Offering excellent stability, as well as being readily mouldable, Vitrabond is easy to install and extremely weather resistant once in place.

Maintenance of your cladding system should be simple and cost effective. We recommend an annual cleaning regime using soapy water or a pressure hose. Annual maintenance inspections should be carried out to check that features such as panels, seals and flashing are in place and that any ancillary fixings are fully secured. An advantage of Vitrabond is that if any panels are damaged, they can be replaced indidually without compromising structural integrity.
