Tempio Terracotta | Façade Systems

FKL 2/16

The Tempio terracotta tile rain-screen/ventilated facade system offers various aesthetic qualities for building facades. The numerous advantages include improved thermal and acoustic properties, extended warranty periods, low embodied energy ratings, ease of installation, non-combustible fire rating and sustainable production processes.

Ventilated or Rainscreen Facade systems are now the external wall construction systems of choice for architects, facade engineers, builders, contractors, and developers alike.
This evolution in facade technologies ensures the quality of outcome from not just an aesthetic point of view but also in terms of non-combustibility, thermal and acoustic insulation, and, most importantly, ongoing weather-tightness for the life of the building.

A Ventilated Facade system consists of:

  • A waterproof/vapour permeable Rigid Air Barrier (RAB board) or frame wrap to the outside of the frame to form the back pan of the cavity.
  • Insulation
  • Installation of the façade substrate, typically manufactured in aluminium
  • Installation of an open façade system that allows moisture to penetrate the façade while allowing fast an efficient drying of the internal cavity area.

Tempio Rainscreen FK System

This system has open vertical and overlapping horizontal joints. Composed of brackets, vertical T profile, horizontal rails and metallic springs which have an anti-rattling function.

When installing it, the facade contractor will constantly be checking levels and the plane of the facade. The contractor will install the aluminium substructure to the frame of the precast concrete substrate.

Open joints improve the ventilation of the facade.The main advantages of this facade system is that it is relatively easy install at approximately 28kg/m2. This makes it a light, cost-efficient and reliable system.

All Tempio Tiles can be customised to your preferred design/shape by producing custom terracotta extrusion dyes reflecting true flexibility of design.

Tempio Rainscreen FS System

The Tempio FS System is an innovative system of vertical and horizontal overlapping joints that limit water penetration into the ventilated cavity at the rear. As the FS tiles are thicker than the FK tiles, the FS tiles offer greater impact resistance and superior wind load resistance at height.

All tiles in the Tempio range are quite simple to replace if they are ever assessed as being beyond repair. It’s placing, with a wider perpend, fairly marks the horizontality of the pieces.

Tempio High Profile Pieces

All the Tempio high-profile tiles were custom produced for individual projects and are now available as standard tiles, as the custom dies have been retained by Tempio.

These tiles were developed (along with the associated custom fixing systems) in collaboration with project architects, DCA Facade Systems and the Technical Team at Tempio.
