Title: VENTILATED FACADE WITHOUT A FRAME AND WITH AN INTERMEDIATE FOLDED SHEET FORMING RIBS
Abstract:
The ventilated facade, without a frame and with an intermediate folded sheet forming ribs, is characterised by including an intermediate folded sheet, which acts as a reinforcing element and functions to support the elements forming the facade. The sheet is folded forming ribs both on the inside and on the outside, following modulations suitable for being able to secure the finishing material of the exterior and for the transmission of loads (its own weight and horizontal actions) to the structure of the building via intermittent securing elements located on the slab edge. This solution improves upon existing solutions because: a) the folded sheet eliminates the need to include a frame to support the facade; b) same permits the securing of the rest of the elements forming the facade; c) same permits the establishment of a modulation on the inside that is the same as or different from the outside; and d) same improves the behaviour and increases the resilience during and after an extreme event.
