Swish Building Products - Cladding Systems

Cladding Profiles - Colour Fastness - PVC - Performance Testing - Technical Support Team

The Swish range of cladding profiles is CE marked and offers the specifier a choice of 4 styles with a comprehensive range of components, trims and fixings. These profiles are an ideal substitute for timber claddings with the added advantage of attractive, low maintenance qualities, weather resistance and durability.

In addition, they can significantly improve the thermal performance of buildings, particularly when combined with insulation.

Colour Range

Components are supplied as standard in 5m lengths and white.

However, selected cladding profiles are also available in Sahara Beige, Mahogany, Rosewood and Light Oak.

Technical Specifications / Performance Testing
Fire Retardant

Swish Cellular PVC conforms to the following requirements:

  • BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009-D-s3,dO/AVM
  • BS 2782: Part 1: Method 140E:1982 (1988) Alcohol cup test & very low flammability
  • ASTM D2862-77: Critical oxygen index test 48%
  • DIN 4102: Part 1 (Class B)

Colour Fastness

Colour fastness assessed in accordance with BS 1006 shows that white Swish Cellular PVC achieves a rating of 7-8 (8 being the test maximum), and therefore no significant fading or change in whiteness can be expected for a minimum of 20 years.

Swish has also tested its own and its competitors’ products using the latest ACT and suntest protocols.

Both real-time and laboratory tests demonstrate the superior performance of the Swish formulation versus lead-based systems.

Organic pigments used in the manufacture of coloured products are chosen for their colour fast properties.

However, as with all pigments, some natural shading will occur over a number of years.


If intended for use in climates other than those common to Northern Europe, please consult Swish Building Products for advice.

Swish Cellular PVC profiles and components for external use will normally perform satisfactorily in ambient air temperatures up to 50ºC.

Swish Building Products has a dedicated technical support team which offers assistance at all stages of design and construction.
