Facade cladding is extremely important both for functional and for aesthetical reasons. Vertical external cladding is a filter, a physical bordering, it’s a way the building mingles with the environment and it influences the perception we get from the building. Depending on the geographic area, the use, the climate, the design and the budget you can choose from several types of façade cladding. Metal panels, holed and ashlared sheets and metal mesh to make complete facades. And then, natural and reconstituted stone finishes, wooden sheets and laminated transparent or opaque plastic layers for bright and colorful facades. From the traditional materials to the most innovative ones like the Corian®, the Hi-Macs® or Cor-Ten steel, everything is at a click away.
