The ventilated curtain façade (VHF)

Whether for a new construction or restoration. Or whether you just want to cover partial areas or the entire façade: The ventilated curtain façade (VHF) is one of the highest-quality technical systems, and one of the most successful contemporary façade systems.

The technical benefits of the VHF are based on the structural separation of heat insulation and weather protection.
The rear-ventilation space arranged between the insulation material and the covering leads away the moisture safely and enduringly.
The substructure is the structural, supporting link between the outer supporting wall and the façade covering.

Aluminium and stainless steel brackets are often used as the substructure; but because these are heat-conducting materials, they form punctiform heat-bridges. These must be taken into account in the U-value calculation and often result in the insulation material having to be very thick.

An alternative to this is the new, thermal bridge free substructure TEKOFIX, as a modern spacer construction to the insert.
The TEKOFIX brackets are made of glass-fibre reinforced plastic and offer very good load capacity.
When using TEKOFIX there are no punctiform heat bridges, resulting in a reduction of the required insulation thicknesses of up to 70%.

For the covering, we recommend aluminium, a 100 % recyclable, extremely long-life and light material.
All of our aluminium profiles are available in an almost unlimited variety of colours and shapes – at their best in the highly colour-fast BEMO-FLON paint system with “easy to clean” effect.
