Commercial building cladding considerations

The term ‘commercial building’ covers a wide range of different business premises. From customer-facing businesses, like shops and restaurants, to supply chain premises, like warehousing, commercial building applications are far-reaching.

Some types of commercial buildings include:
– offices
– shops
– shopping centres
– warehouses
– logistics centres
– restaurants
– hotels
– cinemas
– theatres
– and more…

For building owners and operators in any sector, the primary consideration must be the safety of the occupants of the building. Commercial buildings must meet a range of standards pertaining to:
– building structure
– fire safety
– resistance to contaminants and moisture
– sound dampening
– ventilation
– and more…
The British government’s Approved Documents outline these regulations.

Cladding options for commercial buildings

The right cladding for your commercial building will depend on your specific business and its needs. If your business requires temperature regulation, as many within the food prep, pharmaceutical, retail and storage sectors do, you will require cladding with different characteristics to a business that is focusing on fire safety.

Thankfully, at Isoclad, our range of cladding options for commercial buildings means we can select the perfect panelling for your requirements.
