Discover how insulating your window sills with porcelain stoneware tiles improves the energy efficiency of your projects.

Climate change and global warming have led to construction laws and regulations promoting energy savings. In addition, buildings’ thermal requirements have been much debated over the past few years.

When it comes to insulated window sills and door thresholds, ventilated façades, and external insulation systems, porcelain stoneware is the perfect material as it helps meet the increasing demand for energy-efficient buildings by improving the walls’ thermal and hygrometric performance.

What is a thermally insulated window sill?

An insulated window sill is a system that promotes thermal insulation by preventing heat transfer between the interior and exterior. Paired with external insulation, these window sills ensure perfect thermal insulation.

Why porcelain stoneware?

Porcelain stoneware-clad window sills and door thresholds reduce heat loss and eliminate thermal bridges, which are so common in these areas. Moreover, an insulated window sill tiled with porcelain stoneware tiles helps increase the interior temperature under the window, preventing mould and condensation.

Casalgrande Padana has a wide range of concrete-, granite-, wood-, marble-, metal-, and stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles that fit into any style and meet any design and application need. These tiles come in various thicknesses (6, 9, 12, or 14 mm) and formats (15x30, 30x60, 60x60, 90x90, 90x180, 60x120, 120x120, 120x240, 120x240, 120x278, and 160x320 cm). Moreover, they come in a vast array of warm tones (browns, reds, yellows, and beiges), neutral shades (whites, greys, and blacks), and cooler hues (blues and greens).

But there’s more. The tiles used for cladding façades and ventilated envelopes can be treated with Casalgrande Padana’s exclusive Bios Self-Cleaning® technology (available upon request) to ensure more hygiene and reduce nitrogen oxides, which are major air pollutants. Bios Self-Cleaning® features the excellent performance and aesthetic qualities of porcelain stoneware cladding and drastically reduces cleaning and maintenance. All this translates into significant savings while maintaining the building’s architectural quality and characteristics.
