More about this product

The Shildan Glazed ALPHATON® Panel is an extruded, double leaf, 30 mm (1.18”) in a custom white color. The increased strength of the panel is derived from a chain of internal I-beam supports. In order to meet every design challenge, the ALPHATON® panels can be incorporated in both horizontal and vertical support systems. For additional design flexibility, the panels can be oriented in either a horizontal or a vertical layout.

Glazed surface

Shildan develops the glazing colours in their own lab according to the requirement of the customer. Glazed Moeding clay tiles are produced according to the following production process:

  1. Extrusion of the tiles: The tiles are extruded out of a homogenous plastical mixture of different natural clays.
  2. Drying of tiles: The extruded tiles are dried in a special drier
  3. Application of glazing raw material: The glazing raw material comes liquid. It is sprayed onto the surface of the dried tiles.
  4. Firing of tiles: The tiles with the glazing raw material on their surface are fired in a special kiln at temperatures of up to 1.200°C

The glazed Moeding tiles are fired once. This firing happens at a very high temperature. This most modern production process offers the following advantages:

  • The glazing raw material is applied onto the non fired clay body. As non fired clay has a relatively high water absorption, it sucks in a part of the liquid glass raw material. This later leads to a very good connection between the clay body and the glazing. Cracks in the glazing and spalling are excluded.
  • The glazing is fired at a very high temperature of up to 1.200°C. Due to this high temperature the fired glazing is of best quality. Frost resistance is guaranteed, fading out of the colour is excluded.
  • For such high firing temperatures only glazing raw material of highest quality can be used. Raw material of minor quality do not withstand these high firing temperatures. MOEDING glazes do not have any lead additions.

Shapes

- The Longoton® ribbed panel

LONGOTON® ribbed panel characteristic feature is its horizontal structure. The panel’s ribbed structure camouflages the horizontal seams between panels. Far from being merely a design element, the LONGOTON® ribbed panel is also an active acoustic façade. Sound waves are broken by the ribs on the panel’s surface and are redirected into the insulation through openings in the panel.

- The Longoton® deep grooved façade

The horizontal grooves divide the structure of the panel surface into three, thus creating an interesting pattern of smaller elements. The deep grooved panel can be installed reliably and economically in conjunction with a rein-forced horizontal Moeding substructure. The panel can thus be combined with the LONGOTON® and LONGOTON® base system.

- The Longoton® waved façade

Playful soft transitions of light and shade are the special features here, forming a calm floating effect.The waved panel can be installed reliably and economically in conjunction with a reinforced horizontal Moeding substructure. The panel can thus be combined with the LONGOTON® and LONGOTON® base system.

- The Longoton® grooved façade

The filigree grooves lend the panel surface a light appearance and underline the façade’s horizontals.The grooved panel can be installed reliably and economically in conjunction with a reinforced horizontal Moeding substructure. The panel can thus be combined with the LONGOTON® and LONGOTON® base system.
