Why should I consider colour coated Cladding?
We often get asked this question and to be honest it’s not essential for improving the longevity of the timber, but it is a valid point. In the past the main reason that people painted their timber cladding was because they purchased lower quality softwood.
Then in order to help protect it and to prevent the UV sunlight from fading the timber to a dull grey with blackened knots, they would paint the boards mainly black. An example of this can be seen on many barns and older style houses.
What is AtelierClad® Brushed-Grain?
Our Atelier collection can be machined in a wide range of profiles and widths which can provide a seamless transition between cladding and decking. Our Atelier collection is coated and sealed using our specially formulated QFlex® - A flexible, UV, Coater/Sealer in a satin finish. The Brushed Natural Finish is not Class 0 fire rated.
Is the Atelier Brushed-Grain Cladding UV resistant?
Our Atelier Brushed-Grain Cladding range has a two stage UV resistant coating system with a washable surface. In effect the coating system has been made flexible to accommodate any subtle movement in the timber.
This coating will also resist flaking, cracking and peeling, it is also Non-Flammable and has a low VOC, so it can be used internally and externally. Our sample panels have been walked over as doormats continuously with work boots for the past 18 months in our yard and the colour still remains.
Is there any on-going maintenance with the Atelier Brushed-Grain Cladding?
Nowadays, advances in technology on timber and paint production have moved. So, providing the timber cladding has a fairly low and stable moisture content and the correct paint is applied, then ongoing maintenance will be very low. The colouring of Atelier Brushed-Grain Cladding will be more about the aesthetics and design intent instead of protecting the timber from the weather.
Please make sure you order enough material to complete your project as there may be a subtle variation in colour from batch to batch and we cannot guarantee that a future batch will exactly colour match your existing product.
