Abstract

The component that is presented here, provisionally named “ISOPARETE”, was developed by a workgroup of Politecnico di Milano, under the supervision of Ettore Zambelli, and by two Italian industries: Brianza Plastica and Aderma. “ISOPARETE” is a new component that was studied and optimised through an integrated research program. Its aim was to make simpler, safer and cheaper the installation of ventilated façade cladding in new construction and rehabilitation works. Ventilated cladding can help saving energy, give a good control of the thermo-hygrometric behaviour of the façade, and can correct some building pathologies of existing buildings. Anyway, their use at a large scale is slowed down by higher costs, if compared to traditional solutions. The new component is fit for use under all of the cladding types that can be used on façades (terracotta, fibre-cement, ceramics, metal, etc., each with different weight, installation procedure and dimensions). The research program transformed an existing component for ventilated roof, adapting it for use on vertical surfaces. The experimentation is ending with the application of “ISOPARETE” in two case studies: one is a new building for youngsters with social problems in Lodi, designed by Politecnico di Milano; the other is the rehabilitation of a two-family house in Besana Brianza (near Milano). The component will be marketed after the results of these tests will be evaluated.
