VENTUS are aerated and thermally insulated roof panels in Twinpor Polystirene (EPS) for the creation of thermally insulated roofing packages with draining grooves for condensation droplets and a ventilation chamber to be applied to new structures and renovations.
VENTUS panels provide an external thermal insulation on the roof that improves the thermal efficiency of the building, and can be configured to increase the thermal inertia of the roof or to install the roof finishing or photovoltaic panels directly on VENTUS.
The insulated roof panels can be manufactured with a ventilated cavity and an OSB panel to sustain the waterproofing and finishing, or without ventilation in order to cast concrete on top.
The innovation of the Ventus system is represented by the small grooves present on one of the two surfaces of the insulating panel that can perform two different functions depending on the type of package that you choose to use. If you choose to create a ventilated roof, the grooves, positioned in the direction of maximum slope, have the important purpose of collecting and conveying out any condensation droplets formed in the ventilation chamber. If it is used under the concrete cast the grooves guarantee a mechanical attachment of the concrete slab to the insulating panel.
Ventus provides high thermal performance and, if combined with other building systems, helps to obtain the most virtuous certifications in terms of energy quality such as: Class A, Casa Gold CasaClima, NZEB Buildings and Passive House.
The Ventus system, depending on the needs, can assume four different conformations, namely: Ventus base element, Ventus + OSB, Ventus + Windi, Ventus + Concret
