THE TERRACOTTA Façade

ArGeTon

®


ArGeTon® TERRACOTTA Façade ArGeTon® was developed as a back-ventilated façade cladding made from clay at the beginning of the 1980’s. The aim was to create a timeless modern façade with the unmistakable character of clay as a natural product.

Today, almost 30 years later, the name ArGeTon® stands for quality, aesthetics and creativity. The success story is based on a systematic and future-oriented product development, service-oriented sales and systematic quality assurance of a large group. ArGeTon® is backed by Wienerberger AG – the largest manufacturer of bricks in the world.

The building of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg – the winner of two awards – was clad with a chocolate brown ArGeTon® façade.

The success is based on dialogue and expertise, which is why in future too you will be advised exclusively by experts. We prepare the best solution for every project working in cooperation with you. We look forward to the tasks and challenges you have in store for us.

Sustainable elegance The ArGeTon® façade enhances new and modern buildings and lends refurbished properties a contemporary character. Combined with steel, glass or wood, it is elegant, natural and timelessly perfect. ArGeTon® façades also keep their good looks for decades: · A clever water runoff system avoids the accumulation of dirt. · The ceramic colours remain constant and strong even when exposed to tough weathering conditions. · The façade is acknowledged to be particularly fire-resistant. · The joint profile of the façade protects against lateral shift of the façade tiles, the penetration of impact rain and rattling of the places in the wind.


Production In a roller kiln conceived especially for this purpose, the extruded façade tiles are fired at high temperatures, individually and carefully coordinated depending on their respective shades. The exact dimensioning of the ArGeTon® façade tiles is guaranteed by a special calibrating facility – the essential element of the precise joint grid which lends the façade its overall impression.

TESTED SECURITY: The ArGeTon® façade is ball-shooting resistant ArGeTon® GmbH was the first manufacture of ceramic façade tiles to pass the test for ball-throwing safety in compliance with DIN 18032-3. The high strength of the ArGeTon® façade tiles and the new B/85 fixing clips, which can be attached to the carrier rails without additional tools, are impressive features. The ArGeTon® façades easily maintains its condition, making the ceramic façade particularly suitable for use on public buildings such as schools.

ARCHITECTURAL tour

The sand-coloured iridescent engobe surface is responsible for the animated structure of this administrative building in Gooiland, Netherlands.

The special glazed blue colour of the faรงade tiles lends an individually cool and elegant look to this modern administrative complex in Eindhoven, Netherlands.


The two buildings stand as a landmark in Klaipedia, Lithuania’s port on the Baltic. The warm and strong natural red of the façade creates a visual bridge to the roofs of the old city.

Characteristic element of the spacious residential development in Bulgaria‘s Black Sea coast in Lozenec is the pearl-white ceramic façade combined with typical wood elements.

Tradition and the modern are elegantly combined in Dongen, Netherlands: the lightness of the volcanic grey shaded faรงade reflects the colour shade of the old mill.

Architects chose faรงade tiles in natural red for an administrative building in Shanghai, China, thereby creating a harmonious and aesthetic bridge between modern and old architecture.


The combination of curved Barro elements and glass lend the business complex in Constance, Germany, a visually attractive transparency. The natural red colour successfully creates a link to the historical adjacent property.

Noble, pure and transparent – the volcanic grey façade of the administrative building in Silkeborg, Denmark.

General information

Notes

Tile thickness: 30 mm ± 1,5 mm Standard lengths: 400 – 1,500 mm Weight per m2: 42.0 – 44.0 kg The dimensions stated are centre-to-centre dimensions and refer to the centrejoint measurement both in terms of height and width.

In addition to standard lengths, variable lengths are possible. The product quality corresponds to at least EN 1304. Points of friction, e.g. through manufacture or transport are of no relevance to the standard values. Small colour deviations result from the production process. Please observe the important regulations and standards on the processing of ArGeTon® panels.

ArGeTon® technology Aluminium substructure, vertical Aluminium T substructure with vertical carrier rails Cleats of aluminium are attached to the existing wall by means of approved pins in horizontal centre distance, and with the spacing necessary for structural stability. The occurrence of fixed and sliding points must be ensured here in compliance with DIN 18516, Part 1. Vertical aluminium carrier profiles are inserted into the cleats (a special clamping spring enables exact adjustment). After alignment of the carrier profile, it is attached with a blank rivet. The T profiles are pre-holed preferably to the façade tiles pattern. ArGeTon® façade tiles are attached to the substructure with special clips at four points without being forced in, by means of self-tapping stainless-steel screws or aluminium hollow-drawn rivets. The procedure starts with the bottom row.

ArGeTon® technology Aluminium substructure, HORIZONTAL Aluminium T substructure with HORIZONTAL carrier rails The substructure consists of vertical angled base carrier profiles, which are anchored at the building with wall cleats. Horizontal carrier rails of aluminium are placed on the base substructure. The distance depends on the height in the grid of the ArGeTon® façade tiles, which are fastened with special brackets to the horizontal carrier rails.
