Facade / Cladding

 

Exterior design is shifting its focus from 2-D approach towards an advanced and appealing 3-D approach that uses contemporary minimalistic material to create a simple, uncluttered façade. When it comes to metal cladding, architects & building owners usually think of ACP (Aluminum Composite cladding). However, a lot of people are unaware of Zinc Cladding which is a vastly superior product in the market.

We, VMZINC, are one of the top companies in the world that manufactures Zinc Titanium alloy for various architectural facades applications.

Zinc cladding has several benefits of over ACP. Zinc’s resistance to corrosion along with its natural pre-weathered finishes which are driving the ever-increasing popularity of zinc in Wall cladding application. Moreover, Zinc is malleable and can be easily bend in different shapes and forms. This aids in meeting the design requirements of the facade. Not least, but zinc can also be used for simple facades or on complex 3 dimensional parametric facades.

Zinc Cladding - A Superior Choice than the Other Popular Options

You can always use aluminum composite panel, Steel sheets, wood and stone for your exterior wall cladding. There is nothing to deny that They are rather popular options available in the Indian market. For most people, out there aluminum and steel happen to be the primary choices when it comes to Metal Cladding for facades. The likes of Stainless steel and copper are regarded as exotic options in these cases. However, zinc cladding is a lot more durable than the popular cladding options. Zinc is an environmental- friendly metal for a number of reasons. Additionally, Zinc can be recycled infinitely without loss of properties and quality. While the recycling rate of zinc depends mainly on the collection rate of zinc-containing products at their end of life, over 90% of these collected products are recycled.

However, Zinc titanium alloy is a premium metal like copper & stainless steel that offers countless options as well as the flexibility to architects. With these, the architects can experiment with the amazing and creative design ideas for facades.

Zinc Cladding is a highly sustainable green material which is why it is highly recommended for facades and roofs. It has an abundant lifespan that ranges from 80 to 100 years that solely depends on the atmosphere type. And no maintenance or replacement would be required over this long period.

Zinc is also a fungistat, which is an agent that prohibits the reproduction of mold, mildew and fungus. This can greatly reduce the risk of moss or even black mold from forming on the exterior of a building in areas that are in contact with the metal.

In the environmental terms, zinc titanium has been the topmost and efficient material among the metallic solutions used for building envelopes. However, buildings with zinc envelopes are certified across the globe and signify the importance of zinc titanium alloy in obtaining a renowned Sustainable Building certification like LEED, GRIHA, BREEAM, and more.

Zinc Cladding- A Fire Retardant

Fire Resistant or FR grade of the cladding Material coupled with aesthetical appeal are the key features which architects and façade consultants look for while choosing the material for their façade.

In the case of Fire performance, Zinc Cladding is genuinely a Non-Combustible material. Zinc Cladding is Fire Retardant. The pre-weathered rolled zinc meets the requirements of the building material class A2 in line with the standard /EN 13501-1/.

The Prominence of Zinc cladding

As opposed to the likes of dry cladding, zinc wall cladding is highly weather-resistant which its incredible characteristic. In regular steel cladding, you could see rust if the weather conditions are not favorable. On the contrary, zinc cladding can resist such factors while making it highly durable.  In a nutshell, it’s amazing properties make zinc cladding more durable.

Most of us are familiar with the notion of oxidation in which rust on the steel is observed. In the case of steel, it will keep on getting corroded if there is rust on the surface making it worthless to use. On the other hand, when exposed to carbon dioxide and moisture, zinc forms a layer of zinc carbonate on the surface that gives an additional beauty to it along with the desired durability. 

Wide Continuum of Zinc Applications

There can be no doubt that when it comes to metal cladding and metal façade it is hard to find a material that is better than zinc. Resistance to weathering and manufacturability are only some of the benefits that you get from the metal. 

Zinc is a prefered material for modern facade design. Zinc is used as a cladding material in a plethora of architectural applications. For instance, it is used in airports, auditoriums, museums, hangars, commercial buildings, corporate buildings,  new housing estates as well as modern buildings.

We, at VMZINC, understand the immense potential of zinc cladding and hence propose different panel systems of installation which are enumerated below:
