COMPETENCE
FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS

Ceramic facades for more than 40 years

A facade is far more than just the protective shell of a building. Its design not only characterizes the building itself, but also influences – often visible from far away – the urban environment.

As leading ceramics manufacturer, AGROB BUCHTAL has extensive know-how in all fields of Architectural Ceramics. With this background, the company has been developing and producing ceramic facade systems setting standards for more than four decades: functionally, aesthetically and by their product quality “made in Germany”. Curtain-type, rear-ventilated facades optimizing the energy efficiency and economical balance of buildings play a central part in this context. High competence in building physics results in technically sophisticated substructures, which ensure an efficient mounting and a safe fastening of the panels. These constructions are the connecting element from the wall – via the insulating layer – to the facade cladding and support the realization of creative ideas. The In-House Planning Department is permanently further developing the various systems and accompanies the implementation of individual concepts world-wide – on request also on location at the construction site.
