Column casings – Providing a stylish integrated finish

The finishing touches to any construction project really do contribute to the overall appearance and feel of the build. In many cases it is these finishing touches that increase the client’s level of satisfaction in the project. When it comes to concealing structural columns and unsightly support structures, column casings have become the ultimate finishing touch.  Column casings provide a stylish integrated finish, which provides the perfect solution for concealing internal and external structural columns.

  There are many different types of materials that can be used for column casings. However, aluminum is steadily becoming the most popular material of choice.

Column Casings

Perforated Sheet: Mill Finish (Kings Wharf: Reading)

Aluminum is incredible stuff! It is a unique metal with a positive image that has become the chosen solution, for interior designers and architects worldwide for disguising structural columns. In an attempt to either hide or make a structural column an architectural feature, this incredibly versatile material can be folded, formed and impressed to conceal support structures, including those made of concrete and steel.

The many desirable design properties of aluminum alloy, including its lightweight to strength ratio, makes the material physically and aesthetically suitable for use as a column encasement. In addition to using aluminum casing as a disguise, many designers are now using the material just as a contemporary architectural feature. Aluminum column casing is growing to be the ‘must have’ decorative feature.

Among aluminum’s outstanding qualities are its cost effectiveness, corrosion resistance, durability, flexibility, lightness and sustainability through recycling, in addition to the attractive finish it presents. It should be emphasised that the architectural industry considers  Aluminum as a dependable and versatile material option, appropriate for concealing interior and exterior structural columns.

Advantages of using aluminium in construction

It is certain that Aluminium will become even more widely used in construction as pressure grows for buildings that are flexible, easy to maintain and offer low cost-in-use.

 Aluminium wall cladding

There is certainly scope for growth in a wide variety of structural applications, such as supporting Aluminium sheet roofing on aluminium extruded roofing members. This growth is limited principally by a lack of understanding of Aluminium’s true structural abilities.

Aluminium offers unparalleled manufacturing flexibility, the broadest ranges of finishes, an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, unlimited recyclables and has a far better environmental profile than many specifiers believe. Above all, it offers architects the most elegant and satisfying design solutions.

For many contemporary designers there are simply no alternative to Aluminium – the form dictates the material and the material facilitates the form. This fact alone will ensure the continued growth of Aluminium in construction.

Below we look at the main advantages of using aluminium in construction:

Aluminium in Construction – The perfect material

A building is rarely constructed, completed or refurbished without the use of aluminium these days, 20% of the world’s aluminium is used in the construction industry. The main reason for this is, because the physical properties of this metal make it the perfect low maintenance material for buildings.

Aluminium in Construction

Aluminium is a light weigh material, which means that the load on the bearing of any structure us less, and the strength makes it suitable for a variety of solutions. Its resistance to corrosion gives it the advantage of perfect use within regions exposed to severe weather. A vital reason for the use of aluminium is because its fluidity gives freedom to architects and designers.

Aluminium is becoming increasingly used in the construction industry. It is used to produce ceilings and walls, window frames, blinds, doors, stairs, roof covers, wall panel’s partitions, HVAC systems and to construct houses and shopping centres, stadiums and bridges.

Each year, millions of aluminium frames and doors are installed in new and old buildings. Durable, insulating, with a low compression and expansion ratio, they meet all modern requirements. Advanced technologies mean that solar batteries can be mounted into the frames, and it is expected that this energy-saving method will become popular in the future.

However, the application of aluminium in the construction industry not only opens opportunities for the future, but also helps to save the past. In recent years, aluminium has been increasingly applied as a main material in the restoration and reconstruction of historical buildings.
