Austech External Building Products  specialises in a wide range of facade cladding solutions for buildings and homes.

Key factors driving the selection of facade cladding products include attractive appearance, protection and minimal maintenance requirement.

What is facade cladding?

Facade claddings are typically non-load bearing panels mounted to the supporting structure for aesthetic reasons. Designed to support their own weight, facade cladding products can go beyond their aesthetic value to greatly enhance the overall thermal and acoustic properties of a building, especially with extra insulation installed behind.

Types of facade cladding

Austech specialises in lightweight cladding systems offering three options including vinyl cladding, stone cladding and foamular extruded polystyrene - EIFS (External Insulation & Finishing System).

Selecting the right facade cladding

Facade cladding products are selected based on the budget allocated for the job. Stone cladding products offer beauty and elegance although vinyl cladding is a cost-efficient solution that can give a distinguished and classic look.

Maintenance is a major factor in the selection of cladding materials. Austech facade cladding products require little to no maintenance while other types of cladding including timber will require regular cleaning and refinishing to keep them looking and working at their best. Vinyl cladding products only require minimal maintenance.

Austech External Building Products has been supplying the home improvement industry for over 25 years with a wide range of cladding products including Duratuff Select vinyl cladding, foamular and CraftStone among others.
