Inspired by the beauty and the natural qualities of terracotta for more than 150 years, TERREAL has become a key player in building materials. Our range of tile options includes single walled tiles, double walled tiles, acoustic tiles, different surface finishes, corner options and more. The unique finishes allow the possibility to create tiles in any RAL colour and to apply logos onto the surface. We are even able to work with 3-D shapes in the facing of the tile.
Since ancient times, clay has been used for decoration, protection and appeal. Today, it takes new shapes that add style to your architectural designs. Terracotta is a material with cutting-edge production techniques and industry leading performance in all requirements: manufacturing consistency, numerous colour variations, product customization, ease of installation, versatility, insulation performance and environmental responsiveness.

The substructure is designed to cope with New Zealand's high wind and high humidity conditions, with either an EPDM dryseal or negative detail in the vertical joint, a minimum 50mm wide cavity and horizontal shiplapped tiles. The systems have been tested against wind pressures of up to 2.9 kPa (Blizzard tile). The bracket system used is illustrated under T50 support structure. As the tiles are hanging onto proprietary clips, the system does not create stress on the tiles but offers great seismic resistance (check out the amazing video below.
Facades are thin and light weight (from 30 kg/m2) and the wide cavity system achieves pressure-equalisation, exterior grade 50-year durability and extended detailing to comply with the required conditions for the project.
