Cladding is the application of one material over another to provide a skin or layer. In construction cladding is used to provide a degree of thermal insulation and weather resistance, and to improve the appearance of buildings
Whether as a beautiful, long lasting exterior facade or as feature walling on the inside, it creates depth and texture. It can be attached directly to the frame or to an intermediate layer of battens or spacers to prevent condensation and allow water vapour to escape.
Cladding systems include horizontal or vertical boards, sheet materials or smaller overlapping panels such as shingles and tiles. Each system uses different methods to prevent wind and rain entering through the joints, and each system’s effectiveness varies depending on wind direction and speed and the degree of exposure to rain.
Available in 22 attractive colours inspired by the colours of Australia, COLORBOND® steel wall cladding also delivers a lot of practical benefits. It is easy to maintain, long lasting, lightweight and extremely durable; resisting chipping, flaking and blistering.
