Efficiency and design for your facade

Rehabilitation work is the interventions that are made on a building through the introduction of new elements or installations in order to improve the building’s conditions in terms of salubrity, habitability, safety, energy efficiency, etc.

The replacement of old, worn out materials with deficiencies, for new ones adapted to the current needs of the building to be rehabilitated is, in itself, an improvement in the conditions of habitability. In addition, the transformation of the façade is also an improvement in terms of energy consumption, thermal or sound insulation, aesthetics, etc. The value of the building is increased and the comfort of its inhabitants and their quality of life is improved.

Composite panel in renovations:

Due to its conditions as a material, the composite aluminum panel is presented as the most suitable option in terms of quality-price-performance ratio on the market, since it favors the thermal efficiency of the façades and improves their insulation.

Its versatility in terms of assembly systems and finishes provides a large number of creative construction possibilities. Whether it is the renovation of a house or residential building, an industrial or commercial building, through the study of the building structure and its special needs, thanks to the STACBOND® composite panel, it is possible to give an old building a completely renovated appearance and improve its habitability and use

Main advantages:

Structural lightness

The use of optimized aluminum substructures allows significant weight reduction, making it the ideal choice for renovations of existing structures. Aluminum’s low density, strength, ductility and malleability make it an optimal material for use in the design of ventilated façades

Energy efficiency

The ventilated façade creates an air chamber that ensures continuous ventilation along the entire surface of the façade, resulting in a chimney effect that generates a thermal cushion. This solution allows an energy saving of 30% (approx.) compared to conventional façades.

Finishings in the material itself

Due to its great material adaptation, the modulations of the façades covered with aluminum composite panel can use the same material to make their crowns and closings, either through independent trims of the pieces themselves, or with the resolution, through folding, of the panel itself according to its structuring.

Correction of imperfections

The composite panel ventilated façade systems allow correction of unevenness and imperfections, as well as completely changing the shape of the base façade.

Easy cleaning and maintenance

Dirt and stained areas can be cleaned with a soft brush and water, from top to bottom. Moderate water pressure can also be used. Afterwards, the surface should be rinsed.


Due to the latest innovations in the material, the aluminum composite panel has a very long service life with hardly any wear due to corrosion or erosion. Recent studies on construction materials support the durability of aluminum in building façades.

Integral rehabilitation process

Thermographic analysis of the façade

The infrared thermography is a technique that captures the thermal radiation emitted by a body or object and transforms it into an image. It can be used for a multitude of situations, such as in installations, construction, industrial mechanics, etc.

It is performed using a thermographic camera that is pointed towards the desired body to be studied, without coming into contact with it. The result will be a thermographic image showing the different temperatures in the specific area or installation while it is working.

Its main advantages are:

  • It is an easy to perform study, which does not require works, sampling or testing. It is non-destructive, does not interrupt any production process and can be carried out while other work is being done without causing damage.
  • Reduces analysis costs by quickly locating all faults and failures, thus reducing maintenance work.
  • It helps to optimize the available resources to use energy more efficiently, achieving greater energy savings and a lower environmental impact.

Within an integral rehabilitation process, thermographic analysis contributes to:

  • Visualize energy losses
  • Detect insulation failures
  • Locate air leaks
  • Find humidity nuclei, both in the interior and exterior structure
  • Locate thermal bridges
  • Locate water leaks in flat roofs
  • Detect breaks and leaks in hot water pipes
  • Detect electrical or construction faults

Façade study with laser scanner

The laser scanner is a tool that allows us, through the collection of a large amount of data, to build the BIM model of a building to be renovated from a point cloud.

Its operation is based on the emission of a distance meter laser bouncing off a point and returning with information about the point being studied. At the same time, its scanning system analyzes the beam exit angles. In just a few minutes, the laser scanner is capable of analyzing the entire façade, creating a point cloud with millimetric precision, which informs us of the entire map of the building.

Currently, this type of technology is one of the most widely used for obtaining an accurate photograph of the building being renovated, since it facilitates the modeling and study of the constructive systems at the time of proposing a solution for the rehabilitation.

Point cloud representation and modeling

Once the scan is completed, the results obtained are millions of points represented on a coordinate axis, their reflectance and color, data that are used to work on the full-scale modeling of the building with a high level of accuracy.

This scan is very useful to study and accurately determine the most suitable systems for the renovation, anticipating, in addition, possible obstacles that could be found with more antiquated measurement methods.

Using specific software, it is possible to create a complete model of the building in its current state and, from there, start working on the study of the renovation and offer different development proposals for the renovation.

Renovation proposal

Option 1

  • White RAL 9016 STB- 413
  • Rugged black STB-4E9

Option 2

  • Carbon STB-408
  • Copper metallic STB-414

Option 3

  • High gloss black STB-4F1
  • Golden pearl STB-S10
  • Curved

Option 4

  • White metallic STB-400
  • Silver metallic STB-403
  • Punching

Subsidies for housing rehabilitation

With the aim of improving the conservation, safety, accessibility, sustainability and energy efficiency, among others, of buildings, the subsidies for housing rehabilitation seek to ensure that the refurbishment and improvement work of the properties can be covered and carried out.

Through the different housing renovation plans, and with the need to meet the requirements of public bodies, it is possible to access a series of subsidies that facilitate the realization of the refurbishment and improvement work.

Balaídos Municipal Stadium

In the Balaídos stadium, unique geometries are to be developed in search of an expressiveness linked to the top of the building, blurring the boundary between façade and roof in favor of freer and more creative forms.

For this project, the STACBOND® technical department developed a second skin system capable of adapting to the curvature of the surfaces by means of a very light system that maintains the waterproofing properties.
