The Importance of Effective Wall Cladding

What is Wall Cladding?

Wall cladding is a great way to protect a building from adverse weather elements, as well as other types of irritants that could have a negative effect on the building.

Wall cladding is the process of layering one material on top of another material which will create a skin layer over the walls. Cladding is almost exclusively used as a control feature, preventing the walls and the internal workings of a room or building being damaged by water or allowing the leakage of water that could potentially become a hazard for people who are walking around inside of the structure.

Depending on the task at hand, different types of materials can be used, such as wood, brick, metal plastic or imitation stone. Metal cladding is usually in the form of galvanized steel or aluminium.

Advantages of Exterior Cladding

The main advantage of using an exterior wall cladding is to protect a building form external damage while needing little to no maintenance. Once the wall cladding is in place, it will not need to be regularly checked or serviced like other weather protection measures have to be, costing time and money.

If you have external cladding, if you care about aesthetics, it can be quickly washed down with water and it will look as good as new. One of the most common materials used is aluminium, as it is very durable and versatile, as well as lasting long into the future.

One of the key purposes is for the protection and safety of the building and its occupants. It will make sure that the mechanical structure of the building remains sound, as it will be able to adapt to changing weather conditions. This is especially helpful in regions that go from one extreme temperature at one time of the year, to an extreme temperature during the other time of the year.  It will also help to reduce the amount of water that is absorbed and will provide protection against chemical or air pollution.

When it comes to Danpal and wall cladding, they are one of the leading providers in the industry. We have already talked about the important protective features that wall cladding provides, but with Danpal’s special system, it will also save you money in the long run, as the Danpal VRS is a system that provides great insulation for the room and building that it is protecting.

Proper insulation in a building is vital, as it will ensure that temperatures internally are at an optimum level without having to change settings on specialized units, such as air conditioning and central heating.

The Danpal VRS also allows for natural ventilation of the building thanks to a special air gap, while still ensuring that the insulation remains dry and efficient over time.

It is even more lightweight than your traditional wall cladding thanks to the connector-bound Microcell polycarbonate panels, meaning that it is simple and easy to install.
