Corrugated vs Sureclad roof and wall cladding
Cladding is important for buildings as a great way to safeguard and protect the buildings from any weather conditions. It is also a low-cost maintenance option as it does not need much cleaning and repairing other than a regular wash every now and then to keep the clean and sleek look. There are plenty of materials normally used for cladding such as wood, plastic, imitation stone or metal varieties.
There is not only a variety of materials used but there are types of techniques in cladding also used which vary, such as Corrugated and Sureclad.
Corrugated roof and wall cladding
Corrugated metal cladding is rippled metal sheets used for roofing applications. There are many advantages of this type of cladding that allow Entegra to deliver on its projects. The more commonly used galvanized corrugated metal sheet roofing is one of the most durable and withstanding roofing materials. It protects against corrosion in air and water with expected life of 50 years. With the ability to contract and relax with heat, corrugated metal sheet roofing is extremely weather proof guarding your building through hailstorm, heat, snow, even hurricanes. It is able to reflect some of the sunrays which helps in regulating the room temperature. The lightweight material puts less stress on the underlying walls and does not require much framework and support which can also reduce your costs of installing.
Sureclad roof and wall cladding
Sureclad system was developed by Sureclad Shackerley. Offering a range of innovative rain screen installation systems for both new projects and existing buildings, Sureclad offers 4 main installation systems that aim to reduce installation time namely Sureclad Access system, Sureclad Hanging system, Sureclad Ventirail system and Sureclad Ladder system. The system allows the company’s ceramic granite slab to be mechanically fixed to a metal substructure with a patented steel undercut anchor system. This design ensures flexibility and durability as component parts and profiles are engineered in high grade aluminum. Sureclad system also accommodates thermal expansion on all of its primary fixing brackets and horizontal rails which are supplied pre-punched with fixed and flex mounting points. Not only time efficient, Sureclad system is also cost effective and the ceramic granite is relatively lightweight compared to other natural quarried stone without compromising on its strength and durability.
Both cladding systems have their own unique advantages. For most of the projects, Entegra chooses corrugated cladding for its withstanding and lightweight material. With our 30 years of experience, Entegra always puts its best effort for all customers.
