Cladding & Facades

A building’s envelope must be able to withstand the forces of the local environment and facilitate efficient maintenance. For a successful envelope design, there are four key elements that ensure a high-performance façade.

The latest emerging materials in facades were discussed at an international conference series on facade design and engineering, where developers and authorities were urged to take stringent measures to save energy and avert fatal fires.

Sommer Informatik of Germany has modified its proven WinIso software solution for thermal calculation of windows and facades in construction to meet the revised EN ISO 10077-2:2017 standard.
