Why Choose Zinc Cladding?
As a natural material, zinc is produced with a lot less energy than other metals, making it far more environmentally sound. Refining zinc takes about a quarter of the energy needed to refine aluminium, and half the energy to refine copper or stainless steel.
Zinc cladding in Australia is also 100% recyclable, meaning it’s a material that’s never wasted. When it’s time for the cladding to come down, it can be melted down and entirely reused. Recycled zinc is therefore a popular choice for varying products throughout the world, reducing costs and energy used in production.
The durability of zinc surpasses many other materials. Zinc panel cladding could last you well over a century, and when it’s time to bring it down or replace it, it can be re-smelted and reused. Many roofs that were originally constructed with zinc in Europe in the late 18th century still have their original zinc cladding.
Choosing zinc cladding in Melbourne means you’re choosing a material that is resistant to rust and corrosion, as it reacts to oxidisation differently to other metals. Zinc forms a protective layer when exposed to moisture and carbon dioxide, preventing it from corroding.
The beauty of zinc panel cladding in Australia cannot be denied. Choosing us as your zinc sheet metal suppliers means choosing a visually stunning material for your roof and other architectural needs.
