Façade Cladding – More than meets the eye

The aesthetic appeal and individuality of a building is determined by a unique façade which has the ability to translate design intent into striking reality. Few construction methods achieve this better than façade cladding.

Apart from the obvious aesthetic advantages, cladding offers excellent functional benefits such as reduced maintenance and protection against the elements. Extruded aluminium cladding, for instance, provides durability and long-lasting resilience, protecting the structure from external weather elements, while requiring almost no maintenance. Façade cladding panels shield the internal building materials and increases the mechanical stability of the structure. The cladding protects from changes in temperature, wind, water absorption, sunlight and pollution – all of which can damage the structural integrity of a building and its aesthetics.

As leaders in Façade Cladding, Alania’s versatile Aluminium Façade Cladding Systems provide cladding solutions for both new construction and older buildings requiring a fresh look. Variety and flexibility are a given as they offer a wide range of materials, panel shapes and sizes and leverage their ability to customise allowing for a multitude of cladding options.

Alania’s Aluminium Cladding Panels are extremely rigid and flat while still lightweight, are weather resistant and will outlast most paint applications. Aluminium Composite has high thermal and fire rated values that can be altered to accommodate client requirements with impressive formability to be rolled or fabricated to complex designs.
