It is during the typical British winter that the concern of building protection is highlighted. Cladding is so much more than just an aesthetic building covering. It also protects and insulates a building from harsh external conditions. CGL has the capability to manufacture and install cladding especially designed for this purpose, available in a wide variety of materials and colour options.
CGL’s Rainscreen cladding is popular for riverside buildings and tall buildings that are exposed to varying atmospheric conditions. Fabricated and tested under strict standards set by the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology, it is guaranteed to offer a high level of protection against water, wind and solar damage.
Looking to 2016
Cladding does not just offer protection against the wind and rain. It can also help to maintain a consistent internal environment through its insulating properties, therefore reducing the need for central heating and air conditioning systems, both of which can be expensive to run in large developments.
The Met Office predicts that 2016 is going to be one of the warmest years in history, following 2015 as being the warmest year on record. This is a result of global climate change, as are the current stormy conditions. Therefore, cladding can provide an all year-round solution for your building.
