FRONTEK

Colours & Finishes

Frontek extruded porcelain façade panels are available in a wide range of finishes that mimic the look and feel of wood, stone and metallic panel types.

TEXTURED

The latest trends in exterior design dictate that the texture of the surface takes on increasing importance. We see and enjoy it in art, nowadays artists invite us to touch and caress the surface of their works. Discover with the sense of touch what is visible to be able to appreciate the beauty proposed by rough, brush hammered surfaces.

NATURE

This collection offers a multitude of finishes inspired by natural rocks, endowing the building with the elegance we all desire and combining with the advantages provided by alvelolar porcelain. Our exclusive extrusion production process allows us to reproduce in a very short time what nature takes centuries to achieve, improving the properties of quarry stones and respecting the environment.

METALLIC

Get to know our exclusive design models to dress the facade with metallic sparkles while maintaining the many advantages of technological extrusion ceramics, among which its great lightness and durability stand out.

Naturline Colours

This is a perfect option to endow the façade with the delicacy, distinction and warmth that wood provides, but with the technical advantages that extruded porcelain gives it. Choosing any model from this collection you will get a skin of the building, inspired by the warmest vision of nature, with the tranquillity that is respecting our forests, and with the confidence that its facade will resist without altering itself under the most demanding environmental conditions.

Stonecreate Colours 

Manage to take your designs beyond the graphic to play with shapes, spaces and light. Through grooves and gutters, you will be able to give new alternatives to the design of the facades.

Woodcreate Colour

Eternal collections that transport us to a new texture while maintaining our own identity.
