The aluminum cladding system is one of the most prominent and widely used. Its popularity comes from its lightweight nature but also because it is easy to install and maintain. An aluminum cladding system should be chosen based on your building’s needs and budget.
If you have chosen to go with aluminum cladding systems on your commercial or residential properties, then it is important to choose the right type of roofing system that suits your needs best. There are many options available for choosing the right kind of roofing system for each building project.
Here are some different types of aluminium cladding systems that you can use:
The simplest and least expensive, single skin systems are also the most common. They’re used for low-rise residential buildings, commercial buildings, and many other applications.
They consist of a single layer of cladding fastened to an underlying wall structure through nails or other fasteners. The result is an attractive finish that’s both durable and easy to install.
Insulated cladding systems are used to increase the thermal performance of buildings. This can be achieved by using two sheets of aluminum and a layer of insulation. The sandwich is held with clips or screws at regular intervals along its length, creating a seal that prevents rainwater from entering behind it.
Insulated cladding systems are suitable for use with both free-standing walls or roofing applications, as they will attach directly to the structure via screws or clips. They are ideal for large glazing areas where heat loss can occur due to convection currents within glass panels and their frames – this system ensures that heat isn’t lost through these areas, so it reduces energy consumption significantly!
Composite panel cladding is a type of cladding system that is made up of a combination of two materials. This combination is called the composite panel, and it’s usually made from aluminum and another material such as cement or plastic. The backing material can be applied directly to your home’s exterior wall, but it can also be installed over an existing surface like plywood.
Roofing systems are designed to be installed over a single skin system and are ideal for all flat roofs and low slope roofs, as well as pitched roofs. If you have a commercial or residential property with a flat roof, then choosing the right cladding system is essential. The right choice will mean that your property has integrity in terms of its design, structure, and longevity.
External and internal cladding can be made from aluminum, steel, or other materials. These systems are used to cover the outside as well as the inside of buildings.
External cladding is installed on an outside wall using traditional methods such as bricklaying and plastering. Internal cladding may also be installed in this way, but it’s more commonly applied with aluminium composite panels (ACP). The ACP sheets are typically glued to an existing wall surface and then fixed into place using stainless steel screws.
We hope that you have found this article useful. As we said earlier, there are many different types of aluminium cladding systems available. You should now know some of the most common ones and be able to decide which is best for your project.
