All LockClad’s unique methods of water management are incorporated in our tiles.
It is rear-ventilated and water penetrating the façade is drained to the outer face at every horizontal joint.
LockClad tiles are made from highly durable,frost-proof English clay. The use of pigments and artificial colouring methods are avoided wherever possible. The resulting smooth finish is natural and will last the lifetime of the product. Following high temperature firing, LockClad tiles are accurately machined to a wide range of finished sizes. LockClad also provides a choice of two different joint widths.
The primary support structure and sigma rails can be installed before tiling commences. Installation is fast and simple and can be carried out in any direction and sequence.
Each LockClad tile is securely and independently retained on the supporting rail by fixing clips, allowing individual tiles to be removed and reinstated. LockClad is designed to be fixed to most substrates – including masonry, concrete, steel and timber frame systems, and lightweight walling panels.
