Terracotta panels are a great facade solution with aesthetic, structural, and economical possibilities. Terreal offers a vast array of custom terracotta cladding facade systems, which provide architects with significant design freedom. Terracotta panels come in different colors, dimensions, and finishes, and comprise both rainscreen systems and direct-to-sheathing terracotta cladding. With a highly sustainable manufacturing process, Terreal meets high standards of environmental protection. Thus, terracotta is 100% natural and recyclable, without using any harmful products.

Terrareal facades include external insulation systems which reduce thermal bridging and greenhouse gas emissions.
The Piterak facade library from Terreal is a double-skin rainscreen cladding systems with modular panels available in a variety of standard sizes and can also be ordered to custom sizes or cut on-site. Piterak panels are engineered to provide wind and impact resistance and support structural loads while maintaining a slender profile. The Nexclad series is a single-skin modular terracotta system which can be installed directly to wall sheathing or used as a finishing material. The small and lightweight tiles allow efficient on-site installation, and can be applied to framed walls or hard walls.
Terreal's sunscreen options are made of terracotta baguettes which combine solar energy control and customizable aesthetics. The Autan and Zonda series include rectangular terracotta baguettes which can be installed vertically or horizontally to satisfy shading and design conditions. They are typically constructed in groups of three to five components, either with or without rubber spacers in between. The Hartman terracotta baguettes are similar in assembly, color options, and structural abilities, but have a unique oval shape.
