Why Choose Aluminium Cladding?

Lightweight

Renowned for it’s lightweight properties, aluminium is about a third of the weight of steel, which makes it easier and cheaper to transport and install than most other metals.

Weathering

Aluminium is very resistant to corrosion. Corrosion does not affect aluminium due to it’s protective oxide coating. Unlike copper, weather conditions don’t influence aluminium.

Sustainability

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable with no loss of quality. More than 55% of the world’s primary aluminium is produced using hydroelectric power (no CO2 emissions and renewable).

Applications

  • High-Rise Buildings over 18m

    The installation of VulcaLap is simple and efficient. VulcaLap should be cut with fine-toothed metalworking tools and fixed to timber or metal battening. All plank cuts and fixing are hidden which allows for a modern flush effect. The robust extrusion allows planks to be 'solo-fixed' up to 5m long.

    Furthermore, all coatings are backed by a 10-year warranty to give you peace of mind, along with a durable exterior.

    View our RAL Colour Chart for standard colours. We recommend a smooth matt finish for most exterior applications.

    Anodised Silver & Bronze Finishes

    Anodising is an electrochemical process which enhances the natural weathering resistance, as well as giving a much more consistent, aesthetic finish.
    Anodised finishes are A1 Fire Rated.

    The anodised process does not add anything to the metal, meaning that it remains 100% recyclable and 100% pure aluminium.

    As the need for improved product durability, sustainability and aesthetics increases, anodised aluminium is becoming an increasingly popular choice for aluminium cladding.

    Wood Effect Finishes

    WOOD Finishes

    Our VulcaLap system is available in 11 different attractive WOOD finishes.

    These WOOD finishes are an ideal choice for those seeking to capture the warmth and character of real timber, but with the maintenance and colour change.

    All of our WOOD finishes have undergone testing in the Sunshine State of Florida and are backed by a 10-year warranty.
    VulcaLap WOOD is A2 Fire Rated.
