In the realm of modern architecture and design, the quest for creating stunning exterior spaces is never-ending. As homeowners and designers strive to achieve the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality, composite slatted cladding emerges as a versatile solution that effortlessly elevates the facade of any property. Manufactured from an innovative capped composite material that is environmentally friendly, these slatted panels replicate the look of individual timber slats whilst being easy to install and low-maintenance.
A Fusion of Natural Beauty and Innovation:
Composite slatted cladding is a remarkable fusion of natural beauty and cutting-edge technology. Crafted from a blend of wood fibers and high-quality synthetic materials, this type of cladding replicates the authentic appeal of timber while offering the advantages of modern innovation.
The result is a product that not only exudes timeless elegance but also boasts exceptional durability, standing strong against the elements for years to come. Unlike timber slatted cladding, there is no need to varnish, paint or seal these panels.
A Palette of Slatted Cladding Possibilities:
One of the most appealing aspects of composite slatted cladding is its diverse range of colors, patterns, and finishes. Currently available in 6 colours including coffee, walnut, teak, charcoal, stone grey, and silver grey.
Whether you seek a sleek contemporary look or a more rustic charm, there's a design to cater to every style preference. The carefully curated selection allows you to personalize your exterior spaces, giving them a character that harmonizes with your overall architectural vision.
The Perfect Balance of Openness and Privacy:
Incorporating composite slatted cladding into your property's exterior creates a seamless balance between openness and privacy.
The slatted design allows for just the right amount of light and air to filter through, offering good brightness inside your home. Simultaneously, it forms a protective shield that provides a sense of seclusion, making your outdoor spaces a serene retreat from the outside world.
Featuring a four-slat castellation, each of these slatted wall cladding panels gives a 200mm coverage when lapped – giving more scope than the average slatted board on the market.
Low Maintenance, High Quality:
Unlike traditional timber cladding, composite slatted cladding requires minimal maintenance. No need to worry about staining, sealing, or weathering over time. A simple routine of occasional cleaning will keep your cladding looking as good as new. This low-maintenance feature not only saves time but also ensures that your investment retains its charm for years, giving you peace of mind and a sense of satisfaction.
Sustainable Building Choice:
As environmentally conscious practices gain popularity, composite slatted cladding proves to be an eco-friendly choice.
By utilizing recycled materials and sustainable manufacturing processes, it reduces the demand on natural resources, making it a responsible selection for your property.
For optimal performance, it is advised to install every cladding board onto a robust supporting batten system.
Ensure a minimum 30mm gap between the wall and the cladding board, along with a continuous 15mm gap between the top and bottom of the frame system. These gaps facilitate ample airflow, effectively preventing the accumulation of water and promoting a well-ventilated environment.
