Terracotta cladding is manufactured with natural and raw clay fired at high temperatures. It is an architectural cladding material that provides many advantages over other types of cladding. It has evolved since the 1990s, from basic red tiles to new versatile and bespoke shapes, glazes and colours. Modern manufacturing processes for terracotta cladding gives architects a new dimension to explore when designing buildings.
Terracotta cladding can be oriented vertically, horizontally, shaped profiled, glazed, or unglazed. The configurations and finishes are truly endless. But not only does terracotta cladding add a new aesthetic dimension to buildings, but it also boasts a range of other benefits.
Terracotta cladding is durable and long-lasting. When properly installed, our terracotta’s lifespan is much more than that of aluminium or concrete facades, and your chosen colour will last for a long time without fading. Dust will only accumulate very slowly over time, so having your terracotta cladding power washed once every 2-3 years will restore the terracotta to its former glory, with no colour loss.
Terracotta cladding is fired at very high temperatures, which means it is fireproof. It does not burn, and therefore makes an excellent cladding material. Being made from 100% clay, it is 100% safe for humans and the environment and can be reused and recycled very easily.
