A2O have worked on numerous buildings using Terracotta tiles as a built-up, ventilated rainscreen system or mounted onto a composite carrier panel. 

Technical considerations include: accommodation of movement in the backing structure without putting stress on the terracotta tiles; design for good drainage and accurate detailing of interfaces with other systems – usually PPC aluminium.

A2O worked with supply chain partner NBK at Winchester Sports & Leisure Complex to design and install optical terracotta baguettes supported from a Curtain Wall system.
