VENTILATED FACADE SYSTEM

VENTILATED FACADE SOLUTIONS

Smart, Innovation Solutions

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

Ventilated facade is a cladding system devised to allow the buildings to breathe – its structure acts as an envelope surrounding the building outer frames.

At Mirage, our Ventilated Facade anchors our porcelain stoneware slabs onto a robust aluminum frame, giving you the freedom to clad your building with a wide range of finishes.

SYSTEM FEATURES

The ventilation gap between two surfaces provides an air gap throughout the building skin, allowing air to flow with ease. With a suitable insulation layer, thermal bridges could be eliminated, reducing heat dispersion in winter and heat accumulation in winter. This is how we create a smart building, saving energy and providing comforts for users.

VISIBLE ANCHORING SYSTEM

Explore our two Visible Anchoring Systems

EXPLORE TYPE A
Visible anchoring system  type a

Type A is designed for smaller slabs and offering support for 30cm by 120cm, 20cm by 120cm, 60cm by 60cm, 45cm by 45cm and 30cm by 60cm. The structure is consisted of aluminum profiles and brackets and tied to the support to provide provision for expansion and shrinkage.

The fixing of the brackets to the supporting frame must be constructed with appropriate sized plugs.

The fixing of the profiles onto the brackets should be installed with rivets with ‘fixed point’ and ‘sliding point’, depending on each project.

The anchorage of the slabs is secured using stainless clips, which could be painted the same colour as the slabs to achieve maximum aesthetic result.

WALLTECH A OVERVIEW

Our Walltech A system allows installation of 20 mm thickness, guaranteeing a beautiful appearance and improved shock resistance. Suitable sizes come  in 60×120 cm, 30×120 cm, 20×120 cm, 90×90 cm, 45×90 cm and 60×60 cm – all sizes found within Mirage trademarked Evo range.

 

WALLTECH A SPECIFICATION

This system is characterised by the specialised concealed fixing devices attached onto the upright steel structure and the 20mm porcelain stoneware. The upright profiles must be fixed to the brackets using rivets with ‘fixed point’ and ‘sliding point’, depending on project requirement. The upright profile includes grooves suitable to house self-positioning steel clips and spaces to kept the slabs in place.

The system is also should be installed with EPDM gaskets to reduces vibration and allow a 4mm to 8mm joints between the slabs.

SUITABLE PORCELAIN SIZES

This system accepts all Mirage Evo porcelain stoneware ranges – all at 20mm thickness.

EXPLORE WALLTECH B
walltech b overview

Walltech B system is suitable for ventilated walls, allowing each individual slab to be anchored via  a coupling on the sides of the slabs itself. Similar to Walltech A, this system allows all Mirage Evo porcelain stoneware 20mm thick slabs to be used.

 

walltech b specification

The anchorage structures are to bear the loads transferred to the brackets so we recommend using compact materials for walls. The slabs can be fixed with a hole or using ‘kerf’ and ‘slot’ milling procedures. The couplings can be vertical or on the sides with perforations on the side of the slabs.

SUITABLE PORCELAIN SIZES

This system accepts all Mirage Evo porcelain stoneware ranges – all at 20mm thickness.

Walltech Concealed Anchoring System

This system is designed specifically for our 20mm thick porcelain stoneware slabs. Using thicker slabs provides better aesthetic, improved shock resistance and installation cost reduction. With the given advantages, it makes this system extremely popular.

CLOSED JOINTS SYSTEM

 

 

Explore this innovative solution for fully-covered ventilated cladding

EXPLORE
CLOSED JOINTS System OVERVIEW

The aluminum supporting substructure is pre-assembled onto the chosen porcelain slabs using a special interlocking system and alignment guide before arriving on site.

This per-assembling stage allows for complete design freedom. It also maintains the quality of the installation work – all necessary preparation work will be taken care of by our experts to give you the complete peace of mind.

CLOSED JOINTS System specification

To achieve minimum joint size, the system uses specialised aluminum sections to seal the joints, allowing macro-ventilation within the facade air gap while protecting the gaps from insects invasion. The system also allows for both grid-style installation and patterned-style installation – your designers and architects have complete control over how the facade would be arranged aesthetically.

 

CLOSED JOINTS System MAINTENANCE AND RESTRUCTURING

This system allows for individual slab or multiple slabs to be removed for maintenance work with ease. Should you wish to permanently dismantling the facade, it is also possible.

SUITABLE PORCELAIN SIZES

This system accepts porcelain stoneware slabs of both rectangular and square shapes.

SYSTEM ADVANTAGES

The system allows for easy installation, easy adaptation of the slabs to fit the grid system and of course, patterned facade can also be created with ease. The per-assembling process  is industrialised to minimise errors and ensure all joints spacing are identical.

PRE-ASSEMBLING STAGE ADVANTAGES

Using the latest high-precision CNC machinery, we are able to assemble the supporting structure onto the slabs with great accuracy. The perfectly closed joints prevents water ingress in bad weather, unwanted insects invasion and ensures no break in air gap for optimal ventilation

SLABS ARRANGEMENT POSSIBILITIES

This system allows great flexibility for achieving many highly attractive slabs arrangements. You can use a combination of our modular slabs to create endless square and rectangular patterned facade.

ACHIEVING THE PERFECT GRID

With the aid of high-precision CNC machinery, we can achieve the perfect grid facade as specified by your designers. We pre-arrange the compositions before the slabs arrive on site to make the installation hassle-free and to the exact specification required.

ANCHORING THE SLABS

The slabs are anchored mechanically and chemically to the structure. We use specialised silicone structural adhesive to acts as vibration damper between the aluminum and porcelain slabs. This is then secured using a bespoke mechanical anchoring devices.

This is a certified anchoring system, capable of offering 230kg resistance for each anchor point. It’s designed specially to support curtain wall and construction materials with low consistency such as hollow bricks.

CLOSED JOINTS System

This system offers numerous benefits, however its best feature is the ability  to achieve fully-covered cladding with ventilated facade – this saves energy, maintains highly attractive appearance and allows easy installation. We pre-assemble all slabs prior to their arrival on site to ensure quality control and ease of installation.

GLUED FACADE SYSTEM

GLUED FACADE SOLUTION

Traditional Solution With Modern Innovation

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

Glued Facade System offers a highly attractive result with very little maintenance requirement. The chosen porcelain slabs are embedded directly onto the building exterior with a layer of plaster in between to secure the slabs in place.

SYSTEM FEATURES

This system requires no additional mechanical fixing – your chosen porcelain slabs are placed directly onto of the plaster. However for larger slabs, we recommend using our supplied concealed hooks to add provide extra stability.

CONCEALED T.FIX

Recommended for larger slabs

EXPLORE
CONCEALED T.FIX OVERVIEW

This system is engineered specifically for large-size installations, at 1600m² or more. The concealed safety hook T.Fix guarantees maximum safety by adhering to the wall via the embedded mechanical books, which is inserted onto the porcelain slabs before fitting.

The T.Fix system by Mirage guarantees a breaking resistance of over 250kg. The 0.5mm stainless steel hook is supplied already fitted onto the back of the slabs, ready to be fitted on it. This makes the installation process very simple and quick.

For slabs measuring at 600mm, we recommend use of 1 book. For slabs measuring between 900mm and 1200mm, recommend 2 hooks at a distance of at least 400mm.

CONCEALED T.FIX INSTALLATION
  1. Hooks must be fixed onto the slabs before applying adhesive to the back of the slabs. We normally supply the hooks pre-installed, however you can request for this to be done on site at your convenience.
  2. Adhesive must be applied to the walls as well as the slabs
  3. Proceed to fix the slab onto the wall at desired position
  4. Make a hole in the wall through one of the metal plate openings
  5. Secure the slab onto the wall with a dowel for extra hold
  6. Proceed to fix the second slab over the metal plate so the fixing system is completely hidden
  7. Repeat until the surface has been covered

concealed t.fix summary

If you are looking to install slabs larger than 30cm, we highly recommend using our Concealed T.Fix mechanical fixings to ensure extra stability. Our T.Fix system guarantees a breaking resistance of over 250kg.
