Tiles

Facade tiles create a smart and even facade. They are suitable to most spaces, and tailored facade tile cladding allows flexibility in design.

They can be used to make original facades for public, residential, and corporation buildings. The tiles can also be applied as elements to enhance the look of a facade. Facade tiles can be used in new and repair construction works. They are designed to maintain their shape, are weather-resistant, low-maintenance, and environmentally friendly.

Custom-made facade tiles

All facade tiles are made to order. Material, size, perforation or other surface finishing is project based. The impression of a facade can be transformed by using different sized tiles, materials, colours, and spacing.

We recommend considering the size of our standard tile (1000 x 2000 mm) when designing facades, to minimise waste. The mounting of the tiles can be done using a requested method, e.g. exposed screws or hidden fastening, to create the desired effect.

Facade tiles – materials

Facade tiles can be made of aluminium, stainless steel, acid-proof steel, copper, and Cor-Ten steel. Surface finishing also regulates colour, glossiness, reflection, and composition.

Aluminium

Aluminium is lightweight and resistant to corrosion caused by water and most chemicals.     Options for surface finishing include:

  • powder coating,
  • anodising,
  • polishing/brushing.

Powder coating forms a hard surface that is both resistant to abrasions and chemical corrosion. Colour and level of glossiness can be chosen from the extensive RAL-colour chart. Anodising thickens aluminium’s natural oxide surface creating a lasting sleek finish. The result is a hard, abrasion and weather-resistant surface. Polished and brushed aluminium tiles can be used to execute striking cladding solutions.

Stainless and acid-proof steel

Stainless steel maintains its shine and appearance very well. Thanks to its condense composition it requires little upkeep. Acid-proof steel is recommended in establishments where corrosive chemicals are handled. RST and HST steel tiles are available in different surface finishes, which regulate glossiness, reflection, and composition:

  • polish/brushing,
  • glass blasting,
  • rough sanding.

Copper

Naturally forming patina on copper creates a lively, natural, and long-lasting surface on walls. We also offer pre-patinated copper options, which will transform less over. We offer copper with:

  • no surface finish -> natural patina
  • distressing/patination.

Cor-Ten steel

Cor-Ten steel is a weather-resistant material, which develops a natural patina surface over time, just like copper. The patina gives the material a unique look and anti-corrosive properties, thus making it low-maintenance and cost-effective.

Due to its anti-corrosive properties, it is environmentally friendly as it does not need to be regularly treated against corrosion.
