Quality cladding materials

Every project is different. Material selection dramatically influences the overall look and feel of an architectural facade. Product specification is integral to facade success. In addition to aesthetics, material choice also impacts cladding performance, durability and maintenance requirements.

At Metal Cladding Systems we partner only with the best material suppliers; ensuring we manufacture our roof and wall systems from authentic and trusted metals.

We are proud members of BlueScope Steel’s® supply partnership program, STEEL BY™. To learn more about this prestigious program, visit BlueScope Steel’s® website. In addition to BlueScope COLORBOND®, we manufacture in a range of other alloys such as aluminium, copper and zinc.

Material selection

One of the greatest advantages of sheet metal cladding is the abundance and variety of quality materials.

Selecting the most suitable type of metal for your project should be an exciting process. Aesthetic preference will often guide in the beginning, then it’s important to consider details such as material performance, to determine project suitability.

To assist, we have noted some points to consider.

Request samples

Determine maintenance requirements. On a whole, sheet metal cladding is low maintenance, however material cleaning schedules will differ depending on location (atmospheric conditions), foot traffic, and surrounding material specifications.

Consider project location and atmospheric conditions. Some materials such as coated steel, or pre-painted aluminium better withstand salt laden air and/or harsh industrial pollutants.

Confirm facade budget. Price can vary significantly from one metal to another.

Determine material durability requirements by assessing the intended application. For example, high traffic areas are better suited to alloys where bumps and scratches will be less noticeable, such as galvanised steel and natural copper.

Ensure when specifying branded product you’re collaborating with legitimate suppliers. Do your research and get the real deal.

Understand recycling options and analyse material lifespan against expected building lifespan.
