Ceramic facades

Revolutionising a 3000-year-old industry

Extrusion has been used for thousands of years to manufacture ceramic facades and tiles. Now, z.trusion® opens new opportunities for architects and interior designers to explore new ground with indented patterns and structures in ceramic facades and tiles. The rational production in a single step means that features that were previously far too costly for large scale production are now entirely within reach.

“By combining Tonality’s expertise in ceramic facade systems with z.trusion®, we will create a new paradigm in the industry"

Thomas Bader, owner of Tonality and the Leipfinger-Bader Group

Design freedom as never before

Unlocking a potential far beyond what conventional extrusion technology can achieve, z.trusion® makes it possible to create indented patterns and structures for both weight and material savings, as well as just great new looks.
