There are various types of metal that can be used in cladding. Aluminum cladding is very popular because it is a quality solution that is also sustainable when building a facade that has to last for a long time. Aluminum is among the most used metals in the world, Aluminum metals offer unique their own unique benefits to buildings and construction.
ALUMINUM CLADDING ADVANTAGES
Aluminum cladding offers great benefits compared to other metals. When designing the facade of your building it’s important to take these benefits into consideration.
ALUMINUM IS A VERY LIGHT WEIGHT METAL
Aluminum weighs in at about the third of the weight of steel. On average it weighs around 2,7g/cm3. This is a big reason many architects consider using aluminum when cladding. The process of installing the aluminum panels, aluminum louvers or aluminum facade systems will be much easier due to the weight.
ALUMINUM IS VERY RESISTANT TO CORROSION
Corrosion does not affect aluminum due to its protective oxide coating. Unlike copper, the weather conditions don’t influence aluminum. It won’t rust and corrode over time. This makes aluminum a great material to built with, aluminum will last for several decades!
ALUMINUM IS FLEXIBLE
Aluminum is one of the easiest metals to melt and bent. The melting point of aluminum is very low making it easy to shape. Because it is also flexible, aluminum is used widely by architects for special designs that require curved or uncommon shapes.
ALUMINUM IS COMPLETELY RECYCLABLE
If you choose aluminum cladding you choose sustainability. Aluminum is recyclable and won’t lose any of its quality in the process. Aluminum is remelted all the time and the process takes little energy.
