Award-Winning Ventilated Façade Systems

Together with British architectural innovator Shackerley, Crossville brings a truly fresh facade solution to American design—sustainable, ventilated exterior cladding systems with all the beauty and brawn of Crossville Porcelain Stone®.

For Buildings that Breathe, Beautifully

Internationally patented and industry-acclaimed, SureClad Porcelain Stone® Ventilated Façades’ open-joint design in durable, versatile porcelain promotes fresh air circulation, continuous insulation, and advanced protection from weather and wear. The result? Beautiful, breathable facades that will conserve energy, combat the elements, and elevate both exterior and interior environments for years to come.


SureClad’s enhanced-airflow design alleviates mold- and mildew-causing condensation and deters insect and pest habitation, so the building—and its occupants—can breath easier. Its excellent acoustic and thermal insulation reduces the demand for heating and cooling, resulting in energy savings of up to 25 percent. And because it’s made with Crossville’s proprietary Porcelain Stone finish, it comes in an endlessly customizable array of colors and styles to suit nearly any design and climate.

The patented SureClad Porcelain Stone® Access system makes for fast, simple, safe installation and cost-savings. Factory fitted and ready for installation upon delivery, the pre-drilled, mechanically fastened system is simpler to install than other ventilated façades. It allows for individual panel replacement for quicker, easier re-imaging or repair, which can add up to considerable savings in labor costs versus traditional system installations.

Crossville SureClad® ventilated facades have sustainably enhanced the exteriors of many landmark buildings, including:

  • Hospitals
  • Universities
  • Hotels
  • Retail developments
  • Offices
