Each new TONALITY product is the result of more than 100 years of experience and commitment in the area of ceramics. Thus, imaginative combinations of personal choices of colours combined with superior quality advantages are emerging time and time again. "TONALITY" has developed a cladding range in a unique and so far unprecedented variety of colours. "TONALITY"-"CLASSIC" blazes new trails in the unlimited possibilities of cladding design. Dye penetrated fired clay tiles of the finest colours inspire in a well thought out system. The user-friendly installation, the extremely variable design of joints and the sensitive and subtle selection of surfaces round off the ceramic cladding system for new buildings and renovations - for outstanding possibilities of creative design throughout the World.

Ceramic is about selecting what face you want the building to present: - colour, finish, size of panel. From there the design, with assistance from Engineered Assemblies, takes on engineering. Simple. Installation with floor height rails is simple, fast and predictable.

Ceramic is most economical in big open walls. It's a perfect new idea instead of the ubiquitous aluminum panel. A chance for a new branding of the buildings.
