Communicating is one of the particularities today’s architecture has got us used to, if we think how many buildings are created with the intention of expressing a particular lifestyle, a form of interaction between inside and outside, the specific features of a business, the cultural power of a museum, the technical performance of a material, and so on. Ceramics can play this role thanks to their ability to blend into their surroundings, their technical qualities and their flexibility in composition. Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ is a material in this category which responds dynamically to everything required of it, clearly emphasising the architect’s perceptive intentions.
Protection is the characteristic that underlines the technical qualities of exterior cladding, in that it keeps structures intact, protecting them from the aggression of atmospheric agents, while on a more complex level it also becomes part of a structure that keeps the outside walls unaltered by creating an insulating gap. Ceramics meet these requirements both when applied directly to the outer façade to preserve the building and when installed as a ventilated wall, creating a microclimate that isolates the building from excessive heat or cold. Here too Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ can help, for as the method can be applied to products of different sizes and colours it can be used to create designs on the façade, while if used on technical walls it can cover large tiles to create a uniform ventilated façade.
Improving environmental impact means first of all creating projects that read the territory and integrate it through the creativity of different architects, and on the other hand using materials that not only preserve our resources but improve the environment in which we live. Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ is a ceramic tile that really makes a difference here, for its technical properties make it a unique anti-pollutant, anti-bacterial and self-cleaning product capable of reducing the effects of pollution and smog, respecting the ecosystem thanks to the natural mechanism of photocatalysis.
