A fit for purpose stone, made by crushing & combining natural rocks, sands, minerals, oxides and feldspar, then mechanically re-creating thousands of years of mother earth’s natural forces, by man’s pressing and kiln firing technologies.
Porcelain Stoneware Tiles
Porcelain is a ceramic material created by heating raw matter, such as clays, sands, silicates and feldspar in a kiln to temperatures between 1,200 and 1,400°C. Properties associated with porcelain include considerable strength & hardness, a high resistance to chemical attack & thermal shock and a water absorption rate of less the 0.5% percent. These properties arise mainly from the formation of glass and the mineral mullite (a form of aluminium silicate) within the fired body at these high temperatures.
Stoneware is a category of clay, derived from natural rock (igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic) and is distinguished primarily by its firing and maturation temperature. In essence, it is man-made stone. Stoneware is recognised as being dense, impermeable and hard enough to resist scratching by steel point.
Tiles are a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal or glass. The word is derived from the French word tuile, which is, in turn, from the Latin word tegula, meaning a tile composed of baked clay.

Roca Ventilated Facade System
The Roca Ventilated Façade System consists of fitting porcelain stoneware panels on an aluminium structure that has previously been fixed to an existing façade or substrate, which does not require special preparation. The porcelain tile panels are joined to the structure by metal hooks or fixtures, so no fixing or grouting material is required.
The system is designed for new buildings and for renovation, offering interesting advantages compared to traditional fixing systems. It can be used for a wide variety of applications, including houses, blocks of apartments, office buildings, shopping centres, hospitals, schools and so on.
