Impact Damage

Impact damage to exterior façades and cladding can occur from numerous outside forces, such as windblown debris, vehicular and vandalism, to name but a few.

Cladding panels on industrial and commercial buildings are particularly susceptible to internal and external damage, being subjected to impact from a wide variety of sources related to the nature of their industries. A typical and common occurrence is vehicular impact from HGV’S or forklift trucks within logistics warehouses, hotel and leisure and hospitals. It is also true that you could even cause panel damage by incorrectly maintaining them.

When external forces cause damage to a section of cladding, or to a cladding panel, it is highly likely that the protective external coating has become damaged and could loses the ability to shield the coated metal from weather conditions.

Whilst visible damage to composite cladding panels can be obvious from a simple visual inspection, there can be circumstances where the initial damage appears slight and somewhat insignificant, when in fact the underlying level of damage is significantly greater.

There are varying options available when considering the repair or total replacement of cladding panels. The main influencing factor should be the level of damage that has occurred, and what is required to reinstate its structural performance. Other factors to look into and consider are the costs associated with repair and replacement, as well as sourcing and Profile Matching of existing cladding.

Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) for your cladding is a vital part of ensuring your building’s structure and aesthetics are in top condition – unrepaired damages can worsen over time, leading to major structural damage that can void your building’s warranty.

The UK has recently seen an increase of inclement weather, and cladding panels will need to be inspected as these weather conditions can seriously impact and affect the integrity of the building. Consider incorporating inspections into your annual PPM schedules.
