Wall cladding means that the exterior of a building is covered with panels of a different material than the cover-up. To maintain the structure, frame and exterior walls of a building, certain panel systems are applied. The panels are installed over other materials used in construction. These systems are also called cladding systems and are a part of the composite of the particular building. Different cladding systems will be used for different buildings or projects. Any architectural challenge can be solved with a fitting cladding system solution.
Various types of Cladding Systems
There are multiple types of cladding and cladding systems. It is quite difficult to distinguish them from one another, as there are many different materials that can be used for cladding systems. Installation of cladding systems can also be done using various methods. Materials used in cladding systems can be all sorts of metals (zinc, stainless steel, bronze, copper, etc.) to rubber, silicone or brick. The installation methods are adapted to the different kinds of materials being utilized for the construction of the cladding system.
The function of Cladding Systems
Cladding is primarily adapted in construction for its function: (wall) cladding systems protect the exterior and the frame of the building. Indirectly, cladding systems protect the interior of an architectural construction as well. Besides the protection a cladding system has to offer, it can also increase the aesthetic appeal of a building or construction. With the many materials, patterns, and finishes you can choose from, cladding systems have become very appealing to architects. Architects often add these panels to their design to achieve a modern, minimalistic look.
