Longoton

Technical

The LONGOTON® system sets the benchmark for terracotta raincreen system panels, offering the largest terracotta tile available. Its twin skinned structure is similar to the ALPHATON® tile, however its thickness is typically a minimum of 40mm, depending on the profile selected. A choice between horizontal and vertical fixing formats provides maximum design flexibility.

LONGOTON® facades are almost always bespoke designed to suit your individual project requirement, offering the designer complete flexibility in profile, colour, finish and texture. If you have a terracotta project, please contact us either by phone or email, preferably at the early stages and we will arrange to visit you and discuss our ideas with you to develop the optimum solution with you.

The LONGOTON® Duoskin tiles are extruded and fired from high quality clays offering a very robust tile that is free from cracks, fissures, discolorations or any other defects, which may adversely affect strength, durability or appearance.
