Façades

Façades are used to provide protection, insulation and aesthetics to any type of building. Façades can be made from numerous types of material to suit the surrounding environment and specific building requirements. Products include:

  • Alpolic Cladding: A sustainable and versatile rainscreen cladding manufactured by Mitsubishi Chemicals which comprises two layers of metal sandwiching a fireproof core. The tension-free aluminium and plastic composite material offers a low stress finish with a high degree of flatness and is available in panels of up to 4.8m in length in a vast array of colours. Alpolic cladding is suitable for commercial, industrial and residential applications.
  • Aluminium Cladding: Aluminium is strong, stable, and lightweight and requires very little maintenance and is especially suited for rainscreen cladding. When the material is equipped with a protective anodised layer or coating it is resistant to any type of weather.
  • Stainless Steel Cladding: A chic and stylish finish can be achieved with stainless steel cladding which is highly resistant to corrosion and suited to aggressive environments such as tunnels, railway stations and airports. Numerous finishes can be achieved through grinding, brushing, bead blasting and polishing.
  • Corten Steel: A material which produces a corroding protective layer when in contact with the atmosphere and is suitable for the construction of stunning façades.
  • Steel Cladding: Sendzimir galvanised steel is less resistant to corrosion than aluminium, but can be applied to façades of buildings under certain conditions to achieve stunning results.
  • Vitreous Enamelled Steel: A superior quality product suitable for cladding applications. The finished outer glass layer offers a strong, wear-resistant surface which can incorporate various printing options ideal for logos and branding.
  • GRP Cladding: Fibreglass reinforced polyester is a long life, robust cladding system with a coloured gel top layer that requires very little maintenance. The polyester is produced in moulds and lends itself to many design options.
  • Concrete Cladding: Fibreglass reinforced concrete is a perfect and cost-effective alternative to natural stone and is available in many textures ranging from super smooth to rough. A wide range of colour options will dictate the final visual aspect.
  • Glass Cladding: An alternative to aluminium panels, glass panels are more open and transparent and can be fixed using various methods including spiders, fixing consoles or invisible fixing using structural bonding. The glass is also available with films or silk-screens.
  • Composite Wall Elements: A cost effective and efficient alternative to traditional brick or blockwork, often used with projects utilising steel construction and concrete floors. Generally built from timber/steel frame, the elements are normally fixed to the edge of the concrete floor or structure and finished with a rainscreen façade.
  • Curtain Walling: Sorba can design and build a wide range of curtain wall and glass façade systems for buildings which provide increased natural light and low level transparency.

  • Ceilings: The ceilings can be manufactured from numerous materials and various finishes such as perforated and expanded metal panels.
