The Lateram© Premium facade systems
offer sustainable complete solutions.
Curtained ventilated Facades
What are curtained ventilated facades?
A ventilated facade means a curtained, usually multi-layered, facade or exterior wall construction with a space between the building insulation and the exterior cladding. This special construction method has numerous advantages:
- energy-efficient structure
- comfortable living and room climate
- durable weatherproofing
- safe fire protection
- lightning, sound and condensation protection
- high creative possibilities
- long service life with low maintenance costs
The Lateram System
All in one System
Lateram produces finished facade panels that can be mounted directly. The advantage is that all available materials fits with each other. Our System passed all necessary tests and is authorized for the use in composite. All facade parts are produced under optimal conditions in so-called clean rooms, the quality assurance from the first step of the order to delivery or installation is 100% secured. Every single step from the raw materials to the finished plate is traceable and quality assured. Of course, with the building inspectorate approval of the German Institute for Construction Technology (DIBt).
The fastening system
System description of the substructure
- The substructure system forms the first layer for the Lateram facade system. The horizontally running L-profiles allow maximum flexibility in the installation of the vertically aligned GluRay© profiles
- GluRay© System, invisibly glued, pre-assembled
Material of the facade cladding
- Lateram Cera- oder Slatcover
Components of the substructure

5. GluRay© hat profile
6. GluRay© U-profile
7. adhesive connection U-profile / lateram ceramic

The substructure is anchored in the supporting structure. The anchoring base absorbs the static loads. The stability of the construction must be verified by a static calculation. Wind and suction loads must be taken into account when determining the fixing distances.
The substructures are designed so that any desired insulation thickness can be realized. It also reliably compensates for building tolerances and offers a high degree of flexibility. The substructure must be decoupled in accordance with EN 18516.
The thermal insulation serves as a thermal insulating layer and is located between the rear ventilation space and the anchoring base. During installation, care must be taken to ensure that the insulation elements cannot become detached and thus reduce or close the rear-ventilation cross-section.
The rear ventilation space is located between the inside of the lateram ceramic elements and the outside of the thermal insulation. The rear-ventilation cross section must be at least 200 cm³ /m.
Individuality and aesthetics
A variety of colours and vivid surfaces ensure haptic and optical diversity and offer maximum individuality and design possibilities.
Ceramic panels of significant sizes with a minimum thickness of 6 mm and low component weight. Minimally noticeable joint pattern, even and true to dimensions.
Fire protection class A1 – non-combustible – according to DIN EN 13501.
Highest product quality and lifelong durability offer excellent uses for interior and exterior applications.
Hail-proof and weather-resistant
Lateram ceramic elements are highly water resistant with less than 0.1% water absorption. The elements stand out for their long service life and are able to withstand the highest stressors.
Natural raw materials, sustainably produced and recyclable. Lateram ceramics are manufactured without any kind of radiation, pollutants or other chemical reactions.
Low susceptibility to damage, very low maintenance and servicing costs, easy installation.
Scratch-resistant and UV-resistant
Highly resistant to environmental and weather conditions. Thanks to their high colour fastness and UV resistance, the facades are low-maintenance for the duration of their service life.
Lateram ceramic elements are easy to clean. Optional surface treatments produce a self-washing effect. Dirty elements become clean easily from rain or alternatively by simply spraying with water.
