techniques and industry leading performance in all
requirements: manufacturing consistency, numerous
colour variations, product customization, ease of
installation, versatility, insulation performance and
While other materials may challenge terracotta in some
of these fields, few acheive all of the following qualities:
- Environmentally Friendly
- 100% Natural
- Fire Resistant
- Impact Resistant
- Low Thermal Conductivity
External Thermal Insulation
Faced with today’s environmental challenges, insulation is
crucial to both new constructions and renovation projects.
External wall insulation, a must for energy efficiency.
- Improves comfort during summer and winter
- Lowers heat loss of the building envelope
- Helps to significantly reduce energy consumption
Terracotta Colours | Material, Texture and Designs

Reducing our energy consumption and CO2 emissions
TERREAL has an energy consumption control programme with a target of 20% less CO2 emissions per ton produced by 2020. All our production units have undergone a thorough energy review, which revealed numerous areas in which savings could be made: heat recovery from furnaces, heat exchangers, etc.
Other ideas are being developed such as baking products using biomethane produced from the fermentation of waste.
With the ECOCEA project, the Chagny plant is the first tile production unit in the world to use household waste from surrounding towns to produce biomethane and use it to bake their tiles. More than one third of the tile production plant’s energy needs will be met in this way.
Reducing the impact of our activities on the environment
Every TERREAL site measures and regularly declares all its impacts, and implements optimization measures: limiting dust emissions, flue gas purification, recycling industrial waste. Before beginning to exploit its quarries, TERREAL conducts an initial examination of the fauna and flora, establishes a biodiversity conservation plan and then afterwards rehabilitates the area: reforestation, re-cultivation, creating an area of water, etc.
