If you’re looking for a robust but aesthetically pleasing solution to keep your building’s external wall dry, whilst protecting against harsh weather and atmospheric erosion, decorative rainscreen cladding is the ideal option. Ventilated decorative cladding utilises the natural wind airflow to control rainwater and prevent it from entering the building whilst condensation is drained out through ventilation inlets and outlets.
The ventilated air space serves multiple functions too, the air in the cavity will circulate due to air pressure and thermal differentials over the height of the building.
In a cold climate this causes condensation at the rear of the cladding to dry, whilst in a warm climate the moving air will cool the inner layers of the construction, reducing the demand for air conditioning and the chance of mould and mildew developing.
At Gordian Building Solutions we work with multiple decorative cladding manufacturers including Equitone, James Hardie and Cembrit to offer an extensive choice of decorative rainscreen cladding options that provide robust levels of façade protection, alongside unlimited creative opportunities for designers to produce eye-catching structures.
All of which are suitable for use in all types of construction projects including residential, commercial, public and private sector buildings.
As well as supplying full sized rainscreen cladding panels, we also offer our clients a bespoke in-house CNC fabrication service, meaning all decorative cladding panels arrive cut to size and ready to install. This alongside a nationwide distribution and sales network, means our customers can benefit from fewer deliveries, which are made direct to site, reduced installation time and less waste.
