Wall cladding solutions


Wall cladding refers to materials or panels that are applied to the surface of a wall for decorative or functional purposes, such as insulation or protection. There is a wide range of solutions, from concrete to metal cladding. Let’s explore them together.

What is a cladding on a wall?

Wall cladding is the process of covering the surface of a wall for both practical and aesthetic purposes. Different materials are employed to create wall panels, such as:

  • wood;
  • composite;
  • stone;
  • metal.

Cladding provides many benefits

  • Versatility. The wide range of materials available offers endless design possibilities.
  • Durability. Wall cladding provides protection against moisture, UV rays, and wear and tear. This makes it an ideal choice for both interior and exterior applications.
  • Insulation. Many wall cladding materials offer thermal and acoustic insulation properties to regulate indoor temperatures and reduce noise transmission.
  • Easy maintenance. Unlike painted or wallpapered walls, cladded walls are easy to clean and maintain.
  • Sustainability. Many wall cladding materials are sourced from sustainable or recycled sources


What are the different types of wall cladding?


Here are some examples of materials for the type of panels used in wall cladding. 

  • Stone cladding. Natural stone is often used for its timeless beauty and durability. Stone cladding can create a rustic, elegant, or modern look.
  • Brick cladding. Brick cladding adds warmth and texture to both interior and exterior walls.
  • Timber cladding. Wood cladding provides a natural touch to any space. Cedar, pine, oak, and other wood species are commonly used for their aesthetic appeal and sustainability.
  • Metal cladding. Metal cladding, such as aluminium, steel, or copper, offers a sleek and contemporary appearance with excellent durability and weather resistance. It is often used for modern architectural designs and industrial-style interiors, especially with the application of expanded metal.
  • Composite cladding. Composite materials offer the look of natural wood with added durability and low maintenance requirements. 
  • Ceramic cladding. Ceramic tiles or panels are considered for interior wall cladding in wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and swimming pools due to their waterproof properties.


What is interior wall cladding?


Interior wall cladding is when you cover one material with another to create a protective and decorative layer on walls. This layer helps keep out things like moisture and also makes the room look better. Inside places like living rooms or offices, wall cladding helps block out noise, keeps heat in or out to make the room more comfortable, and makes the walls last longer.

Interior designers pay attention to wall cladding since it ensures many benefits to living spaces. 

  • Aesthetic appeal: enhances the visual interest of a room with varied textures, colours, and materials.
  • Durability: protects walls from wear and tear, increasing the longevity of the surfaces.
  • Low maintenance: many cladding materials are easy to clean and require minimal upkeep, resulting in cost effectiveness. 
  • Improved insulation: helps in maintaining indoor temperature and reducing energy costs.
  • Increased property value: upgrades the look and functionality of a space, which can boost property value.

Expanded metal is a great choice for interior wall cladding because it is not only cool to look at but also super tough. 

  • Expanded metal comes in all kinds of patterns and sizes.
  • Even though expanded metal is light, it is made to last
  • One of the biggest pluses of expanded metal is how easy it is to install
  • Expanded metal does not need much looking after. It does not stain easily and will not rust or corrode.
