Soladrilho Terracotta Cladding
Sourced from raw, natural clay, Soladrilho terracotta cladding, formerly supplied by Terreal, is a rainscreen solution that utilises overlapping horizontal joints to offer specifiers and designers a wide range of design possibilities.
By utilising unique carrier systems, Soladrilho terracotta tiles can be installed both horizontally and vertically.
Not only do these systems give architects and specifiers design freedom but it also offers efficient construction for installers. The lightweight tiles mean less strain on your project substrate, saving on on-site energy and labour costs.
LBT Brick & Facades have been UK agents for the Soladrilho terracotta rainscreen cladding system for over 20 years. This partnership means we are able to offer the most comprehensive range of tiles, planks and sunscreens to the UK construction industry in a vast combination of profiles and glazes.

How we can help
Due to their material make-up, the Soladrilho clay tiles can be created in custom colours, with tailored finishes, shapes and sizes also available.
As well as these bespoke options, the Soladrilho tiles are available in standard through-body colours that reflect the organic materials in which they’re made from. From champagne and salmon, to coffee and slate grey, both light and dark tones can be utilised to transform your facade and either contrast or harmonise with the surrounding architecture.
As well as offering neutral tones, we can also supply a wide variety of glazed colours, covering the whole RAL range, in matt and gloss, that offer customers a striking effect.
So that you can see the colours in person and see how the terracotta complements your other facade materials, our teams are happy to supply product samples. Email us your requirements or give us a call and we’ll get back to you with samples and design guidance.
