What are the different ways of doing facades ?

Along with the roof, facades are one of the most important sections of a building, as it acts as the primary barrier to external elements such as sun and rain that could damage the building structure. Facades have a significant impact on the appearance of a building as they are the first thing we notice about a building when it is constructed.

The question of what can be done for a facade is a difficult one. If you think about the variety of surfaces, materials, and scales all of these are more than enough to confuse even the most informed individual, no doubt. However, if you know exactly what it is that you need then there will not be so many decisions to make. This blog intends to address just such issues: What are The Different Ways of Doing Facades?

There are many options when it comes to designing a wall facade. You can use aluminum composite panels, louvers, or parklex, just to name a few.

What is Facade Cladding?


Before we start, we want to introduce you to Cladding, one popular type of doing facades. Cladding is made up of panels that are attached to the building’s frame. This type of facade is often used for commercial buildings, as it can be easily customized to match the company’s branding. Cladding is a popular choice because it’s affordable and can be installed in no time.

In facade cladding systems, a ventilated chamber is created between the cladding and the insulation, thereby eliminating thermal bridging and condensation problems. This system provides outstanding thermal performance and decreases humidity. As such, it is regarded as the most effective system for solving the building’s insulation problems and is widely accepted by architects, developers, and builders.

In the chamber, this constant ventilation is generated by the so-called stack effect, whereby heated air in the buffer space warms up relatively to the ambient temperature leading to greater comfort inside the building. The result is a constant discharge of water vapor from within and outside the building, which keeps the insulation dry and ensures better performance, along with big energy savings.

Besides reducing energy consumption and increasing user comfort, the system achieves basic sanitary requirements in terms of hygiene, ensuring a healthy living environment.

Last but not least, the cladding system is recommended due to its technical durability. In fact, the cladding system prevents direct radiation and bad weather from damaging the building’s walls and structure, thus protecting from the development of damages that affect buildings constructed with traditional systems.

What are different ways of Cladding?


There are 3 major types of Wall Cladding.

Aluminum Composite Panel (add images)

Composite aluminum panels are the most popular in the construction industry. ACP sheeting is a very popular surfacing material, with tons of potential applications. It consists of double aluminum cover sheets on the top and bottom, with a mineral-filled polymer core sandwiched in between. This makes it a very strong and durable material that is perfect for many different uses.

ACP Panels are lightweight and durable. They are the perfect way to achieve a crisp, clean look for your space. With an endless variety of shapes and sizes, you can find the perfect fit for your needs. Aluminum panels deliver a premium look that is sure to impress.

Composite panels are significantly superior to paints due to their several benefits. They are a great way to add style and function to your home or office. They can be used for surface cladding, interior walls, ceilings, and more. Aluminum composite panels are a great option if you want a sleek and modern look. They’re also weather-resistant, cost-effective, and energy-efficient.
