Visual appeal, resistance and durability
Tile-clad ventilated façades add to the durability and visual appeal of buildings like the recently clad head office of Grupo Gil Comes in Vinarós (Castellón).
59.6x120cm AVENUE White Nature through-body porcelain tiles by URBATEK were used for the façade, mounted using a mechanical fastening system by Butech that allows façades to be clad with large-format ceramic tiles in safe, optimum style.
When they are used on façades, through-body porcelain tiles create a long-lasting, durable, waterproof building envelope with a superb resistance to atmospheric and chemical agents and an up-to-date, modern appearance. The AVENUE collection, which was chosen for the head office of Grupo Gil Comes, is one of Porcelanosa Grupo’s most popular choices for façades, thanks to its numerous formats and finishes. A versatile, easily adaptable choice, it can be used on façades and on projecting sections of balconies or lintels, thus allowing the whole building to be clad in ceramic tiles.
Butech, the specialist in building solutions, and URBATEK, the manufacturer of large-format through-body porcelain tiles and Xlight slimline sheets, carry out ongoing joint research into the development of façade systems. Porcelanosa Grupo takes advantage of the joint experience of its companies to offer unbeatable building solutions that stand out for their cutting-edge mechanical and technical performance.
