Rainscreen Support System

The NBK TERRART ceramic clay tile facade system, which is based on the rainscreen principle, is custom designed and engineered.

The vertical joints are backed by a support system which drains rainwater away from the cavity behind. The gaskets, together with balanced air pressure, discourages water from entering the wall cavity. The tile design allows for air to flow through “open joints”, which helps to balance air pressure in the cavity  behind the terracotta cladding elements with that outside air, hence, the term – pressure equalization.

Driven rainwater does not enter the cavity due to the overlapping joints (“protected openings”) and lack of pressure differential. The “back ventilation” assists in maintaining a dry cavity and negates the buildup of hot air, an additional benefit to the TERRART rainscreen system.
