Metal cladding is used in various commercial architecture scenarios – building facades and column covering being two of the most common uses. Aluminium is one of the most popular choices for this purpose because it's durable, light weight, recyclable, hygienic and low maintenance.
Aluminium Composite Cladding UK
ACM is a popular choice due to its ease of fabrication and flexible nature. It is impervious to insects such as termites and improves energy efficiency when installed with proper insulation. ACM cladding is achieved when 2 faces of aluminium measuring 0.5mm are bonded together. It's an excellent choice for projects that require contemporary design concepts within a reasonable budget. Aluminium Composite Material cladding systems can be tailored to meet any project's requirements due to unlimited color and finish possibilities. Metallic finish, Corten finish, zinc finish, aluminium oxide finish, wood effects, stainless steel composite effect and mirror finish are some of the exceptional range of contemporary surface effects possible with the use of ACM cladding systems.
Creative architects combine ACM cladding with materials such as timber, cement and stone to create unique architectural masterpieces.
Corten Cladding Systems
Corten steel cladding systems are a popular choice for exteriors as they provide a warm rustic appearance. This is due to the addition of certain alloys which help in the development of a red oxide layer on exposed surfaces which prevents the underlying metal surface from corroding. It is constantly regenerating and delivers some key benefits in maintenance and installation. Apart from excellent weathering properties, Corten cladding systems provide the benefits of low solar reflectivity, options for painting, sealing and high structural strength.
Manufacture of Cladding Systems
Some firms such as NES Solutions have their own manufacturing facility with AXYZ router and CNC rollers for quick delivery of large scale projects. They also offer bespoke solutions for style and finish requirements of large scale architecture projects. Apart from their expertise in fabricating aluminium claddings systems, they also work with other metals including copper, bronze, and zinc and have the capability to produce single sheets of up to 8 metres.
Column cladding is extensively used to provide an aesthetic and cost effective solution to hide various structural and non structural elements such as electrical and mechanical elements that may otherwise mar the appearance of commercial spaces. They can also be used as exciting, decorative architectural features. Manufacturers offer aluminium cladding panels for column casings to both old and new buildings and provide bespoke shapes and configurations to suit the design and budgetary requirements of their clients.
Materials such as aluminium and stainless steel offer greater design flexibility and can be used for internal and external applications. Single, circular column casings measuring up to 8 metres can be fabricated using the services of quality machines and skilled technicians. During the manufacturing process, CNC press brakes or rolling machines are employed to bend the metal sheets into the desired shape and profile. Stainless steel column claddings are available in a wide range of polishes, textures and finishes with or without oxide tints.
