Shackerley publishes 'inspirational' new Sureclad brochure >


Shackerley (Holdings) Group Limited is seeking to inspire and inform architects with its new Sureclad brochure which features an impressive ‘Gallery’ of the company’s ceramic granite ventilated facade projects across the UK and Eire. The 64-page brochure clearly demonstrates the enormous scope for ceramic granite as a facade material and reveals how Sureclad facades have been used to stunning effect to create landmark buildings in the education, healthcare, retail, residential, general commercial and hotel sectors.

The ‘Gallery’ includes some of the UK’s largest and most demanding ceramic granite ventilated cladding projects such as the Paragon in Brentford, the Sage HQ in Newcastle upon Tyne and the high profile Media City development in Salford, still under construction. Of interest to many specifiers will be the testimonials provided by leading architects who are specifying Sureclad ceramic granite as a contemporary and totally natural and logical alternative to hewn stone in its original quarried state.

The new brochure also reveals a number of new additions to the Sureclad range. The very latest ceramic granite facade options include innovative ‘metallic’ finishes which shimmer in the sunlight, ‘travertine’ panels with a naturalistic texture and appearance, and new highly polished black panels in a 1m2 format. Whilst most of the new brochure is dedicated to ceramic granite, Shackerley has recently extended its range of Sureclad facade materials and these new options are also featured. New large format engineered stone panels measuring up to 3060x1230mm and in 20, 30 and 40mm thicknesses are now offered in a wide range of styles, alongside a collection of large format single skin terracotta panels.

Like Shackerley’s ceramic granite, all the engineered stone and terracotta panels are prefabricated in Lancashire at Shackerley’s ISO9001 quality certified production facility and are then installed in conjunction with a Sureclad facade support system. A patented undercut anchor process is employed to enable the panels to be fixed mechanically (to comply with BS 5385 Part 2) in an invisible, safe and stress free manner.
