KeraShape is a collection of glazed and unglazed stoneware – ceramic tubular “baguettes,” which offers a wide array of choices that can integrate three-dimensional screening elements into a facade design. 

Ceramic baguettes are hollow, long-format ceramic materials secured using special holders. If needed for specific requirements such as fall protection, baguettes can be fortified onto an aluminium tube and using object-related holders, attached to the structure.
