Metal Cladding Contractors

Metal cladding functions similarly to other types of external cladding, serving to shield insulated pipes or ducts. Metal cladding is typically made of plain or stucco aluminium, Aluzinc, plastisol, galvanized, or stainless steel. Metals in general are extremely versatile and malleable, however, each material presents its own pros and cons when used as a protective outer cover for your insulation. As leading metal cladding contractors, we’re here to help find the perfect choice for you.

Metal Cladding - Key Benefits



Durability and longevity

Metal pipe cladding offers exceptional durability, making it a long-lasting choice for protecting pipes. It is resistant to environmental factors such as UV rays, moisture, and extreme weather conditions. This results in reduced maintenance needs and costs over time, as metal cladding maintains its integrity and appearance even in challenging conditions.


Improved energy efficiency

A more obvious benefit of metal pipe cladding, it can contribute to improved insulation and energy efficiency of buildings. When used as part of an insulated system, metal cladding helps regulate indoor temperatures by minimising heat loss in colder climates and reducing heat gain in warmer environments. This can lead to lower energy consumption and more comfort for the occupiers, making it an environmentally friendly choice.


Aesthetic appeal

Metal cladding offers a wide range of design options, providing a stunning exterior finish to an insulated pipe or duct. With various finishes, colours, and profiles available, metal cladding can be customised to suit diverse architectural styles and project requirements. This versatility allows for creative expression while maintaining practical benefits.

Metal Cladding for Pipes & Ductwork

Metal cladding is used to protect the exterior of insulated pipes and ductwork. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications within various building settings. Its attributes, including robust mechanical strength, resistance to corrosion, and visually appealing finish, make it an ideal choice for various sectors. Examples of buildings requiring insulated services where metal cladding can be installed include hospitals, apartment complexes, retail spaces, schools, offices, water treatment plants, car factories, and leisure centres.

Since metal cladding is extremely versatile and malleable, there is a choice of materials ranging from plain or stucco aluminium, aluzinc, and plastisol, to galvanised or stainless steel. Each of these comes with its own positives and negatives. For example, stucco aluminium is generally used to clad insulated pipework and ductwork in plant room areas, whereby insulation may be subject to mechanical damage. The main reason metal is used is its ability to protect the integrity of the insulation whilst enhancing its aesthetics. Metal cladding sheets are effective against volatile weather conditions, water absorption, temperature changes and pollution. This makes them a popular and effective weatherproof cladding choice for protecting insulated pipework and ductwork.
