Standard Textures All standard TAKTL textures are available in the full range of standard colors. Standard Flat Texture panels (Smooth, Rough 1, and Rough 2) are 5/8″ (15.9mm) thick. Raised Texture panels (Crinkle, Reeds, Shadows, Rio and Arbos 1) measure 5/8″ (15.9mm) thick at the shallowest points in the pattern. Arbos 2 measures 3/4″ (19.05mm) thick at the shallowest point in the pattern.

Introducing SHADOWS The newest addition to our growing portfolio of standard and custom textures, SHADOWS was designed with three dimensional variation in surface texture to provide a subtle shift in light and movement throughout the day. Available in standard dimensions up to 4×12 feet and our full range of colors and finishes.

Please contact our Technical Sales Team for more information and to request samples.

RIO A collaboration between our design team and in-house manufacturing experts, RIO’s organic pattern casts varied shadows to create visual depth and motion. Available in a variety of colors, finishes and sizes, RIO is equally well-suited for interior public spaces or the most demanding exterior facade and rainscreen applications. RIO is available in standard dimensions up to 4×12 feet in our full range of finishes. It is one of ten standard patterns in our lineup of flat and raised textures.

Custom Textures and Finishes Custom textures and surface designs can be achieved using a variety of methods, most frequently beginning with the creation of a tool or pattern that is then used to cast custom polyurethane molds or by developing a custom mask that is used in the media blast finishing process. TAKTL’s in-house design team works collaboratively to find solutions that leverage our in-house technologies and expertise to achieve the design intent in the most cost effective and efficient way possible.

Our Materials Lab is equipped to develop custom low-profile textures (<1″ in addition to base panel thickness) and surface designs for material orders in excess of 10,000 square feet. Pricing for development and samples will be determined by project. Sample size is limited by the capacity of the smaller scale production environment of our lab (12” x 24” maximum), and development usually requires 12 to 14 weeks, plus additional time for in-house performance testing. Certified laboratory testing, if required, is an additional charge.

Please contact our Technical Sales Team to discuss custom texture design objectives, applications and sampling.

Mediablast Finish Available as a standard finishing option with Titanium, Platinum, White, Bone, Dune, and Natural colors and any texture, mediablasting creates a subtly lighter and more visually varied surface of exposed aggregate. Our mediablaster was custom designed for UHPC finishing with automated articulating heads and a vertical panel orientation to create an even surface texture that is not achievable with fixed head blasting.
