Colorbond® is a lead-free paint that is applied on a steel core. It is more than just “painted steel” since it provides the highest protection and durability for your homes and buildings that ordinary paint cannot. Colorbond® has been utilised in Australian homes for almost 50 years! Why? Colorbond® is designed to endure the harsh conditions seen in Australia. To fulfil Australia’s high grade and strength standards, it has completed several tests such as corrosion, durability, exposure, and application testing for all applications.
Metal Cladding Systems
Wall clading and metal roofing go hand in hand these days, we do both. In both residential and commercial markets. With a huge range of profiles Architectural Cladding Melbourne has you covered for metal cladding systems.
Architectural Cladding Systems
These days, Architectural cladding is becoming more and more common. Having both residential and commercial applications. Architectural cladding has numerous advantages in Melbourne. The first is that it’s a fantastic way to personalise your property and make it unique to you or your company. The right cladding can also aid with energy efficiency and protect the building from Melbourne’s ever-changing weather.
Cladding designs, styles and cladding profiles we install
Our Cladding Profiles
Standing Seam delivers a conventional, polished aesthetic with maximum versatility. Other systems can’t achieve detailed designs like Standing Seam. The concealed anchoring mechanism of the system is excellent for dramatic residential and commercial architecture facades.
We recommend experienced cladding specialists install Standing Seam, who own and understand the specific seam closing tools required for proper installation. This is where Architectural Cladding Melbourne come in.
Standing Seam and Snaplock have similar aesthetics to Nailstrip. Owner builders, rookie installers, and people who desire an architectural ‘look’ without difficult installation details love Nailstrip because of its ease of use.
A smooth, modern profile design for a Stylish system. The dramatic express joins and flat appearance of interlocking cladding creates a sleek and clean looking facade in modern architectural structures.
Interlocking’s enormous tray widths and variable express connects, which are solely suitable for wall cladding, allow for the creation of unique and different wall solutions.
Flat Lock Panels are a basic yet appealing cladding option that gives a horizontal or vertical flat seam comparable to shiplap. On all four sides, the method uses a basic interlocking fold.
This approach is applicable for any structure up to 30 meters in height. The hidden clips are used to install the pre-formed panels.
Standard panel widths for Aluminium or Colorbond are 330mm, and for Zinc, they are 430mm. These are designed to minimize wastage owing to coil widths (wider panels are available but may result in distortion or oil-canning). The maximum panel length is 3 meters.
Recessed Flat Lock
Elegant method that produces a smooth surface with a faint negative detail.
Because the panel is folded with a recess and an additional layer of 7mm plywood below the recess, it is a versatile solution with maximum resistance. Material wastage is kept to a minimum, making it cost-effective.
Fully waterproof, with all features and panel connections designed to take use of the material’s inherent water resistance.
The sleek profile of Snaplock is perfectly adapted to new architectural developments. Snaplock’s simpler installation method, which resembles Standing Seam but does not require specialist gear, has become a popular alternative for installers and builders who do not have access to Standing Seam seam closure equipment. Snaplock panels are meant to “snap” together, making installation a breeze.
Do you have a space where regular cladding profiles may not be suitable? We do have customer metal cladding capabilities. Custom cladding is analysed on a case by case basis, and it costs you nothing to enquire, simply discuss your case with one of our team members and we will look into a solution for you and your project.
Start with your material
Our Cladding Materials
Aluminium is a silvery-white, lightweight metal. It is soft and malleable. Aluminium is used in a huge variety of products including cans, foils, kitchen utensils, window frames, beer kegs, aeroplane parts, oh, and architectural cladding.
It’s easy to see why aluminum is quickly becoming a popular roof and wall cladding material. Aluminium can now offer unique project options thanks to developments in color longevity and 3D surface texturing. Aluminium is a cost-effective, lightweight, and high-quality alternative to traditional cladding materials.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, in proportions which can be varied to achieve varying mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties. … Brass is similar to bronze, another alloy containing copper that uses tin instead of zinc.
Brass adds elegance, class, and a sophisticated edge to interior and exterior cladding applications. It’s not quite as warm as copper, but it’s also not as chilly as standard grey zinc.
Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a pinkish-orange color.
Copper’s remarkable tendency to change over time, from bright brassy orange to green, deep brown, and in some cases black, makes it ideal for roof and wall cladding. Its stunning façade evolution and unique material qualities make it ideal for roof and wall cladding.
Steel is galvanised when it is hot-dipped in a zinc coating solution. The steel is protected from particle corrosion as well as general surface scratches and abrasions with this coating. The surfacing is salt resistant and also resists other weather conditions, making it perfect for marine applications.
Galvanised steel can withstand temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius in construction. The zinc’s “weight per surface area” is used to determine the amount to which a sheet has been galvanised.
When you choose one of our steel systems, you’ll be working with Australia’s most reliable and durable product selection, regardless of your aesthetic preferences. For galvanised facade panels, we use BlueScope Steel®, and stainless steel is sourced from a variety of reliable local metal suppliers.
Stainless steel is the “green material” par excellence since it is completely and indefinitely recyclable. In fact, the actual recovery rate in the construction industry is close to 100%. Stainless steel is also environmentally friendly and inert, and its durability guarantees that it fits the demands of long-term building. Furthermore, when it comes into touch with elements like water, it does not leach molecules that could change its composition.
Stainless steel is a long-lasting material that comes in a variety of grades and may be used in a variety of environments.
Titanium zinc is a non-ferrous metal. This means there are no traces of iron in the alloy and the material won’t rust with age. Zinc’s long lifespan, and surface depth, offers homeowners, architects and builders, peace of mind when it comes to product longevity.
Titanium zinc has a high melting point. Zinc’s extended lifespan and depth of surface provide peace of mind to homeowners, architects, and builders when it comes to product longevity. While titanium zinc is long-lasting, its effectiveness, like that of all surface treatments, is dependent on regular and thorough facade cleaning.
Weathering Steel or Corten
Weathering steel, also known as COR-TEN steel and written without the hyphen as corten steel, is a set of steel alloys that were created to avoid the need for painting and form a stable rust-like appearance after several years of exposure to the elements.
Weathering Steel is grayish when it is originally placed. The oxidation process begins once the material is exposed to the environment. The material can take several months to fully convert, changing from grey to bright orange before settling into a rich golden brown.
