Elemental Protection

Preventing water and moisture from penetrating a building, Shildan’s Terracotta Rainscreen Façade System works by carving out an internal cavity for air and wind to enter, equalizing pressure from within and outside the system, so water and moisture simply fall away 100% of the time. Made of the world’s oldest masonry material, terracotta, the high-performance rainscreen categorically seals out water, effectively eliminating air infiltration/exfiltration, reducing pressure on HVAC systems and yielding tremendous energy savings. With the ability to be customized almost endlessly, the rainscreen can be dreamed up in virtually any shape and color, with lengths up to 10-ft. and features up to 35% recycled content.
