NeaCera’s pre-engineered, Lift & Lock installation method, is a non-sequential system. Meaning that any panel on the elevation can be removed or replaced without having to remove any of the surrounding panels.
Most hollow-core terra-cotta rainscreen systems require the panels to be mounted to the sub-construction using mechanical fasteners. The result is that they are installed in a sequential arrangement starting at the base of the elevation and working upwards.
If you’re wondering how we inhibit unintended panel removal, our system uses security tabs on the first 6 to 8 feet of the elevation.
Non-Sequential Installation Benefits:
NeaCera uses a unique Lift & Lock Installation method that was designed to eliminate the need for clips, gaskets, or caulk/adhesive. These add unnecessary cost to the project, as well as complicates installation of the product in the field, burdening installers with additional elements and time. Zero-clips means zero holes drilled, and NeaCera does not require the use of any power tools outside of the application of Support Profile.
Whether you choose Matte, Satin, Gloss, Glazed, or Custom color, NeaCera Panels include Lifetime Graffiti Protection that is efficient, permanent & immediately effective.
NeaCera Lifetime Graffiti Protection is inherent in the surface of the panels and will not wear off, rub off or fade, no matter how often graffiti is applied and removed. In sharp contrast, post-applied Graffiti Protection options merely coat the surface of a façade and frequently need to be re-applied.
Tools & Steps:
Denatured alcohol and a soft cloth are all it takes to completely remove graffiti from NeaCera Panels. Apply the denatured alcohol to the cloth and rub in a firm circular motion over the affected area. No other terra-cotta cladding panel on the market offers Lifetime Graffiti Protection that rivals NeaCera.

Avenere Cladding’s NeaCera Terra-cotta can be installed on various pre-constructed wall assemblies, transported to the jobsite on trailers and then hoisted up onto the building; a process known as panelization.
Erectors love the non-sequential installation of NeaCera as they can leave out the NeaCera Panels where the wall assemblies connect. This process enables them to hoist the panelized assemblies onto the building. Finally, the remaining NeaCera Panels can be installed over the panelized wall joints, resulting in no visible seams.
