Building Cladding for Healthcare Facilities
Eco-friendly composite cladding that never needs painting
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, but now WPC cladding (also known as composite timber) is fast becoming the number one choice for architects and designers looking for an eco-friendly and futureproof cladding option. Unlike cladding made from spruce, fir and pine, Dura Cladding requires no preservative treatments and is an attractive and sustainable option for the external walls of low-rise buildings.
Dura Cladding is designed for new builds and renovation projects
Composite Timber Dura Cladding offers huge advantages over traditional wood cladding thanks to its wood plastic composite nature.
The cladding is made using a highly developed extrusion process and contains up to 87% recycled wood so you can still enjoy a stunning timber finish to your cladding, but unlike wood, Dura Cladding won’t rot or split and is warp resistant.
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 and durable WPC wood plastic composite Dura Cladding, this is a thing of the past.
Low-maintenance timber-effect composite cladding
As well as contributing to the overall design of your healthcare facility, Dura Cladding is easily installed using standard tools, needs minimal maintenance and is extremely fade-resistant and stain-resistant.
Combining long-term durability, a stunning natural wood look and a range of widths and colours, Dura Cladding meets the needs of architects and designers who want to specify a timber-finish cladding product without the hassle and added cost of ongoing maintenance.
Requiring nothing more than an occasional pressure wash with water, our composite timber exterior wall cladding is well suited to battling the elements over an extended life cycle in all weather conditions. It also comes with a fantastic 10 year warranty, so you can be confident that your project is designed for the future thanks to Dura Composites.
150mm to 250mm cladding that’s suitable for both horizontal and vertical installation
Choosing whether your composite cladding will run horizontally or vertically, and the width of the planks you want will make a huge difference to the look of your building. Vertical cladding will emphasise the height of your building, whilst wider boards installed horizontally will reduce the apparent size of a large blank wall.
If your healthcare building has lots of windows and doors, but you want to install your cladding panels horizontally, you may be better choosing a smaller width plank, as this will make the overall appearance less disjointed.
If you’re looking for a rustic or traditional appearance then Dura Cladding Weatherboard Type 150 in Barn Black will give you the look you need.
