Composite panels are a cement base with a small metal layer and fiber filler. This type of panels perfectly protects the wall from any damage and weather conditions.

Plates made of polyvinyl chloride are panels imitating wood or natural materials.

Such panels do not require foundation reinforcement.

Fiberglass panels range in size from one to three square meters. m., it is this version of the panels that imitates natural materials such as wood, brick or natural stone.

  3. And of course, the duration of the building's operation and the thickness of its walls are of great importance.


Before installing the panels, if necessary, a frame made of metal profiles or wooden slats is attached. This will create additional air circulation to maintain a comfortable temperature in the building. The frame must be treated with a special compound (protecting against corrosion or decay).

The panels are fastened with nails, dowels, screws to the crate installed earlier.

If there is none, then the panels are simply glued to the wall of the building.
