VENTILATED ETNA BASALT FACADES

F.lli LIZZIO S.r.l. - Etna Basalt Lava Stone Factory as Manufacturers

Let's examine this technique. We would like to show you the design of the Hotel Esperia, by Studio SCAU by Angelo Vecchio Architect, the founder. Angelo Vecchio is definitely among the top creative Sicilian who has taken this modern technology in their projects. Author of several interventions, a man of great preparation and culture, Angelo has always operated with full knowledge and experience, shaping their own projects in the surrounding environment. In the field of modern style, today it is impossible regardless of the talk about the "curtain walls". The "lava stone walls" are now an established construction model, that thanks to its technical characteristics, isolate and protect the buildings, in addition to a greater reduction of heat loss. The "Lava walls" that we manufacture, offer to designers the ability, in a single solution, to build the building and allow the total energy savings. This process involves the application of a particular lava stone covering perimeter slabs with a minimum thickness of cm. 1 (10 mm), the pose which is dry on the external surface of the building under construction, does not adhere to the curtain wall, but it is spaced to form a cavity; basalt slabs are laid in place with the aid of anchoring devices and mechanical fasteners. The development of the suspension system concealed in the facade, by performing factory of continuous grooves on the coasts of the horizontal stone (kerf simple, continuous low kerf, continuous inclined kerf) allows the support plate without vision of the metal substructure, which instead is firmly anchored to support structure of the building. Simplicity is best guaranteed by the use of the lava rock, whose notes technical characteristics and durability, are undoubtedly superior to any other stone material, especially as regards the acoustic characteristics and especially thermal fact Etna basalt not subjected to any kind of deformation, also in the presence of thermal changes of + or - 50 degrees. Multiple finally, are the possible surface treatments: traditional polished, shiny, striped satin and antique style, in various ways that make the surfaces aesthetically pleasing. A separate chapter requires the description of the ceramic coated finish, where the stone that form the panels of ventilated facades, is glazed and recast at very high temperatures; with this process the glazes are welded to the surfaces of the plates, as happens for ceramic products, giving rise to the stove on volcanic rock. The result is a precious artifact that allows designers to free their creativity in order to implement any idea, color or effect they want to give to the project of the building, leaving their mark on it indelible.
