Architects have used timber as a practical and stylish cladding material for many years. Cladding provides great looks and also protection from the elements. While natural timber is great for high wind areas, thanks to its flexibility, it can corrode significantly without regular maintenance, often at high cost. Today, there is a hardwearing, low maintenance alternative, with several key benefits – Composite timber cladding.
Composite Timber Claddings are available in various standard and custom profiles to suit your needs. Profiles are available in solid or hollow sections according to specification. Cladding Boards can be fitted both horizontally and vertically.
Composite Timber Cladding is ideal for offices, public buildings, theme parks, hotels, commercial properties and residential homes. Custom profiles incorporating alternative fixing systems are available and made according to requirements. Composite Cladding is available in many colors and generally any color is possible for bulk orders.
What is it?
Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) Cladding is made from recycled polyethylene polymers and cultivated hardwoods. The result is a composite timber with a natural look that can withstand heat, cold, and general weathering far better than natural timber. Composite timbers are UV stable, environment friendly, color adaptive, and have a 50+ years lifespan. It does not need oiling or staining like natural timber, making it the best choice for new or replacement cladding projects. It’s a money-saver and as well as time-saver.
Some Composite Claddings are specially designed to allow additional insulation to be inserted behind or within it quickly and easily, improving the energy efficiency of the home or building. With the rising costs of energy, as well as a societal shift towards environmentally sustainable building practices, this is a valuable feature.
Engineered to ensure quality and perfection, composite cladding is available in a variety of finishes and colours. Colours range from timber-look styles for a natural appearance, through to bespoke designs for a truly unique result. Textures can be customised as well, from smooth or sanded, through to reeded or a wood grain look.
Profiles are designed to hide fixings with interlocking sections, giving a clean and sleek look. Some profile examples are box, flush and weatherboard. Standard sizes typically range from 150mm x 21mm, up to 250mm x 21mm, although for large orders, custom sizes and profile of any kind are available.
which will stand up to the heat, cold, humidity and rain – factors which corrode natural timber in no time.
Composite Timber Cladding is the low maintenance, long lasting, attractive addition to any building.
