The aluminium composite panels used in the cladding of building facades have properties, characteristics and advantages that make it possible to create unique combinations of architectural designs. Aluminum facades have perfectly proven themselves in practice when decorating and facing house facades. Today, aluminum facades are actively used in the construction of almost all types of buildings and structures.
Aluminium composite panel cladding not only creates an effect of lightness, this material is strong, reliable and durable. Regardless of which facade cladding system is chosen, the facade is transformed beyond recognition. Many architects find a solution to their ideas precisely thanks to aluminum facade systems. The variety of colors and shapes makes it possible to transform faceless structure to building with an individual architectural solution.
Facade cladding with aluminum composite panels is a ventilated facade system. Aluminium composite panel installation is quite simple, provided that all the necessary parts and elements are available. The installation principle consists in fixing the aluminum panels to moving parts, which in turn must be firmly fixed to the supporting profile.
Installation of aluminum composite panels are cut according to drawings prepared in advance, cutting of aluminum panels is possible on a format-cutting or milling machine, then the panels are milled for a bend at a depth of 1.2-1.5 mm with a material thickness of 3 mm. The finished panels bent at the milling site are directly mounted on the frame.
Why is aluminium composite panel cladding popular?
A wide variety of surfaces are faced with aluminium composite panels, and such materials are becoming more and more popular with consumers every year. This state of affairs would not be possible if composite materials did not have many advantages, among which are:
- High thermal insulation characteristics — in winter, such cladding will retain heat and, therefore, reduce the amount in utility bills. On the contrary, during the summer period, aluminum panels prevent excessive heating of the interior, so that climatic equipment can be used less frequently.
- Long service life — with proper use and periodic maintenance, aluminum panels can serve well for 50 years.
- Versatility — the ductility of aluminum makes it possible to obtain various types of slabs – with texture, mirror finish, imitation “wood imitation”, etc. As a result, the composite panel can be adapted to almost any type of building project.
- Highest resistance to corrosive effects — such cladding can be used in various regions of Australia, regardless of climatic and temperature conditions. Aluminum materials are not afraid of humidity, high and low temperatures.
All of the above benefits are no doubt important. However, the main difference of these materials from other design developments is the possibility of modification. It is very important as such material can be given any configuration not only in a special workshop with modern equipment, but also on a regular construction site. Aluminum composite panels even come in curved shapes with slightly rounded or sharp corners.
