Terracotta facade panels can achieve compelling visual effects
Terracotta facade panels can achieve compelling visual effects with profiled surface grooves and textures, available in Natural, Grooved, Wire Struck, and Ribbed finishes. Cladding finishes, available in matte and semi-gloss, feature white or colored clay slip coating applied to the ceramic body to impart colors or textures. Architect-specified cladding finishes are also available, allowing an additional range of colors that can be manufactured specifically for a given project.
Building owners and design/construction teams can now consider terracotta tiles whenever renovating and reconstructing façades with this system, which supports tiles up to 1,524 mm (5 feet) in length and 1,400 mm (1 foot, 3 3/4 inches) in height. A low weight per unit area of approximately 33 kilogram per square meter (6.75 pounds per square foot) allows panels to mount to almost any façade with just a few holes and dowels.
