Partner Description

Terreal products emphasize the natural beauty of terracotta with the cladding and sunscreen systems, its feel, and natural warmth while combining it with modern technology to create the perfect building envelope. Terreal systems can be installed as a ventilated facade, meeting NFPA-285 and CI requirements as the entire wall assembly.

Beautiful, durable, ventilated facades and terra cotta panels offer limitless architectural possibilities for buildings in any climate.

Terra cotta sunscreens provide a uniquely beautiful way to absorb and diffuse sunlight from building exteriors, creating an effective barrier against heat.


Since ancient times, clay has been used for decoration, protection and design. Today, it takes new shapes that add style to architectural designs. Terracotta is a traditional material transformed with cutting-edge production techniques featuring industry leading performance in all requirements: manufacturing consistency, color variations, customization capabilities, ease of installation, versatility, insulation performance and environmental responsiveness.


  • Structures around the world, including the Coliseum in Rome and the Great Wall of China, have used bricks and clay tiles for construction for centuries.
  • Fired clay, terracotta, will remain color permanent, fully functional, and beautiful for more than 100 years.
  • Terreal North America takes the basic principle of firing clay to harden it and applies modern technology and techniques to produce a wide range of terracotta products; bricks, roof tiles, flooring and wall cladding.
  • Terreal North America panels are made from the same raw materials as clay roof tiles → there are buildings in the US that have over 100 year old clay roof tiles that still look and perform like new.
  • First double skin terracotta rainscreen installed more than 30 years ago in France is still performing beautifully today.
  • Sleek terracotta panels offer modern design aesthetic with “peace of mind” of centuries of successful performance from the most natural building product.
