 The façade is one of the essential components of a building, it gives personality to the entire structure and protects it from the weather agents and temperature sudden changes. For these reasons, the choice of material becomes increasingly important. Porcelain stoneware is certainly among the most viable alternatives simply because it succeeds in perfectly combining aesthetics, functionality and durability over time. Thanks to its extraordinary technical and aesthetic properties, today's designers and contractors can offer innovative cladding solutions for the protection of buildings.

 Effective architectonic solutions in porcelain stoneware

Currently stoneware is probably one of the best performing and most resistant materials: it does not warp or alter over time, it does not freeze and is not affected by temperature sudden changes (it provides thermal insulation and protection from weather agents). This also improves energy performance as a result. 

Many designers also choose it because of its great practicality (it can be easily washed and does not require maintenance) and because it allows the entire building to be clad in total safety (the cladding is totally fireproof and does not produce toxic gases in the event of a fire because it does not contain any traces of plastic materials). 

Aesthetics and design of porcelain stoneware façades

Porcelain stoneware tiles allow designers and architects to choose from a wide range of colours. This offers them total freedom of creation, above all because the reproducible textural suggestions (from stone to concrete effect) and the combinations of finishes and sizes allow them to give space to the design vision of the professional, in residential, commercial as well as public buildings.  The resulting colour scheme, innovative design and modularity of the solutions offer unique sensations and provide personality and originality to the entire building.

Stoneware: an environmentally friendly material for façades

So, choosing porcelain stoneware to clad the façade is an architectural solution that looks to the future. In fact, its use offers all the advantages one can expect from a sustainable building material: tiles are produced from natural raw materials, such as sand, clay and feldspars. Stoneware contains no plastic and does not release any organic substances into the environment (it's VOC-free).

Caesar ceramic surfaces can be used by designers and building companies to create ventilated façade systems in buildings . Caesar slabs are able to ensure technical performance at the top of their category, while also offering composition and style freedom.

Thanks to Cover, Caesar ceramic surfaces can be used by designers and building companies to create ventilated façade systems in any building. Also in terms of building sustainability, Caesar now offers, among the first on the market, the possibility of combining the advantages of ventilated walls with those of solar energy production, through the use of photovoltaic panels.

This type of ventilated façade can be obtained without additional processing, as the photovoltaic modules (available in 60x60, 30x120 and 60x120 cm sizes) can be attached to the wall like tiles. With the right choice of colours, effects and thanks to the variety of sizes, the designer enjoys considerable freedom in the realisation of installation patterns with alternating stoneware tiles and photovoltaic modules, minimising visual impact. 

CaesarTech is the division of Ceramiche Caesar at the service of designers and building companies in the choice of the best technical and aesthetic solutions for floor tiling and ventilated façade cladding integrated with photovoltaic panels, an innovative installation system for new buildings and building redevelopment. 

CaesarTech experts ensure reliable and prompt advice regarding any project or need.
