Easy to install exterior wall cladding that never needs painting, coating or treating

When it comes to architectural facades for hospitals or healthcare facilities, deciding on the right look can be challenge. Do you futureproof your healthcare cladding project using modern materials for a sleek and fresh look or stick with using traditional cladding options such as wood for a natural finish?

In past years, natural wood cladding represented a sizeable chunk of the exterior wall cladding and façade marketplace. Now aluminium cladding with its class A2 fire rating is fast becoming the number one choice for architects and designers looking for an eco-friendly and futureproof cladding option. Unlike other types of cladding, Dura Cladding Flush Aluminium requires no preservative treatments and is an attractive and sustainable option for the external walls of  hospital buildings which require an A2 fire rated product.

With traditional timber cladding, the main cause of failure is fungal decay where moisture content within the timbers is in excess of 20%, but with strong, durable and fireproof aluminium cladding, this is a thing of the past.


Low maintenance timber-effect wall cladding

Combining long-term durability, a stunning anti-glare matt look finish and a range of  colours, Dura Cladding meets the needs of architects and designers who want to specify a timber-sized cladding product without the hassle and added cost of ongoing maintenance- or who require replacement cladding on the outer walls of healthcare buildings with non-combustible material.

Requiring nothing more than an occasional pressure wash with water, our aluminium cladding is well suited to battling the elements over an extended life cycle in all weather conditions. It also comes with a fantastic warranty, so you can be confident that your project is designed for the future thanks to Dura Composites.

Choosing whether your composite cladding will run horizontally or vertically will make a huge difference to the look of your building.

Vertical cladding will emphasise the height of your building, whilst boards installed horizontally will reduce the apparent size of a large blank wall.

Dura Cladding Flush Aluminium also has great sustainability credentials as it can be fully recycled at the end of its life,  delivering long term environmental, social and financial benefits for patients, visitors, staff and the local community.

With a ban on the use of combustible cladding on these kinds of buildings set to be extended,  now is the time to act to ensure the safety of refurbishment or remedial hospital cladding projects and new developments.

We also supply A-rated fire resistant battens which can be combined with fire resistant insulated backing panels as part of your cladding build up to ensure a fully compliant solution.
