The facade can be considered the most important signifier of a building as the shell separating the outside from the inside. The expressive power of this protective shell should not be underestimated, because the appearance of the architecture has a decisive influence on the entire environment. GSWRAP knows that, and we are now able to provide you with the highest quality facades for your building.

The ceramic facade offers all the advantages expected of a sustainable building material:
In addition, the ceramic facade offers all the advantages expected of a sustainable building material: Made from the natural raw material clay, free of heavy metals and other harmful additives, a ceramic brick facade offers optimum thermal, fire and sound insulation and is a good investment for many years, which over time will lose none of its original beauty. In addition, rear ventilation ensures a balanced, healthy indoor climate and contributes positively to the overall issue of climate protection.
Kind of random with a system
The fact that the system is not only farsightedly well thought out, but also a visual pleasure, is shown by the many projects that have been realized and which speak for themselves. The clear focus of the project was sustainability, to which the ceramic facade panels also made a decisive contribution. The grooved elements were produced in their own special formats and are particularly fascinating because of the semi-transparent glaze, which lends the material a natural appearance. Due to the fine relief of the panels, the color additionally changes between light yellow and deep green depending on the incidence of light, giving the facade an incomparable liveliness.
Leaving nothing to chance
GSWRAP’s ceramic facades can be used for the corners of the building, curved ceramic elements glazed. These elements were manufactured using a specially developed production process and, to date, are still unique.
The framing of the windows and corners of the building is soft and undulating thanks to the 60,000 individual parts, coupled with a delicate change of color between shades of grey, red and blue, depending on the levels of available light. GSWRAP can help you decide the perfect color shade for your ceramic facades for your project.
Giving architecture a face
These and many other examples show the wide variety of GSWRAP’s ceramic facades, and yet they all have one thing in common: they convey an important message to their immediate surroundings and do so with a strong expressiveness that remains unobtrusive. In addition, they also convey the uniqueness of built ideas in which sustainability plays an increasingly important role.
