Known for architectural ceramics that embody superb manufacturing and leading designs by traditional artisans, INAX was founded with Frank Lloyd Wright after producing the terracotta for the famous Imperial Hotel, Tokyo in 1924.

Architectural ceramics provide a beautiful, maintenance free alternative to paint and render and a sculptural surface with textural character that cannot be achieved using normal composite cladding panels. INAX exterior ceramics create a seamless aesthetic, effectively covering joins in concrete slabs and wrapping crisply around right angles using precisely-crafted mitred corner pieces. Many of the INAX designs can also be used on curved walls.

Established in 1928, INAX has a long history based in Japanese ceramic craftsmanship and expertise, producing high quality products that have been rigorously tested over many years.

Exterior ceramics are renowned not only for their ease of maintenance but also for their ability to extend building longevity, this is evidenced in the large number of timber framed buildings in Japan that have engineered architectural wall cladding, effectively protecting them from moisture deterioration over time. The majority of the architectural ceramics by INAX have been designed and carefully engineered to be installed without grout, ensuring that the building structure is protected from the elements. The elasticity inherent in the ceramic adhesive replaces the job that the grout would traditionally undertake.

The advantage of this is that it avoids the development of potential unsightly grout cracks due to undue building movement. These carefully engineered architectural ceramics effectively protect the structure from rain and other environmental elements while maintaining their original colour, form and unique textural beauty. INAX complies with Environmental Management Systems ISO14001 and INAX ceramics contain a minimum 40% recycled material content.
