Green & Sustainable
TERREAL Facade offers a sustainable development approach for its terra cotta wall cladding in accordance with the NF P 01-010
Environmental and Health Declaration Sheets (FDES). Thanks to the Group’s dynamic approach, TERREAL Facade is committed to an
environmentally friendly approach throughout the manufacturing process for all of its products.
A single priority: the quality of the terra cotta material
TERREAL Facade meticulously selects the clays from its various production sites to ensure the natural character and longevity of
finished product. Produced from abundant natural clay, TERREAL Facade combines millennia old craftsmanship with a state of the art
firing process to produce a terra cotta panel that is not only beautiful but will also last a century. At the end of its life, all terra cotta waste from production sites is recycled and used as filler in quarry access roads. For greater transparency, every “FDES” gives information for each product such as its ecological footprint, its traceability after its life cycle and the recycling of its waste, etc.
A single objective: to create a solution appropriate to the demands
of eco-construction but which remains aesthetic and unique Beyond the terra cotta material, the Terreal wall solution integrates
into an external insulation system, thus reducing thermal bridges and greenhouse gas emissions, providing a more comfortable
environment in both summer and winter.
A single mission: always to go that step further
Thanks to the involvement of its production sites and its research and development center, TERREAL Facade meets the challenge of
sustainable development in the search for new fixing systems and firing methods, the stages that require the greatest consumption of energy resources.
A single initiative: the dematerialization of our communication methods
TERREAL Facade has made available to everyone an extremely comprehensive and updated web site, so as to reduce the environmental
impacts of printing and to allow you to save space on your shelves. The FDES, technical approvals and other documentation on the whole of our range (cladding, sunscreens, acoustic products, bricks and slips on insulation material) are therefore also available in the product section of this website.
