Cladding Design Overview
Cladding is the application of one material over another to offer a protective skin or layer to the outside of a structure. In building and construction, cladding is utilized to provide a degree of thermal insulation and weather resistance and to enhance the look of buildings.
Cladding can be made from any of a vast array of materials including wood, metal, brick, vinyl, and composite products that can consist of aluminium, wood, blends of cement and recycled polystyrene, wheat/rice straw fibres. Cladding material choice can contribute to a structure’s durability, thermal insulation, and, most importantly, its susceptibility to fire. In special cases, cladding can become a fire hazard if poorly designed, installed, or composed of combustible materials. That is why hiring an expert is essential.
Single-Layer Wall Cladding
Single-layer metal panels are pre-formed wall panels made from metal that are among the most commonly offered types of cladding for commercial and business projects. Their high sturdiness and easy installation make them perfect for low upkeep structures.
Reasons for Cladding
Rainscreen cladding is a type of weather condition cladding designed to protect against the elements; however, it also offers thermal insulation. Some cladding does not always need to be fully water-resistant; sometimes, it is merely a control aspect. At times it may serve only to direct water or wind safely away in order to manage run-off and avoid its infiltration into the building structure.
Cladding for Noise Insulation & Soundproofing
Specific cladding can also be used to provide soundproofing, in both inward and outward directions. Noise insulation is a fantastic benefit of cladding, especially for office or home environments where silence is desirable. Cladding applied to windows is often referred to as window capping and is a specific field.
Cladding Fire-Hazards and Considerations
In between the cladding and the wall, there is a cavity in which rainwater run-off can descend. In the unfortunate case of a fire, this cavity has the potential to draw hot air up like a chimney, intensify the fire, and spread it to the top of the cladding. The fire may then enter the building through open windows, for example, by jumping onto drapes blowing outside.
In the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire in London, and comparable fires in France, Dubai, and elsewhere, considerable attention has been paid to the fire protection standards of cladding used in tower-blocks and similar high-rise multiple-occupancy real estate. Grenfell Tower was clad with composite panels with a polythene core which is thought to have contributed to the fire. These panels cost marginally less than ones with an incombustible core. There are approximated to be about 600 high-rise blocks of flats in the UK that have “similar” cladding which may present the same types of fire hazards discussed above.
Core materials may be polythene (which is flammable), a mineral-based product, or a combination of both. Panels of the very same appearance might have different core materials; those with a higher proportion of mineral core endure fire much better, but can still be considered to be combustible. The cladding is likely to propagate fire if the core is combustible. Due to fire concerns, it is always important to hire a professional team such as ours when you wish to install cladding on a structure.
What are the various kinds of cladding?
What are the different kinds of cladding? The most common types of cladding are Stone Cladding, Brick Cladding, UPVC Cladding, Timber Cladding, Metal Cladding, Concrete Cladding, Weatherboard Cladding, and Glass Cladding.
What is the best exterior cladding?
Metal cladding is another option for the outside siding of your home that is both low-cost and durable for minimal upkeep and long service life. Common metal siding types include galvanized steel, aluminium, copper, and zinc. Similar to composite, metal cladding is available in a variety of different architectural designs and surfaces.
