TICS: aesthetic ceramic – outstanding energy efficiency
Energy-saving, noise-insulating, weatherproof and attractive over the long term: ceramic thermal insulation composite systems (TICS) fulfil all requirements on a perfect building shell, whereby the ceramic covering not only proves to be durable and color-fast – the large selection of sizes, surfaces and colors also offers extensive possibilities for design. Special customised products – a particular strength of AGROB BUCHTAL – reveal additional levels of freedom as illustrated by the reference projects on this website.
Thermal insulation composite systems comprising three components (insulating layer, reinforcement and surface covering) save heating costs while providing thermal protection in the summer. New guidelines governing facade insulation will increase the significance of TICS in the years to come. Nevertheless, only approved system components should be used, e.g. non-flammable insulation systems with mineral wool or rock wool insulating panels with ceramic surface covering for high-rise facades and more stringent fire safety requirements. Considerable advantages are also offered by TICS facades following building refurbishment projects: leasing is facilitated and Hytect coatings mean that low-maintenance facades generate only minimum maintenance costs.
