Traditional building typologies have radically changed in the last few decades. This is due to an increase in complex architectural designs, off-site construction practices, new technological advancements, innovative digital tools, and industrial building components. Contemporary architectural envelopes appear more complex not only in their morphology but in their construction systems. Thus, a different approach is required not only during the design phase but also during the selection of materials and systems that best suit the project demands.
Therefore, the standardized mass production process is no longer suitable for most construction projects. A new developing solution for many industry sectors is the practice of mass customization. In concept, customization means delivering user adapted or personalized products at a similar or even lowered cost as standardized mass production.
In response to client demand, mass customization has created a variety of products and flexible processes around a standard EPDM waterproofing membrane. This allows the client to increase the range of options in accordance with the following project requirements:
- A membrane with unlimited widths
- A membrane with self-adhesive bands
- A membrane with clip-in gasket compatible with current client window profile
- Pre-fabricated corners or pieces
- Pre-fabricated frames
- Customized sealing profiles
- Combinations of the above solutions
The Effisus Ecofacade Pre-Fab system is based on a pre-fabricated and bespoke sealing solution developed for individual project details and requirements. Further information about these solutions is available in the Effisus Technical Guide: “How to use Pre-Fabrication solutions”
The Effisus Ecofacade Pre-Fab System includes the following systems:
Effisus Ecofacade Pre-Fab Corners: Effisus Pre-fab corners are a great supplement for a faster and error-free installation. Due to the difficult corner shapes and dimensions, window frame corners are often the hardest areas to seal in a facade connection. To prevent this, the Effisus Pre-fab Corners are custom-made to fit the needs of each project, making the application process faster and improving the system's overall sealing efficiency.
Effisus Ecofacade Pre-Fab Frames: The Effisus Pre-fab Frames are a high-performing system for seamless facade-to-window connections. With the Effisus Pre-fab Frames, each frame is customized and prefabricated based on individual project needs. The Ecofacade Membrane ensures a time-saving, error-free, and long-lasting installation result.
Effisus Ecofacade Pre-Fab Profiles: Due to their edges and shapes, waterproofing window frames has always been a laborious process which generates significant waste. As an alternative system for seamless facade-to-window connections, the Ecofacade Pre-Fab profiles offer a customized and pre-fabricated option to specifically fit each window aluminum profile.
Effisus Ecofacade Pre-Fab TrueSeal: The Effisus Pre-fab TrueSeal system is ideal for rain screen cladding designs that require proper and efficient sealing. TrueSeal is a solution developed for distinct facade details, made of 3D vulcanized components. The Effisus Pre-fab True Seal is the result of Hi-Tech EPDM/TPE molding and vulcanization technology which delivers an innovative production methodology.
EFFISUS is focused on delivering a personalized and user adapted product combined with a project-by-project approach. In every project, each detail is taken into consideration to drastically reduce the application time and human errors leveraging quality and efficiency. Some specific works are almost impossible to be correctly performed at site and there are many external factors that condition the work and hinder the process, which puts at risk the final quality of the whole project.
