Welcome to ROCKWOOD CLADDING - South Africa
Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding has been manufacturing decorative mouldings for the past 17 years. Most of our products were manufactured specifically for the furniture trade. About 11 years ago Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding made wall cladding with a specific outdoor application. This required our products to be robust, weather proof and UV resistant. This was achieved using a coating called Jesmonite and crushed granite powder mixed with a strong bonding agent.
Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding now boasts a decorative panel combining our industrial strength polyurethane with an all weather coating. Our cladding is a lightweight hard wearing panel that is an exact replica of brick, slate, wood or rock finishes. Not only is the Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding cladding 100% water-proof, it acts as a thermal insulator and an acoustic board.
The Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding Polyurethane that is used in our wall cladding panels was originally developed for military use. This formulation used in our panels provides a high density flexible inner core without losing the lightness of polyurethane. Polyurethane has a high thermal co-efficient
Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding cladding is fire retardant. When tested with our principle supplier it was shown not to melt and does not serve as a combustion base: it is a stable product that does not perish, is water resistant and completely UV resistant.
Handling and working with the Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding cladding panels is easy. The product is light weight, solid, easy to cut and can be adapted to fit all spaces. The panels are designed to key together and interlock, making it easy to install. Rockwood Decorative Wall Cladding manufactures both indoor and outdoor panels. They look particularly good on patios, as a feature wall in your lounge or living room.
