The Shildan/Moeding Terracotta Rainscreen Façade system merges the advantages of two worlds of construction technology, making it a building technique of the future. The warm, natural look of terracotta is combined with a more modern, highly-articulated rainscreen curtainwall system to produce a truly advanced “masonry” exterior wall system with these great advantages:
Built for the Future
Both the ALPHATON® & LONGOTON® Terracotta Rainscreen systems address the new IBC 2009 and the International Energy Code which is being adopted by many states such as New York and Massachusetts.
Flexibility with the Open Joint Technology
Transitions between varying materials and introduction of architectural reveals, within the system are easily made. The many available sizes of panels, both in width and height, provide the designer with a wide range of modular design.
All panels are made from 100% natural clay materials with no artificial pigments. A wide range of natural colors are available. Terracotta is a truly “green” building material.
80 year-plus life expectancy, with a naturally ventilated wall cavity, helps to eliminate the potential for “sick building syndrome” common to closed cavity walls. All materials fully recyclable.
Ten Year Guarantee
The full system is factory guaranteed for ten years.
Perfect for Coastal Environment
All materials of the system are non-fading and resistant to frost, corrosion, salt water and other aggressive substances. Magnesium alloy aluminum support structures are used in shipbuilding.
The sound attenuation of walls is significantly improved by the MOEDING-ALPHATON® facade.
Replacement of damaged tile
If one needs to be replaced, it can easily be replaced without harming the others.
All year installation
The system can be installed in almost all weather conditions.
