Manufacturer's Product Description

Boston Valley Terra Cotta’s ceramic rain screen cladding system provides benefits above and beyond conventional masonry cavity wall systems. In addition to the durability and ease of maintenance inherent to any ceramic cladding, the TerraClad™ system incorporates ship-lapped open joints that shield the structural wall from wind driven rain and snow while also ventilating the air space to mitigate mold and mildew growth. Beyond the functionality of the system, the plasticity of terra cotta offers profile opportunities to designers not available in alternate rain screen cladding materials.

Benefits of the TerraClad™ System:
Ceramic panels installed on an aluminum framing system offer the durability of a masonry installation without the weight
Continuous insulation outboard of the primary wall system increases the thermal performance of the building envelope
A mortar-less system allows for installation in any weather conditions and reduces maintenance costs associated with re-pointing
Replacement of a panel does not require the entire stacked bond to be removed
Gravity and friction fit pre-punched track system speeds installation
LEED credit opportunities
Abundant profile, color and finish opportunities available
