Custom-designed and engineered, the NBK terracotta clay tile facade system is based on the open ventilated rainscreen facade principle. The tile design and overlapping joints allow air to flow through the cavity while discouraging rainwater from entering.
Manufactured from 100% natural raw materials, terracotta components are low-maintenance, durable, weatherproof and almost completely recyclable. The system components are manufactured to maximise shape accuracy and guarantee the best fit.
Besides offering resistance to ultraviolet rays, frost and chemicals, this system also has the ability to accommodate detailed designs in terms of shape, colour, texture and glaze for tailored solutions. The flexibility of the product and multiple colours available offers architects maximum scope for creativity, allowing for designs of striking facades with tremendous aesthetic appeal and all the benefits of one of the most weather-resistant construction materials available.
NBK terracotta facade systems are distributed in New Zealand by Jacobsen Creative Surfaces. A private, family business established in 1962, Jacobsen has a reputation for quality products and has been providing expert service to the industry in New Zealand for over 55 years.
