The information below sets out some important aspects that need to be considered at the design stage.
Cladding Profile Styles
The size, profile, orientation (horizontal, vertical and diagonal) of boards and the natural appearance or addition of colour, offers infinite design flexibility and encourages innovation.
There is a wide choice of standard profiles available in softwoods, modified woods and hardwoods. Dimensions and styles can vary from one manufacturer to another so always obtain samples and agree quality parameters prior to confirming your selection referring to British Standard BS 8605, External Timber Cladding Part 1: Method of specifying. for guidance.
If you require a bespoke profile or a specific species then contact the TDCA, we will be more than happy to liaise with our members on your behalf.
Only specify cladding manufactured under a recognised quality scheme such as the TDCA CladMark/ ISO09001.
