What Are The Most Common Types Of Industrial Cladding?

Industrial cladding is one of the most important elements in ensuring the outside face of an industrial building is kept protected from the elements and any other potential sources of damage. If properly applied, industrial cladding can protect a building from the elements and other outside sources of potential damage, and therefore extend the property’s longevity and lifespan.

Industrial cladding can be carried out in a number of ways and using a number of different materials. Each of these works in a different way, but all of them serve the same basic purpose and achieve roughly the same results; the choice of which one to use therefore comes down to each individual customer’s needs or the circumstances of the job. The lines below details the most commonly used among these methods and materials.

PVC Cladding

PVC is one of the most common materials for industrial cladding jobs, on account of being both affordable and easy to maintain, especially as compared to other types of cladding. White PVC cladding is the cheapest type of industrial cladding available on the market, making it a popular choice among factory owners.

Tile Hanging

Tile hanging is the most traditional method used in industrial cladding, and also one of its most popular, alongside PVC. This is the type of material and method most often associated with cladding, and is particularly prevalent in older factory or plant buildings.

Brick Slips

Though most common in domestic buildings, brick slips are also sometimes used in industrial cladding, particularly thanks to their sturdy and resistant nature. The wide variety of styles and colours these slips tend to be available in further make them attractive to factory and plant owners looking for something different from the traditional colour schemes.

Each of these types of industrial cladding has its own strengths from an aesthetic and functional standpoint.
