Terracotta Rainscreen Cladding
The LOPO Terracotta Panels are adopted by architects for Nanjing Metro Line S3.The terracotta rainscreen system can effectively prevent most snow or rainwater from penetrating into the facade. Furthermore, it can collect a small amount of rainwater and direct it to flow outward from the back of the system so as to protect the wall structures.
The 3D inkjet technology makes the texture on the terracotta panels more natural, vivid, diverse and richer. In terms of stone surface and wood surface texture, 3D inkjet terracotta tile has the possibility to replace stone and natural wood materials, and embraces unlimited design possibilities for the building facade or interior walls.
Jintai Plaza adopted LOPO mixed color terracotta panels,each facade plane of mixed color shades gives the architecture sense of layering, breaking away from the boring monochromatic facade.
Glazed terracotta panel have higher abrasion resistance than ordinary terracotta panel, and they are easier to clean. As a curtain wall material, it has the advantages of environmental protection and energy saving, moisture-proof, breathable and sound insulation, rich color and long-lasting as new and wide application range.
The terracotta-panel curtain wall for the library comes from LOPO’s classic brick-red, 18mm-thick Terracotta Rainscreen series, which offers a display surface width of 200/400/500 mm. A total supply of nearly 5,000 square meters is dedicated to this project.
LOPO produced terracotta wall panels with sandblast surface for this project and customized a small part of micro-carved terracotta. Although it is not the main component of the building facade material, but its presence brings vitality to the building by organically integrating different building materials and preserving architectural elements and city’s culture.
The design of the building facade of the Hunan University of Technology and Commerce mainly adopts LOPO terracotta cladding and glass curtain wall. The total area of the terracotta panels of this project is about 20,000 square meters.
The architects chose similar color terracotta panels, such as light yellow and red-orange, and created a lively and bright architectural image through the color block distribution and facade segmentation. For this project, LOPO produced 27mm Terracotta Panel with the surface height of 70 cm, 55 cm and 50 cm (including window sills), and the total quantity supplied was 16,000 square meters.
LOPO provided a total of 16,000 square meters of terracotta facade materials for the facade project of Everbright Environmental Energy Power Plant.
LOPO provided nearly 80,000 square meters of terracotta cladding products for this project, including a variety of Long format Brick, handmade clay tile, terracotta panels and terracotta baguettes.
The designer spent nearly a year working with LOPO suppliers to develop a Terracotta Baguette material that fully restores the sense of soil. In addition to maintaining the high weather resistance and high water permeability of the fired terracotta, its mottled color difference needs to be fully used for a long time. Changes with air, ultraviolet rays and rain.
The terracotta panel has stable technical performance, strong impact resistance, high temperature resistance, strong frost resistance, good flame retardancy, and safe fire protection. In an open space like Xiuwen Stadium, choosing a terracotta facade panel curtain wall system as the facade material of the stadium can provide good thermal insulation for the wall structure of the stadium building.
The inner wall veneer of Tongchuan museum is decorated with LOPO terracotta panels and terracotta baguettes with smooth colors and simple styles, which shows the unique charm of the ancient city of ceramic culture.
This “China’s first university without a wall” has a total investment of 7.53 billion yuan and consists of 48 single projects. It is also one of the super large projects that LOPO terracotta facade panels participate in.
LOPO Terracotta is the designated supplier of exterior wall materials for the third phase of Optical Valley Building.
