Sophisticated ventilated glass facades

The Airtec Glass system from Lithodecor combines the unique qualities of glass with the innovative technology of a ventilated rainscreen façade.

In association with
The University of Potsdam, Germany.

The extremely resistant composite panels, which can be up to 32mm thick, consist of toughened safety glass bonded to a lightweight concrete carrier. The glass cladding can be used for striking effect as the panes of toughened safety glass are available in numerous attractive colours and can even carry customised printing.

Having passed all the necessary durability and fire protection tests, the Airtec Glass composite panels, up to 4.7m2 in size, are hooked onto the frame with an invisible clip design. 

Airtec Glass was specified by Wilkinson Eyre Architects for the Earth Sciences Building at Oxford University creating a building facade that is not only striking in appearance but satisfies structural and architectural demands. 

The lightweight glass cladding has also created a sophisticated and vibrant finish for a luxury apartment block, in West London, with the different coloured panels providing interest and impact.
 
In addition, sections of Airtec Glass and Airtec Natural Stone can be combined in the same plane, creating a seamless transition of glass and stone for the exterior façade of a building. Two projects where this has produced a distinguished and striking finish is at Farringdon Station and at The University of Potsdam in Germany.

The option to combine different finishes and materials is not available with classic systems. Whether transparent, tinted or enamelled, screen printed or plain - anything is possible!
