The development of aluminium cladding like the Ullrich Aluminium UlltraClad system has added another dimension to commercial and residential building design. The hardest decision you will have to make is which aluminium cladding to choose with a huge range of horizontal and vertical weatherboards available from Ullrich Aluminium.

The Features and Benefits of Ullrich Aluminium UlltraClad

Corrosion Resistant – Low Maintenance

Ullrich UlltraClad aluminium cladding is corrosion resistant as when aluminium is exposed to the air a thin layer of aluminium oxide is created which creates a protective coating. With the corrosion resistance also comes low maintenance only requiring a wash and clean once or twice a year (depending on your location). To remove common dirt and grime just water and mild pressure will do the job.

Lightweight

Compared to steel, aluminium is 66% lighter and is a great alternative. The weight of the product makes it easy to work with and manoeuvre around a building site.

Non-Combustible

Aluminium itself is considered a non-combustible material for construction purposes. It can handle temperatures up to 600 degrees celsius. This is a great option for bushfire-prone areas where you might encounter fire.

Great range of styles and colours

With six different styles covering both horizontal and vertical options the UlltraClad has got your home or building covered, literally. UlltraClad is available finished in a series of Dulux and Interpol powder coat colours. Other non-standard colours, as well as anti-graffiti and timber look finishes, are available on request.

Standard lengths

When installed, the cladding is effectively 15mm thick. The weatherboards are supplied in 5m lengths, however, shadoline board is also available in 6.5m lengths. Cladding extrusions are available in the following widths:

  • Tee = 140mm
  • Traditional = 150mm
  • Vertical = 175mm
  • Standard = 190mm
  • Corrugated = 185mm
  • Shadoline = 205mm

A builder’s best friend

Scott Holland is a builder on the Gold Coast, QLD and swears by Ullrich UlltraClad aluminium cladding. Having recently been introduced to the product through a fellow builder it has now become his go-to cladding choice and is the only weatherboard that he will quote on his jobs.

“Ullrich have manufactured a great product that is so easy to install and with its great range of colour options I find it very easy to recommend to my clients.”
