    All trims are available in Cedar, Mist and Anthracite. Installation of the cladding begins with adding all bearers, followed by base part trims, followed by cladding planks then finally outer part trims. We also supply industry-leading A2 fire rated aluminium battens to enable the installation of a safer system.

    Most aluminium cladding can be painted with metallic paint if desired, however, this can negatively impact the fire safety of the exterior wall cladding. Dura Cladding Aluminium is available in attractive colours and finishes, each of which are fire resistant, adding an extra layer of safety.

    Unlike some traditional materials, aluminium offers outstanding fire resistance, which makes it a safe and attractive option for a range of applications.

    Although the UK government banned the use of combustible materials in the external walls of new schools, hospitals, care homes, student accommodation and for residential buildings of more than 18 metres in height in December 2018, they now plan to go significantly further, by lowering the 18 metre height threshold to at most 11 metres or 4 storeys, under plans currently in consultation.

    Dura Composites can support your building project by helping to design out the risk, to ensure that your building will comply with both current and future building regulations using our A2-s1 d0 fire rated cladding planks.

    Rainscreen cladding is usually fixed to battens and trims which hold it against an exterior wall. Each plank is then screwed or clipped into place to achieve either a flushed or weatherboard effect. Our aluminium cladding utilises an innovative tongue and groove design which allows each plank to lock together without the need for concealed clips or fixings, offering a clean, uniform look.

    Please ensure that you choose a cladding suppliers whose fire testing has been conducted in conjunction with their installation method. Don’t trust any supplier who tests to one method (i.e. on a calcium silicate backing board) and then recommends that you install to a completely different method!

    Dura Cladding Aluminium won’t fade, stain or rot meaning that very little maintenance is required. All that’s needed to keep our cladding looking great is the occasional scrub or pressure wash.

    Like other metals, aluminium is not naturally flammable, which is why it is often used for exterior cladding. That said, some paints and battens, which are used to fix the cladding to the wall, can be – negating the fire resistant benefits of metal cladding. Dura Cladding Aluminium is paired with A2 fire rated battens and fixings, ensuring maximum safety of the cladding system.

    Our cladding comes with a 20-year manufacturer warranty. Provided that the boards have been well maintained and taken care of, if they ever need fixing all you have to do is let us know and we’ll ensure they get back to looking their best.
