A healthy home by nature - RÖBEN ceramics for facades and walls

01 of July '20

Building products made of clinker have high resistance to weather conditions and very rich colors - for these reasons they are widely used as a material for finishing facades of buildings, roofing, landscaping elements and on interior walls.

6 advantages of clinker facades

1 Durability

Clinker facades are second to none when it comes to durability - specialists estimate it at more than a century. The surface covered with clinker will maintain an unchanged color throughout its life, due to the fact that it does not fade when exposed to sunlight.

2 Resistance to weathering

Thanks to very low water absorption (up to 6% in the case of RÖBEN products manufactured in Środa Śląska), clinker bricks are resistant to water penetration, they are not afraid of any weather conditions, even severe frost or heavy rain.

3 Heat accumulation

Clinker is distinguished by its high heat accumulation. This means that it accumulates heat and keeps it for a long time, so that in houses with a clinker façade, it will be warm in winter and pleasantly cool in summer.

4. environmental friendliness

Brick is the most environmentally friendly building material, it is fired from natural raw materials - clay mixed with quartz and other minerals. As a result, for hundreds of years it has provided a healthy, natural microclimate for buildings built with it.

5 Versatility

Clinker brick will work well in both traditional, modern and post-industrial designs. Clinker can also be used for fencing and other landscaping elements, such as gazebos, benches and barbecues. Clinker bricks can also be used to finish interior design elements, such as a fireplace or wall sections.

6 High aesthetics

Clinker allows unlimited creativity - projects can use traditional-looking hand-formed bricks, as well as modern anthracite bricks or even mosaics of colors and patterns. Thanks to the variety of structures and formats that can be combined with each other, clinker opens up far more design possibilities than covering an exterior wall with plaster.

Clinker tiles for the wall - 6 trends and innovations

1 Variety of textures

Clinker tiles can be smooth, fluted, sandblasted, scalloped, battered, scratched... perhaps no other finishing material offers such a spectrum of surfaces. In terms of design, this provides unlimited possibilities for designers and investors.

2 Different formats

In addition to clinker tiles in standard format, the RÖBEN brand now offers more than a dozen in modern elongated formats - LDF (290 × 14 × 52 mm) and XLDF (365 × 14 × 52 mm). The use of tiles in elongated LDF and XLDF formats affects the perception of the plane lined with it, visually slimming it and giving it a more contemporary character.

3. multitude of colors

The color of the material is usually the first thing that investors pay attention to. This is not surprising, since color has a strong impact. In interiors it affects, among other things, the mood of the occupants: it promotes tranquility and concentration or, on the contrary, adds energy to action. RÖBEN's range is extremely wide - more than 100 colors.

4. combining formats and colors

By juxtaposing bricks in the standard NF format with extended LDF and XLDF formats, we open ourselves up to the possibility of achieving unprecedented effects. There is nothing more original than a clinker mosaic of colors and formats inside a house.

5. unique arrangement

Another way to create a unique wall is to arrange the tiles in a non-standard way. Nothing prevents you from forgetting the classics and laying them vertically or in a herringbone pattern, for example.

6. angle tiles

In addition to the traditional formats of available clinker and facing tiles, the RÖBEN brand offers angle tiles, with which it is possible to obtain a perfect imitation of a brick wall. The fact that tiles and not bricks have been used will be impossible to see with the naked eye.
