Rainscreen Cladding Materials

At Fusion Facades, we understand that choosing the right materials for your project is a crucial decision that involves a delicate balance of aesthetic appeal, cost-effectiveness, and environmental impact.

Rainscreen Cladding Materials – Aluminium

Our specialty lies in the production of high-quality aluminium rainscreen cladding, a material renowned for its exceptional properties. Aluminium is not only visually appealing but also stands out for its sustainability attributes.

Renewable and Replaceable:

Aluminium is derived from bauxite ore, a resource that is abundant in nature. This ensures that our use of aluminium does not compromise future availability.

Recyclable:

Aluminium is highly recyclable without losing its inherent properties. Choosing aluminium rainscreen cladding means contributing to a circular economy, reducing waste, and lessening environmental impact.

Plentiful Supply:

With its widespread availability, aluminium is a material that aligns seamlessly with sustainability goals, making it an excellent choice for projects focused on environmental responsibility.

Rainscreen Cladding Materials – Stainless Steel

In addition to aluminium, we offer stainless steel rainscreen cladding, another premium choice for architects and developers. Stainless steel is known for its durability, corrosion resistance, and timeless aesthetic appeal. Consider the following sustainable aspects.

Longevity:

Stainless steel is a durable material, ensuring a longer lifespan for your rainscreen cladding. This longevity contributes to reduced material consumption and waste over time.

Recyclable:

Similar to aluminium, stainless steel is highly recyclable. Opting for stainless steel rainscreen cladding supports the principles of circular economy and minimizes the environmental footprint.

Low Maintenance:

The minimal maintenance requirements of stainless steel further enhance its sustainability. Less frequent replacements mean fewer resources used and less impact on the environment.
