FK-L 1/16 / Ventilated Facade Elements

FK system, horizontal joint panel facade. Vertical open and horizontal overlapping joints system. When installing it, we will constantly check weights and levels. We fix the brackets to the structure with a mechanical anchor, and to the wall using a chemical anchor. The anchors will be the most suitable according to the quality of the wall. We fix the vertical profile to the brackets with steel rivets, so it allows the dilation of the aluminium. To do this, we rivet a fixed point above and the following with mobile points. This pattern is used to place the entire horizontal profile. If, for example, we start right to left, we would fix the first on the right and the following would be mobile. We will always follow this guideline throughout... More

Project • By ULMA Architectural SolutionsHotels

Hotel Ladera

ULMA has participated in the construction of the facade of the Hotel Ladera, awarded the Prix Versailles for facades 2017. The new Hotel Ladera, located in Santiago de Chile, has created an innovative facade with avant-garde design. Part of that design is composed by the ULMA ventilated facade, providing a slate-like appearance to some areas of the building. The earth texture and dark colour were chosen to achieve the stone-like appearance required. This facade system provides greater technical and aesthetic durability and protects against damp and outdoor temperature changes, providing energy savings and creating a healthier environment for the end user. This project is an example of how combinations of various materials and forma... More

Product • By Reynaers AluminiumCW 86-EF

CW 86

CW 86 enables cassette façades to be built using a traditional stick structure (CW 86). It also enables unitised façades (CW 86-EF) to be completely pre-assembled in the workshop that results in a high execution speed on the building site. CW 86 is available in Structural Glazing (SG) and Cassette Glazing (CG). The system enables the motorisation of opening elements such as top hung or parallel opening windows. Different types of windows, doors, sliding systems and brise soleil can be integrated. Different inner and outer colours are possible. More
