Wall cladding is a type of decorative covering intended to make a wall look like it is made of a different sort of material than it actually is. Some of the most common examples are on the outside of buildings, but cladding can also be an artistic element in interior decorating. It’s usually non-structural, which means that it doesn’t impact the stability or integrity of a building’s architectural core. In most cases it’s designed to be permanent, and it may provide benefits like insulation and waterproofing. It can be made out of almost anything, but various metals, stones, and aluminium composite materials are the most common.
Cladding is almost always intended to be stylistic rather than functional and is usually designed to help accent a particular feature or room. Though it could conceivably cover every surface in a house or building, it’s more common to find it in just one or two key areas. A single bathroom wall might be covered in wood paneling, for instance, which could give the illusion of depth and warmth, or a single corner or side of a office building might be layered with intricate stone work. The idea is usually to add interest and vibrancy without the expense of actually re-building a wall or partition. As such, the various materials and textures are usually affixed to the top of an existing structure.
Types of Cladding Wall
The composite aluminum material currently used in building construction actually has its origins in the aerospace industry. It has specifically developed to offer superior strength in a lightweight sheet product.
Aluminium Composite Panels consists of a thermoplastic polyethylene core that is sandwiched between to outer flat Aluminium panels. The polyethylene core is bonded between the two aluminium sheets providing a very lightweight, flat, smooth and strong rigid sheet, bendable and durable aluminium faced composite panel well acknowledged as an interior and exterior wall..
The Aluminium Composite Sheets can be coated with a number of coatings from PVDF or Polyester paint depending on the customer requirement or process. Aluminium composites can also be produced in a wide range of colours including metallic’s and patterns that resemble woods and marbles.
PVDF and Polyester Aluminium Composites can be found in a range of applications from building claddings to Signage as a replacement to heavier and expensive substrates.
Feature of the Aluminium Composite Panel
- Lightweight and Rigid Construction
- Excellent Resistance against weather:
- Outstanding Flatness:
- Best performance, Strong composition, Durable life
- Colour Uniformity
- Easily and Quickly Installable
- Improved fire resistance
- Maintenance free
Cladding Panel consists of two aluminium or other natural metal cover sheets, enclosing a polyethylene or fire rated core. This simple concept gives it a wide variety of advantages for both Architects and Installers. It is stable, yet readily mouldable, extremely weather resistant, and very easy to install.

Curtain Wall Systems can be used where the design of a building requires the glazing span two or more floors of a façade to create the impression of a continuous wall of glass. This can be done both vertically and horizontally on the outside of the structure thereby maximizing the internal floor area.
With the use of high-performing, sound-reducing, tinted or reflective glass and concealed structurally glazed mullions, the appearance of the façade can be created to express horizontal or vertical lines. In many cases, the Curtain Wall System can be used to over clad existing buildings, giving them a totally new lease on life with a modern appearance.
The adaptability of the Curtain Wall System allows for various design concepts and uses. For instance, the North Shore Hospital Café uses Curtain Wall Screening.
Curtain Wall Systems offer a choice of stickform and unitised methods of manufacture and installation. Each system is unique and offers the building designer flexibility in design and appearance in keeping with current environment issues such as thermal efficiency, ventilation and natural light.
Features of the Curtain Wall
One major advantage of aluminium curtain walls is that it allows filtration of natural light into the building. Additionally, it prevents air and moisture from entering into the structure. They can also act as a fire stop, preventing the spread of fire from floor to floor of the building structure. The walls help in the transfer of horizontal wind loads that are incidental upon it to the main building structure through the connections at floors of the building. It is also designed to being air resistant and allowing water infiltration, sway induction by wind and forces acting against the building.
