The two principle types of facade cladding are Panel Cladding and Aluminium Composite Panels. And One of our most popular cladding solutions is the Hunter Douglas 150F and 200F Facade systems – see below.
Panel Cladding is a lightweight, enamelled finish and water-tight interlocking system. The panel components are the 150 and 200mm wide interlocking panels which are supported on stringers. Together with various corners, joints and accessories, the 150 and 200F Systems can form closed facades, fascias and soffits in a wide range of colours.
Aluminium Composite Panels
Composite Panels are lightweight, rigid and versatile. They will add a low maintenance, UV stable and waterproof finish to any building.
Cladding of circular columns, steel and concrete structures is made easy as the panels can be cut, rolled, perforated, folded, punched and drilled.
Composite panels consist of two sheets of aluminium bonded to a fire retardant core. The panel is available in a wide range of standard metallic and non-metallic PVDF paint finishes. All Pantone colours can be matched in a variety of panel sizes to suit specific contract requirements (subject to a minimum order quantity.)
