Searching for an effective way to cover the outside walls of your building? Facade cladding is the perfect solution!
How Facade Cladding Works? It is a fixed, non-load bearing panel that supports a building structure. It supports its own weight and is used for its aesthetic properties to conceal any finishing imperfections.
Some contains thermal and acoustic insulation properties when combined with an installed insulation. It can be installed upon steel, timber, or cement support structures.
Types of Facade Cladding: Types range from Rainscreen, Vinyl cladding, Timber cladding, Stone cladding, Aluminium panels, Steel panels, to Cement based panels.
Cladding Maintenance: Some will require regular refinishing while others simply need a scheduled hosing down.
Cladding Design: For traditional settings, timber, stone, and vinyl cladding looks best. For a timeless look, stone is recommended. For a modern setup, metal or cement panels are ideal. Metal cladding is also a good fit for curved surfaces.
Ceramic Facade Cladding: Architectural cladding systems assist in the installation of ceramic materials and enhance the walls' thermo-hygrometric qualities. Ceramic tiles come in various sizes, colours, and textures and are suitable for both exposed and concealed mechanical anchoring. With larger tiles, designers can create large vertical, sloping, or curved surfaces.
Ventilated Facades: Ventilated facades are dry-mounted cladding systems bound to the building by means of mechanical suspension and anchoring tools. This requires an appropriately-sized cavity to insert a thermal insulation panel in contact with the building wall and a chamber for upward air circulation. It protects the building and its wall structure against weather agents and pollutants. It also ensures thermal and sound insulation with energy saving capabilities. It removes thermal bridges and improves visual interface.
When choosing your facade cladding, economical options should be considered. For example, a stone or timber cladding looks great but if you are on a tight budget, vinyl cladding can be an alternative at a cheaper cost.
