Large format tiles are one of the best options for this cladding system as they are mechanically strong and physically resilient to most of the hardships that deteriorate exterior walls. A study conducted by NASA concluded that a building with this system is up to 35% more energy efficient.
Compared to other materials, porcelain tile offers excellent performance for under-floor heating systems because it allows the whole system to function effectively with a lower water temperature, thus saving energy throughout the system.
Additionally, Italian manufacturers produce ceramic products suitable for ventilated wall facades.
The bottom line benefits of
Ceramic tiles contain no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that release gas prior to, during, or after installation. Products that meet stringent VOC restrictions contribute to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits for a project.
In addition, tiles will not absorb odors from smoke, paint fumes or other contaminants, enhancing indoor air quality. Grout and adhesives, produced by leading Italian manufacturers, offer products that are solvent-free, nonflammable, extremely low-TVOC and low-odor.
Reduced Energy Consumption; Reduced CO2 Emission; Reduced Resource Consumption; Long Lasting Solution.
Better Air Quality; Greener Building (Contributes to LEED Commercial and Residential Standards); Lower CO2 Footprint.
Reduced Energy Bills; Longer Life Cycle; Increased Productivity; Reduced Liability. - Paul Shahriari, Founder GreenMind.
Italian tile is an inert material manufactured from natural raw materials and will break down naturally at the end of its life cycle. Additionally, it is a recyclable product through the reuse of the material in the manufacturing process (minimizing natural resource use and waste).
A growing number of Italian tiles contain a percentage of pre- and post-consumer recycled content, which can contribute points toward USGBC LEED certification. Italian ceramic tile manufacturers recycle 97% of process water and 99.5% of production and purification waste.
