If you’re getting a building refurbished the phrases and jargon can be overwhelming, you want to know where your money’s going, to cut through the confusion we’ll help you navigate the waters of metal cladding so you know exactly what you’re paying for.

What Is Metal Cladding?

Cladding is the process of bringing 2 types of metal together in order to create a new sheet of metal that is extra strong and extra durable for the exterior of a building. Cladding is popular both because it protects the outside structure of a building and improves the aesthetic and unlike other forms of cladding, metal can also be used for roofing. There are a variety of types available for different purposes:

Profiled Cladding

Profiled cladding is widely used for industrial buildings; it uses steel and aluminium and is most commonly used for roofs and walls that require insulation. Profiled cladding makes for greater thermal movement, is impervious to water and is resistant against corrosion, profiled cladding lasts for years so your building is well protected.

Cassette Panel Cladding

Cassette panel cladding is made up of multiple sheets of flat metal that are pressed or folded together to make them strong and stiff, they are usually used to protect rectangular walls with formed edges.

Types Of Metals Used

Steel and aluminium are the most common forms of metal used because they are lightweight and relatively inexpensive compared to other metals whilst still being strong.
