Eye-catching, low-maintenance and extremely durable – just some of the reasons Alucobond cladding was used for the Green Star-rated Watercare House

face to remember


First impressions count – again and again. Selecting the right cladding for a building ensures it will look its best now and for many years to come.

Kaneba supplied and fabricated the Alucobond composite frames that give the Green Star-rated Watercare House in Newmarket its crisp, distinctive aesthetic, says director Jan Gouws.

"A key fiscal consideration to the building owner was that the Alucobond panels incorporate their own structural frame, eliminating the need for the builder to provide one. This resulted in a faster, more economical construction time.

"Another advantage was that external doors were also clad in Alucobond – matching adjoining walls.

"The cladding offered pluses for JCY Architects, too. It's stable yet flexible, and easy to install. It is also virtually unbreakable and absorbs vibration."
