Cladding is a ‘layer’ or ‘skin’ of material that is applied to a building to provide additional protection or coverage. The material acts as a protective coating over the surface of a structure, such as a roof or an exterior wall, to safeguard it from environmental factors.
Help your property live longer
Whether your project is a small or large development, adding steel cladding can help to improve the lifespan of your building.
Steel cladding in particular has a robust surface which is far more durable than alternative options. The material requires little maintenance due to its ability to endure a variety of external factors such as water damage, corrosion and fire, and will sustain itself for years without the need for repair or renovation.
Due to its resistance to adverse conditions, steel increases the mechanical stability of the building as a whole and shields it from influences that would usually compromise its structural integrity.
Keep the sound out and the heat in
Steel cladding has the potential to enhance the thermal and acoustic performance of a building. It contributes to an increase in a building’s energy efficiency by reducing heat loss in the winter and managing heat gain in the summer. This type of cladding equally provides greater acoustic insulation by reducing noise levels coming in from the outside world.
A striking and aesthetic choice
A steel cladding design can provide a distinctive look to your building. It offers a modern solution that complements various architectural styles and produces a captivating and modern-industrial look.
This material provides projects with an array of creative choices that would be impossible to consider using other traditional construction material options.
A sustainable solution for your property
Although there are a variety of materials that may be used for cladding, steel is undoubtedly the most practical and sustainable option.
Steel cladding is an environmentally friendly choice as it is the only material that is 100% recyclable and reusable for construction purposes.
When steel cladding is used for a project, the materials can be preserved and repurposed after they exceed their original use. This choice enables your business to contribute to the fight against climate change and ensure your building is as environmentally friendly as possible.
