Terracotta cladding. Sustainable. 

Terracotta cladding

With a wide range of colours, surfaces, and formats, terracotta cladding exhibit natural versatility, providing limitless design possibilities for facades. Their lightweight nature enables a flexible and swift installation process, while maintaining a light substructure. The premium quality of terracotta cladding ensures efficient and effective results for your architectural projects.


Why use terracotta cladding?

Terracotta cladding has exceptional advantages across various aspects. With their low dead weight, the need for substantial substructure is significantly reduced, saving time, materials, and costs.

Moreover, terracotta elements are made solely from Westerwald clay, eliminating the need for additives and ensuring environmental and health benefits. In terms of performance, terracotta facades exhibit remarkable durability, with resistance against impacts, scratches, UV rays, frost, graffiti, and atmospheric and thermal influences and maintain their colour and format over a lifetime.

With non-flammability classification and earthquake resistance, terracotta cladding prioritises safety and reliability in every aspect.

Key benefits of terracotta cladding

Terracotta cladding, also known as clay cladding, offers several unique benefits that make it a desirable choice for building exteriors. Here are three key advantages of terracotta cladding:

Natural and Timeless Aesthetics: Terracotta cladding provides a warm and natural aesthetic to buildings. Made from natural clay, terracotta tiles or panels offer a rustic and earthy look that can enhance the architectural character of a structure. Terracotta cladding comes in various shapes, sizes, and textures, allowing for design versatility and customization. It can be used to achieve a range of architectural styles, from traditional to contemporary. The natural color variations and unique characteristics of terracotta create a visually appealing facade that stands the test of time.

Durability and Weather Resistance: Terracotta cladding is highly durable and resistant to weathering. Fired at high temperatures, terracotta undergoes a vitrification process, making it strong, non-porous, and resistant to water absorption. It can withstand extreme weather conditions, including freeze-thaw cycles, UV radiation, and high winds. Terracotta cladding is also resistant to fading, corrosion, and chemical damage. With its excellent weather resistance, terracotta cladding maintains its structural integrity and aesthetic appeal for many years, requiring minimal maintenance.

Thermal Performance and Energy Efficiency: Terracotta cladding offers thermal insulation properties, contributing to the energy efficiency of buildings. Clay is a natural insulator, helping to regulate indoor temperatures by reducing heat transfer. Terracotta cladding creates a thermal barrier, reducing heat gain in warmer climates and heat loss in colder climates. This can lead to lower energy consumption for heating and cooling, resulting in reduced utility costs and environmental impact. Additionally, the natural ventilation properties of terracotta allow for the exchange of air, improving indoor air quality and comfort.

Furthermore, terracotta cladding is a sustainable choice for building exteriors. Clay is an abundant and locally available material, and the manufacturing process of terracotta typically involves low energy consumption. Terracotta cladding is also recyclable and can be repurposed at the end of its lifespan.
