Forest based composites for façades and interior partitions to improve indoor air quality in new builds and restoration

Multi-layered Façade

Over the past few years, the construction industry has begun to use this type of façade as a replacement for traditional brick and mortar. Once assembled, these layered façades meet the same insulation and protection requirements of traditional façades. Typically, the plaster interior of these multi-layered facades are packed between ventilated exteriors. The inner part of the façade is occupied by panels that provide insulation, alongside fire and water protection. The main advantages of the multi-layered façade is its industrialised construction; no water is required in its assembly, allowing installation times to be far shorter.
