Cladding (construction)

Cladding is the application of one material over another to provide a skin or layer. In construction, cladding is used to provide a degree of thermal insulation and weather resistance, and to improve the appearance of buildings. Aluminium cladding is a form of weather cladding designed to protect against the elements, but also offers thermal insulation. The cladding does not itself need to be waterproof, merely a control element: it may serve only to direct water or wind safely away in order to control run­ off and prevent its infiltration into the building structure. Cladding may also be a control element for noise, either entering or escaping. Cladding can become a fire risk by design or material.


  • Cladding is a type of “skin” or extra layer on the outside of a building.
  • It can be attached to a building’s framework or an intermediate layer of battens or spacers.
  • It is mainly used to stop wind and rain from entering the building.
  • Cladding can also provide sound and thermal insulation as well as fire resistance.
  • It is often used to make a building’s exterior look more attractive.

  • Excellent fire resistance cladding: brick.

  • Poor fire resistance cladding: timber weatherboards, plywood sheets.
