How to understand aluminium rainscreen cladding for H92

April 8, 2020

What is the best aluminium cladding

The dynamic of design is constantly changing and what we have is right up to date with current trends. Biophilia is certainly a design style to connect us closer to nature, and so is Technowood. This is Aluminium cladding that has been completely covered in a beautiful timber veneer. It looks like timber and not aluminium…

It’s not a “just been created” it’s more like “if this has been about commercially for over 10 years why haven’t I heard about it”.

How long does aluminium cladding last?

Aluminium as a stand-alone product will last for over 40 years, with most aluminium covered in plastic lasting about 15 years. Technowood is warranted for up to 25 years and has a service life much longer than that.

Vertical aluminium cladding with texture

Technowood aluminium wood cladding has texture. The veneer that it is wrapped in is real timber and so the grain flows, it’s tactile and does add a sophisticated quality to any project. Used in Schools, Colleges, restaurants, Hospitality, Hotels and private buildings it is specified because of the way it looks.

Why you should be using aluminium cladding.

If compared to timber then Technowood should win hands down. There are many short comings that timber has which are not apparent in wood coated aluminium. There’s no movement, splitting, checking, warping nor cracking. It’s millimetre perfect and stays that way.

How much does aluminium cladding cost?

One can’t offer a price with a specification and with Technowood not limited to one product, it has hundreds it’s best to enquire with a specification.

Is aluminium cladding suitable for houses?

Of course, there have been hundreds of properties that have been clad in the many different products that Technowood has to offer, from plain cladding boards to complex cladding and fin arrangements with matching windows and doors.

How do you clean and maintain Technowood cladding?

Due to the make-up of the timber fibres and the specialist oils that are applied the surface has micro technology to enable a self-cleaning surface. Maintenance is therefore very much removed in the short term. If after many years, you with to apply a finish oil again simply wipe down with a mild soapy cloth, dry and then reapply the surface oil…
