Stepped tile panel

Profile Description


The origins of metal panel cladding systems for building facades can be traced to the middle of the 20th century.
Besides conventional façade manufacturers, specialist metal working companies are increasingly involved in the implementation of such projects.


The optics of a facade clad in stepped tile panels is similar to the classic wood panelling of weatherboarding.

Due to their simple installation, stepped tile panels are being used for both, technically and optically sophisticated facades on new buildings and for reconstructions with rear-ventilated curtain facade structures..


The stepped tile panels are provided with tongue and groove edges on the two longitudinal edges, i.e. an insertion side and a pocket side. The economic production of the panels is usually carried out by means of profile-shaping machines like the Schlebach type QUADRO.

After mounting of the panel on the pocket side using welt joints, the insertion side of the next panel is slotted in and also reattached to the substructure that is often of lightweight construction. This assembly process results in an installation system with concealed fasteners.



In line with sheet metal techniques, connections and terminations are frequently formed into flashings.
