Knowing your environment

Lake District Boat Club Roof SprayingCladding Coatings expert team is able to assess the environment at your premises before recommending the best paint system that suits the needs for not only your building type and location but also to be robust and stand up to the environmental affects it may face over time.

The Cladding Coatings team is trained to ISO12944 which certifies on the assessment of the environment for paints and wall coverings.

The ISO 12944 classification explains a number of environmental classifications which are used by Cladding Coatings to determine the appropriate paint system. These range from low risk environments such as heated buildings with a neutral atmosphere to high risk whether in heavy industry or offshore. The environments have been decided following a number of experiments measuring the effects and metal loss for uncoated steel.
