Stainless Steel Wall Cladding
With wall cladding we can use different types of metal, one of the best metals to use is stainless steel. Stainless steel wall cladding in particular is a very sustainable solution for the facade of any building. Wall cladding can be produced in different materials like zinc, copper, aluminium and titanium, each metal has it’s own advantages.
Why stainless steel wall cladding?
Stainless steel is a great material for the exterior facade of buildings because of its glossy polished finish. Stainless steel also has aesthetic abilities. Stainless steel wall cladding is often used to decorate the exterior of large office buildings or hotels. Stainless steel is easy to use the material and is very easy to install on any facade. Stainless steel wall cladding is often used because of its durability. This is much more durable than for example copper (the color of copper changes over time). Stainless steel has a very high tolerance for corrosion because of its self-healing qualities. When stainless steel is scratched the metal will recover because of chromo oxide. When combined with oxygen this layer protects the steel and makes the material look smooth and polished again. Stainless steel is also environmentally friendly because it’s completely recyclable. Most of the stainless steel in production today is fabricated with recycled parts of stainless steel.
