Aluminium composite or ACM material is a type of cladding made from two faces of aluminium bonded to a central dark neoprene core. It is becoming the ideal choice for buildings with a contemporary design concept where budget is of utmost importance. ACM is available in a varied range of metallic and powder coated colours. Metallic facades can be bespoke and tailored to the project thanks to their unlimited colour and finish possibilities. Furthermore, this type of façade is not just attractive, but also very functional, proving excellent weather protection to any project. ACM provides a cost effective external cladding solution and compares well cost-wise to HPL’s or other metallic options such as Core Ten or Zinc.
Aluminium cladding is durable, hygienic, lightweight, low maintenance and recyclable. ACM is a popular choice in the industry, due to its flexibility and ease of fabrication. It is impervious to termites and other insects, and because it allows the wall to ‘breathe’, there is a very low risk of leaking. Aluminium composite cladding can be fitted with insulation on the back or underneath in order to improve its energy efficiency.
