Though there are a variety of metal types that are applicable for use as cladding materials, aluminum is the most popular thanks to a number of advantages:
Aluminum is easy to reshape into curved or irregular shaped profiles due to its extraordinary low melting point and flexibility.
2. Light weight
One of the reasons that architects are using aluminum as cladding material is due to the fact that aluminum is only a third the weight of steel, making it easier to install cladding parts, such as aluminum panels, aluminum louvers, aluminum facade systems and more.
3. Corrosion resistance
Aluminum does not rust or corrode over time due to its protective oxide coating, aluminum claddings will last for decades in most circumstances.
Aluminum is recyclable and won’t lose any quality over time. Aluminum cladding is environmentally friendly, and one of the top ranked cladding materials.
