Cladding systems for steel buildings consist of roof sheets and wall sheets which are pre-fabricated in panels that are then attached to the structural frame of the building.
High-quality, well-designed, properly-installed cladding helps maximise thermal performance, minimises air leakage, and optimises natural daylight. Thus, helping to reduce the need for mechanical and electrical building services. And so improves energy efficiency resulting in lower capital and running costs.
Single Skin Plastisol 0.7mm Roof Panels and 0.5mm Wall Panels
Single skin cladding is recommended for buildings that are going to be used purely for storage facilities. Anti-condensation panels on the roof can also be used.
Composite panels are used for buildings that are to be insulated and there are many variations of cladding to choose from. Although, this will be dependent on the U value required for the building.
- 120mm Core roof panels with 100mm core wall panels
- 100mm Core roof panels with 80mm core wall panels
- 60mm Core roof panels with 40mm core wall panels
- 40mm Core roof panels with 40mm core wall panels
Sharp and Strong use Kingspan cladding which carries the relative fire test accreditation and certification. Therefore, for that reason, we recommend checking this as some of our competitors don’t! Composite is a good choice, as it prevents condensation, is secure, and has a 60-minute burn time, should there be any firewall conditions, in terms of proximity to other buildings, your boundary, roads, or footpaths.

Sharp and Strong also include roof lights which offer a cost-effective solution to providing natural light in buildings. Therefore, with light transmission levels of over 80%, our roof lights are ideal for retail, leisure, warehousing, industrial and agricultural projects.
