Modern construction has come to understand that a facade, as part of an overall building envelope, is not only a visual statement, but also an important influencer in the protection of a wall’s structural components, the energy efficiency of the building and the health of its occupants. A carefully designed building envelope can make a new building work more effectively for its owners, its occupants and the environment, as well as transform the appearance and performance of an existing structure.
Dekton by Cosentino is an ultra-compact surface made from over 20 different minerals. Because of Dekton's Unique properties, it is both heat and stain resistant — perfect for a ventilated facade. It is a high-performance solution for building enclosures which takes advantage of mechanical anchoring elements. Through connections between the cladding material and the mechanical assembly, design loads are effectively transferred back to the structural wall, providing a safe and secure facade.
