Ceramic rainscreen cladding
Highly versatile modern façade solution available in a huge variety of colours and textures, ceramic rainscreen cladding enables you to achieve a variety of finishes to complement your design.
Made entirely from natural materials, ceramic cladding can achieve both contemporary and traditional finishes reproducing the natural beauty and appearance of hewn stone such as granite or marble. The material is light, UV radiation resistant and completely impermeable.
Ceramic rainscreen cladding does not absorb airborne contamination or dust, nor does it support algae growth. It is exceptionally durable and strong, and free from the flaws that can weaken quarried stone. Other benefits include easier on-site handling and installing, resulting in a faster, cost-effective operation. An innovative material, it is the choice of architects who want a proven, engineered solution with known performance.
Terracotta cladding is made from natural materials that provides a distinctive character with the proven durability and simple beauty of clay.
The manufacturing process also has minimal negative impact on the environment, making it a popular option for sustainable new build projects. More economical to manufacture than other rainscreen cladding, terracotta is also the choice for architects who want a lightweight, cost effective finish.
Available in numerous textures, finishes and thicknesses to suit a variety of applications. From standard to lightweight options that utilise thin veneers of stone bonded onto a variety backing panels; honeycomb aluminium, ceramic and concrete, dependent on the application and design requirements.
Light weight systems can reduce the weight of the stone cladding significantly saving structural costs but is typically more expensive than natural stone finishes.
We will ensure that the most appropriate material, system and fixings are selected to guarantee structural compatibility with your design.
