What are the Benefits of 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

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.

Recyclable

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

RAL colour powder-coated finishes

VulcaLap® RAL colour powder-coated finishes achieve Reaction to fire classification: EN 13501.1-A2-s1,d0 in a wide range of colours, gloss levels and textures. Our extensive range of high quality powders gives you limitless design opportunity.

We have tested RAL finishes to meet the requirements for ISO 12944-6:2018, which gives a life expectancy until major maintenance of more than 25 years in a corrosivity category C4 environment: seafront, cyclic salt spray, UV, freezing and chlorine. You can also apply for 10-year project specific manufacturer warranty.

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

Wood Effect Finishes

WOOD finishes powder coated

VulcaLap® is available in 11 attractive WOOD finishes which achieve Reaction to fire classification: EN 13501.1-A2-s1,d0 – further finishes will be available soon. Each finish has a subtle variation during production which adds to the authenticity.

Vulcan WOOD finishes meet the requirements for ISO 12944-6:2018, which gives a life expectancy until major maintenance of more than 25 years in a corrosivity category C4 environment: seafront, cyclic salt spray, UV, freezing and chlorine. WOOD finishes have also undergone testing in Florida with a 10-year manufacturer warranty.

WOOD finishes are an ideal choice for those seeking to capture the warmth and character of real timber, but without the maintenance and colour change to exposed areas. Timber is a popular feature that gives a softening effect in modern architecture.

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 non-combustible.

Anodised finishes meet the requirements for ISO 12944-6:2018, which gives a life expectancy until major maintenance of more than 25 years in a corrosivity category C4 environment: seafront, cyclic salt spray, UV, freezing and chlorine.

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 property owners.

Anodised Cladding

Stone Finishes

Our stone effect collection offers enhanced aesthetic finishes that provide a great alternative to concrete, Portland stone, limestone and brickwork.

Stone is a key feature of architectural design. It stands for combining stunning aesthetics with a promise of long-lasting architectural legacy.

These special effect powder coatings demonstrate exceptional variations in colour and patination, which imitates the appearance and textures of natural stone.

Stone finishes are subject to minimum orders quantities; please contact our sales team for further details.
