Large format ceramic tile facades

Large format ceramic tile facades have a minimalistic joint pattern which ensures an elegant appearance and eye-catching area effect. They can be combined with structural glazing facades to create stunning visual designs. Large format ceramic tile facades meet the requirements of investors and architects down to the last detail.

Large format ceramic tile facades are extremely light and easy to mount. The flame-retardant and non-flammable versions have both been approved by building authorities. Large format ceramic tile facades are highly resistant to abrasion, breakage and chemicals. They are also self-cleaning. Large format ceramic tile facades are available in two systems with concealed fastenings: 12 mm large format ceramic tiles – non-flammable, ∙ 5 mm large format ceramic tiles – flame retardant. Large format ceramic tile facades can be manufactured in the formats 1000 x 3000 mm and 1620 x 3240 mm.
