… it’s the new excellent quality of“TONALITY.®”

CREATON is renowned for its demands of quality. A demand

taken on every day used to improve and strengthen our

products. The result is fired clay tiles that – parallel to our

knowledge – are continuously developed and improved.

Starting from the roof, continuing over the façade, down to

the floor. Each new CREATON product is the result of more

than 100 years of experience and commitment in the area

of ceramics. Thus, imaginative combinations of personal

choices of colours combined with superior quality advanta-

ges are emerging time and time again.

In its efforts to achieve quality, CREATON has attained a

high level of excellence. With “TONALITY” we have develo-

ped our cladding range in a unique and so far unpreceden-

ted variety of colours. “TONALITY”-“CLASSIC” blazes new

trails in the unlimited possibilities of cladding design. Dye

penetrated fired clay tiles of the finest colours inspire in a

well thought out system. The user-friendly installation, the

extremely variable design of joints and the sensitive and

subtle selection of surfaces round off the ceramic cladding

system for new buildings and renovations – for outstanding

possibilities of creative design throughout Europe.


two façade programmes are offered. Together, they open a

new arena of choices: in the selection of colours and surro-

undings, in the diversification of installation and applicati-

on, in quality and economic viability.

Resistance is burnt in during the baking process.

The advantage of the CREATON products manufactured in

“KERALIS”-quality already starts with the processing of

the raw materials:


is the result of sintering at approx. 1,200 °C.

● We use only the fine-grained, high-quality

raw materials.

● With a lower bending tensile strength we

achieve a higher strength of materials.

● The system weight does not exceed

35 kg per m2.

Fascinating in and out:

The CREATON – “KERALIS”-Procedure.

With “TONALITY”-“CLASSIC”, CREATON again achieved a

breakthrough in quality advancement which could only

be realized with the new and most modern European pro-

duction lines. The superior processing of our high-quality

“KERALIS”-raw materials as well as the “HIGH BAKING

FACTOR” are the guarantors of this new calibre of quality.

Our cladding tiles obtain a fascinating coloring and

appearance in and out. Double-dried clay is processed to

finest powdered clay, completely dyed in finely gra-

duated ratios of color mixtures and subse-

quently burnt at temperatures exceeding

1,200 °C. For an overall quality of each

and every cladding tile – in the trusted

CREATON roofing quality.

● The “HIGH BAKING FACTOR” is the result of baking tem-

peratures of approx 1,200 °C.

● The graffiti protection will last the entire serviceable life

● The protective effect exists as of the first day, i.e. also

during the building phase. The brightening up or rene-

wal of the protection necessary for conventional

systems is not required.

Creative colour design made to last.

CREATON graffiti protection – all gone in justone wipe.

With conventional systems, a graffiti protection must be

applied later on and will cost 12 to 15,-# per m2. This pro-

tection consists of a waxlike coat that has a detrimental

effect on the gloss of the tile and often leads to the occur-

rence of specking. In addition, this coat will lose its effect

after approx. 3 years depending on the weather conditions

it is exposed to and must be applied again. Moreover, this

coat must be renewed after every removal of graffiti, too.

Latest manufacturing technologies make it possible:

Adaptive system.

The bearing profile with variable depth allows for an opti-

mal adjustment to the structural requirements. Even tiles

of different length can be combined on one bearing pro-

file. Joint widths of 2 -30 mm, open or closed joints, reset

or flush executions and various through ventilations can

be realized.

Individual sub-construction.

Our desires to reach perfect solutions go beyond the tile

body. Even in the field of sub-constructions, “TONALITY”

offers many different variations. Have you decided in

favor of an aluminum sub-construction, with open or clo-

sed joints, natural or even color-coated or anodized? The

flexible sub-construction always allows for a joint design

that can be adjusted to the overall appearance or even

for subtle nuances according to your wishes. In respect

of format as well as color design.

The color game.

Especially deserving of mentioning is the color design of

the joints of this system. Aluminum joints in powder-coa-

ted RAL-colors can be matched with the colors of your

cladding tiles or be set in contrast with the tiles at any

time. Whether open, closed, colored or semimachined –

the metal joint profile of CREATON always constitutes a

luxurious and flexible solution that responds to your

building or renovation projects individually.

Convincing arguments.

A minimal construction height can be realized starting from

a construction height of 26 mm. As this is a perfect advan-

tage in the renovation of façades, it will help you reduce the

depth and thus avoids costly connections and reveals. The

installation works on site are reduced as well: Joint and bea-

ring profile are tightly connected to each other already by

the manufacturer. This guarantees a faster installation and

is thus time and cost saving.

The RIVCLINCH connection and jointing technique used in

this context has been proving its worth in aircraft and

vehicle construction for some time now as a high-tech

connection of bearing and joint profiles. It stands for hig-

hest safety and durability, offering clear advantages com-

pared with the conventional connections:

● Higher resistance than with conventional techniques

● Premachining and finishing are not required

● The damaging of the surface of coated materials is

herewith avoided.

The CLS-Classic profile system – for classic joint design.

Reliability over many years.

Especially where economical factors weight heavily and

are to be coupled with trusted quality, the planners of

façades count on the classic bridge profile. This alumi-

num extruded profile offers optimal values with regard to

structural analysis at a small installation depth. Easy for-

mation of loose and fixed points through adjusted

system components.

The convex shaped cladding tile allows a perfect creative design managing even curves.

“TONALITY®”– creative construction.

The excitement is in the detail.

An all round system.

We have attached much importance to the perfect interplay

of installation and appearance of the “TONALITY” cladding

system. For if the branded products of CREATON are inten-

ded to transform European building tradition into contem-

porary solutions, our partners must be given latitude for

play regarding every detail. This is the objective of our

new all encompassing system.

Exchange in a blink of an eye.

Each individual tile body can easily and quickly be exchan-

ged. This is allowed for by the simple hanging and unhan-

ging of the system. This considerable advantage compared

to clamped systems prevents the continuous building

deterioration caused by damaged façades. “TONALITY”

equates to farsighted value preservation.

Tile locking system.

With “TONALITY” the quick exchange is additionally

accompanied by a secure protection against dismantling.

This simple protection against dismantling is optionally

available at any time.Simple drilling assures high flexibility and quick installation.

Beauty must not be expensive.

Economic viability at the power of four – to make creative building design pay for everybody!

“TONALITY®”– creative economic viability.

1. Investment

“TONALITY” will offer you all the benefits of a high quality

ceramic façade combined with unbeatable value for

money. Series production in the most European produc-

tion lines allows for unprecedented quality and acquisiti-

on costs.

2. Building preparation

The highest possible degree of off-site prefabrication –

away from the building site – will provide optimal prepa-

ration. With the “TONALITY” system, the schedule will be

absolutely flexible. Installation will not be affected by

weather conditions at any time.

3. Installation

Time is money and “TONALITY” installation is quick. Due

to it’s sophisticated construction – and thus only few

anchorage points – the work involved for the positioning

and drilling of the boreholes is reduced considerably. Tile

bodies are inserted without any additional retaining

clamps. Insert them and there you are!

4. Maintenance

If you decide in favour of “TONALITY” you eliminate unde-

sired maintenance costs from your future planning. As

the high-quality CREATON façade requires low maintenan-

ce and is dirt-repellent. Even repairs or the entire redesign

are a simple matter. Each cladding tile can be individually

exchanged by non-destructive means.

Page 20: Tonality Cladding


“TONALITY®”– creative sun and sight protection.

Modern Architecturewith Baguette andLamella tiles.

This is a must.

Truly creative cladding design also offers the possibility to

integrate sun and sight protection into the building design

from the beginning. The “TONALITY”-Baguette tile is the

ideal perfection of the “CLASSIC” cladding tile. It matches

well with the burnt-clay façade and additionally allows for

an appealing architecture even as a harmonious element of

design in combinations with metal, ceramic, glass and pla-

stered façades.

Indoors or outdoors, horizontally or vertically.

The prefabricated elements are available in two standard

sizes and can quickly be installed on the building site.

Whether on the external walls of downtown buildings –

within the protection of historic monuments, for instance

– or used as dividers in the course of the completion of

interiors, Baguette tiles of CREATON excite due to the

popular and aesthetic “TONALITY”-appeal. In the event of

large-scale building projects, we would be pleased to also

offer you the tiles in special formats. It is entirely up to

your creativity, whether you arrange the CREATON

Baguettes vertically or horizontally, lengthwise or crosswi-

se. Even the steel or aluminum sub-construction offers

much room for design – in the choice of colors, shades of

black or the metallic appearance. CREATON lamella and

Baguette tiles are also available ready-made in lengths of

up to 1,800 mm in individual segments.

The finest processing of our raw materials secures the

extremely dense structure of the entire tile body, with a

high level of waterproofing being the result. This reduces

the soiling risk of the façade and prevents additional tile

treatment. Resulting in siliconisation not being necessary.
