A low maintenance composite cladding alternative to timber
Office Cladding: How to choose the right material
The right external office cladding not only protects your building from the elements, it also plays a significant part in the overall appearance of the building. In any office building design, the walls are the largest single area of material, so choosing the right siding or cladding that can give your business a professional appearance is paramount. But with a myriad of different cladding options out there from fibre-cement or composite timber to PVC, how do you know what’s best for your design and for the building’s end users?
As well as having an aesthetic influence, your choice of external cladding material will also affect the amount of ongoing maintenance your office building will need. Wood is commonly used to clad office buildings, but even popular choices such as Cedar can damage easily if knocked and require significant and costly maintenance to keep it looking at its best. In recent years more durable and highly engineered composite timber or WPC cladding materials such as Dura Cladding have taken the market by storm, thanks to their low lifecycle costs and long-lasting properties. Here’s why we’re a great choice for your office wall cladding:

Composite Cladding in Cedar, Grey, Teak, Charcoal and Barn Black
Our cladding planks are available in five colours. To check colour availability for product types, please visit the product range page. Colour samples are available on request, or for large orders, bespoke colours can be selected.
Please note that colours shown are representative only; actual colours may vary slightly. Whilst Dura Cladding is relatively colour stable, there will likely be some initial colour lightening as the product weathers, which typically occurs in the first 3 months.
Our manufacturing process results in a high level of colour consistency although some variation in colour may be apparent across boards from different production batches.
Dura Cladding Type 250 Flush is available in two attractive colours – Cedar and Grey. All our cladding products are UV Certified to ISO 4892-2, meaning that after the initial expected weathering they will survive even the harshest of climates.
