LudoSlate Premier

Overview

LudoSlate Terracotta Cladding

LudoSlate Premier consists of three widths of LudoSlate surface texture tiles made to offer a more authentic appearance.

 

DESIGN TRAITS

  • Sidelock Weather Channel: Allows the tiles to nest together and acts as a drainage channel for surface moisture
    on the tiles. The sidelock weather channel also allows for attachment of a stainless steel, concealed wind clip for
    added wind resistance and performance
  • Two (2) pre-punched fastener holes for attachment anchors
  • Engineered stiffening ribs on the back of the tile allow an increased tile strength while removing unnecessary
    weight

Colors & Finishes

THE ART & SCIENCE OF NEXCLAD COLOR

Terracotta by its very nature is warm, earthy, and inviting. Enhancing the natural qualities of terracotta by applying a glaze mixture prior to firing can create spectacular colors unable to be replicated on other building materials. Creating the color of a terracotta tile is part science and part art. A natural range of tones is a feature within any given color. The range of tones that arise from the manufacturing process is a normal and very desirable feature of natural clay tile—imparting richness, character, and a dimensional appearance to the installed product The high-temperature firing process used at our manufacturing facility produces vibrant colors that do not fade, spall, effloresce, or significantly change over time. Our color glazes are kiln-fired at extreme temperatures during production, fusing the color into the tile, and ensuring that the original tones and hues are retained for generations. This is why include color in our industry-leading 75-year material warranty.
We pride ourselves in our long history of color mastery and being recognized as an industry expert in glazed terracotta tile. With over 50 designer color blends and the ability to custom-match nearly any hue, the color possibilities are endless.

CUSTOM TEXTURES

Our skilled craftsmen can recreate a number of textures that authentically replicate the surface of age-old terracotta tiles. Custom textures can be applied to match historic applications or to meet your specific design aesthetic. Surface textures can create unique effects with colors by varying light reflectances from the tile and reduce glare. Many tile textures are applied by hand which allows each clay tile to have a unique, handmade look. Textures can be combined to create a unique appearance or we can work with you to create a new custom surface texture.
