Cladding entails the development attached to a building's structure to form non-structural exterior surfaces.
Fremont, CA: Cladding systems perform critical functions in buildings. They can provide thermal insulation, safeguard internal spaces from the elements, and, perhaps most importantly, give the building a "face," enhancing its appearance and properly identifying the design element. In addition, cladding entails the development attached to a building's structure to form non-structural exterior surfaces. While wooden cladding was once the only option, there are now numerous materials, colors, weights, textures, anchoring systems, and other variables. The following are some of the most common materials used for façade cladding, as well as projects that make excellent use of them:
ACM (Aluminum Composite Material)
ACM is an abbreviation for "Aluminum composite material," a category of high-strength coating made up of a three-layer panel with two pre-painted aluminum plates linked to a polyethylene core (PE). ACM panels are used in interiors and exteriors because they have good dimensional stability, are lightweight, and have an elegant appearance that can get customized with many colors and textures.
The burning of clay results in the formation of ceramics. Most modern processes include several other ingredients, resulting in extremely strong products that can take on any shape.
Grespania's Coverlam products include a 0.5 mm fiberglass mesh that allows the fabrication of pieces up to 1000 x 3000 mm, which can then get installed on ventilated façade metal mounts.
Natural stone façades such as slate, with shades ranging from dark grey to black, add sobriety and complexity to any façade. Furthermore, for ventilated façades, the material improves thermal comfort and ease of installation. The slate is resistant to extreme temperatures, snow accumulation, and fire and is completely waterproof. Furthermore, because it is 100 percent natural, it has a lower environmental impact, and each piece gets handcrafted without the use of chemicals or other treatments.
Anodizing is the process of "forming an oxide film on certain metals by immersing them in an electrolytic bath in which the metal to be anodized is attached to the positive pole of an electricity source, thereby becoming the anode of the electrolytic cuba." Kiskadedecor develops highly personalized designs, including space dividers, wall recovery, ceilings, façades, lighting elements, and any other special structure users can think of using anodized aluminum links. In addition, they can reproduce images & patterns in various bright and satin color finishes thanks to internal technology.
