designed to withstand some of the most extreme weather conditions and any other challenges caused by environmental factors that could be harmful or damaging. Fron-tek is not only ICC certified and compliant with international building codes. It is resistant to fire, corrosion, and impact with outstanding wind-load performance.
Fron-tek provides your home with facades that can be installed for every supporting structure. Not only are all of our systems easy to install, but they have also revolutionized the placement of ceramic facades to support the ceramic coating. Frontek allows panels to be easily cut on-site by a diamond blade.
The precision is incredible, keeping durability and strength intact. Frontek’s porcelain is unbelievably strong, not to mention lightweight. They come in a variety of designs, each
Why Choose Metal-Like facades?
Our favorite is metallic. It is avant-garde and gives the appeal of sophistication and class. Modern mechanical fixing systems have revolutionized the concept of ceramic placement on facades. To support the ceramic coating, Front-Tek presents two fully developed and designed anchoring systems. Both systems are incredibly easy to install and differ in the grip mechanism which can be by clamp, Front-Tek Plus, or by horizontal guides., Front-Tek super plus. Fron-tek makes the absolute best tiles and panels for the outside and inside of your buildings, period. The experience accumulated over decades in Front Tek production plants dedicated to the production of high-tech ceramic products has enabled them to position themselves nationally and internationally as a benchmark in the distribution of porcelain, ventilated facades, porcelain stoneware, and klinker products.
Upgrading your dwelling to use exterior facades made of metal-like porcelain is not only an incredible idea but a perfect investment. The comparison of using metal to using metal-like porcelain facades is obviously distinguished. Overall, using, metal can be full of hassle, require too much anxiety and upkeep, and mainly over time it can be ruined by wear and tear. The environment can have horrible effects on metal and need extreme maintenance. On the other hand, in comparison, metal-like facades are better for cost, the environment, and long-term solutions. They are also incredibly visually appealing and can be any design you choose.
