Wall cladding presents an excellent way to provide a building with an extra layer of protection while improving safety and aesthetic appeal. There are different types of cladding of which HPL cladding is the most popular for a variety of reasons. You can find internal and external HPL wall cladding solutions, both of which are endowed with qualities that make for superior performance and aesthetics. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the lesser known attributes of interior as well as exterior HPL wall cladding that help make them ideal wall surfacing solutions.
#1. Fire Retardant
HPL wall cladding comes with fire retardant properties. It is treated with special chemicals that make it capable of arresting smoke emission and delaying the spread of fire in case of an outbreak. This not only makes them a safe choice but also helps you comply with building safety codes of your local authority.
#2. Stain Resistance
One of the biggest advantages of HPL wall claddings is that it is easy to clean and maintain. You just have to wipe it with a damp lint-free cloth to maintain its look. Whether you are installing interior or exterior HPL wall cladding panels, you don’t have to worry about stains and dirt as the panels have stain resistant properties that make it easy to remove stains with a damp cloth and a gentle liquid detergent. It is recommended to refrain from using harsh acidic or alkaline cleaning agents as they may introduce some damage.
HPL wall cladding is made with multiple layers of Kraft paper and phenolic resins bonded together under high pressure and temperature. This makes it resistant to extreme weather conditions as well as general wear and tear. In addition to that, it has excellent UV performance which prevents fading due to prolonged exposure to sunlight.
#4. Consistency In Design
When choosing wall cladding for large surfaces, it is important to ensure that there is consistency in design. Materials such as solid wood are unfit to cover large areas as panels from different logs can have variation in the grain pattern leading to inconsistency in design. When it comes to HPL wall panels, you don’t have to worry about design consistency as they are manufactured in large batches ensuring consistency.
HPL wall cladding not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of a building’s exterior and interior but also serves as an extra layer of protection for the building.
