The NBK TERRART Light terracotta façade system from Hunter Douglas Contract makes the beauty of terracotta façade tiles available at an attractive cost. Excellent durability, reduced weight per unit area, and a secure “clip and hold” affixing system make TERRART Light ideal for new construction as well as retrofit and re-clad applications.

Designed as a ventilated curtainwall/rainscreen solution, TERRART Light is produced from environmentally responsible clay-based construction materials. Available in small and medium format elements, NBK customizes each order to meet the client’s desired dimensions. An extensive range of colors, textures and profiles ensures a place in almost any project. NBK’s expertise in complex mixing techniques and traditional firing methods set the standard for Terracotta façade design. All NBK Terracotta products are weather and frost resistant.

TERRART Light tiles can achieve compelling visual effects with profiled surface grooves and textures, available in Natural, Grooved, Wire Struck, and Ribbed finishes. Engobe finishes, available in matte and semi-gloss, feature white or colored clay slip coating applied to the ceramic body to impart colors or textures. Architect-specified engobe finishes are also available, allowing an additional range of colors that can be manufactured specifically for a given project.

Building owners and design/construction teams can now consider terracotta tiles whenever renovating and reconstructing façades with this system, which supports tiles up to 1,524 mm (5 feet) in length and 1,400 mm (1 foot, 3 3/4 inches) in height. A low weight per unit area of approximately 33 kilogram per square meter (6.75 pounds per square foot) allows panels to mount to almost any façade with just a few holes and dowels. TERRART Light façades are tested to ASTM and DIN EN ISO standards.
