Unitized Façades

This GammaStone Air cladding solution guarantees a high thermal resistance, contributing to the thermal insulation of the building despite the minimum thickness and high aesthetic value.
GammaStone panels are specifically integrated for unitized façades. All our solutions are studied from the point of view of thermal cutting, mechanical resistance and water sealing. Directly installed on the cell in an engineered way inside our plants, the panel and its system are assembled in the company, allowing savings in terms of installation times and costs during the on-site installation.
