Cladding is a crucial part of construction. Not only does it add to the aesthetics of the building, but it also provides a protective layer that shields the underlying structure from the elements, improving durability and energy efficiency. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the step-by-step process of applying cladding to an aluminium frame structure, from the initial assessment to the installation, as well as the benefits of utilising cladding for your construction project. 


The installation of aluminium cladding 

At Lauralu, our approach to the application of cladding to an aluminium frame involves precision and expertise. Here are the 6 crucial steps that need to be carried out to achieve successful cladding installation: 


Initial assessment and planning

Before the cladding installation begins, our team conducts a thorough assessment of the building’s design, purpose, and location. This step ensures that the chosen cladding solution aligns with the building’s intended use and environmental demands.


Material selection 

The choice of aluminium cladding sheets is crucial. Lauralu offers a range of options, each tailored to specific requirements such as insulation, fire resistance, and aesthetic appeal. For instance, insulated cladding can significantly contribute to energy efficiency by minimising heat loss, reducing energy consumption, and enhancing comfort.


Preparation of the steel frame

Before the cladding can be applied, the aluminium frame is inspected to ensure that any surface imperfections are corrected to provide a smooth and even foundation for the cladding sheets. 


Installation of cladding sheets

Once the frame is ready, the installation of aluminium cladding sheets can begin. Through advanced techniques, our expert team attach the sheets securely to the frame. This step demands precision to achieve seamless integration, preventing any potential gaps that could compromise the building’s weather resistance.


Insulation materials 

For projects where insulated cladding is chosen, this step involves the incorporation of insulation materials. Lauralu’s insulated cladding not only contributes to temperature regulation but also reduces noise infiltration, creating a more comfortable and productive indoor environment.


Finishing touches 

The final step involves adding finishing elements, such as trims, flashings, and sealants. These details not only enhance the building’s appearance but also play an important role in maintaining the quality and durability of the cladding.


What are the benefits of Lauralu’s aluminium cladding solution? 


Lauralu’s aluminium cladding sheets are engineered to withstand the harshest conditions, ensuring the building remains strong and weather-resistant over time. 


Energy efficiency 

The use of insulated cladding helps to regulate indoor temperatures, reducing the building’s carbon footprint and energy expenses. 



Aluminium cladding provides a range of design possibilities, allowing builders to create appealing facades to suit the building’s purpose and surroundings. 



Aluminium cladding is adaptable to various building types, from industrial warehouses to commercial spaces, temporary structures and more. 



By acting as a barrier against moisture, UV radiation, and corrosion, aluminium cladding helps to prolong the building’s lifespan, minimising maintenance costs.
