Jacobsen Supplies Naturally Fire-Resistant Cladding

In 1995 Italian architect Renzo Piano, in cooperation with NBK, pioneered the use of architectural terracotta in Potsdamer Platz Square; an area which was once defined as the Berlin Wall. Now with over 20 years of engineering developments, architectural terracotta has gradually become a mainstream curtain wall that many architects prefer to use.

The NBK Terracotta Natural Ventilated Wall Facade is made from 100% natural clay tile supported by marine grade aluminium, all of which meets the 1st January 2017 updated New Zealand fire safety requirements for external cladding, and is manufactured in a wide range of design profiles, sizes and colours (both natural and glazed). The tiles are complemented by an equally wide range of sun control baguettes and louvres.

Backed by a highly trained and experienced technical department, NBK can produce unique and sophisticated shapes specifically for projects, to enhance design vision while also engineering the system to allow for site-specific environmental factors and NZ Building code requirements.

Jacobsen is proud to represent Hunter Douglas NBK in the New Zealand market, already supplying cladding to King Edward Barracks Christchurch and Bellus Apartments Auckland, with many more currently in production.
