Cemintel Territory is an excellent option for commercial and multi-residential projects as it gives the designer plenty of options in colour, texture and installation method. The product also has in service history in New Zealand on commercial buildings, giving the client confidence.
The updated CodeMark certificate now includes Sea Spray Zone D, which had previously been excluded, as well as increasing the building height scope to buildings outside of NZS 3604. Almost all CodeMark certificates are limited by the scope of NZS 3604 or a risk score of 0-20, so being able to offer a cladding product with a CodeMark certificate outside of these limitations is a big advantage when dealing with councils. The Cemintel Territory system can be used on buildings with ULS wind pressures of up to +2.6/-3.3kPa for vertical installation and up to +6.0/-6.0 kPa for horizontal installation.
The Cemintel Territory cladding has been tested to ISO 5660 and has passed the required tests as a Type A cladding for use on buildings over 7m. The product also has a 1-S Material Group Number for internal usage. The product has also been tested in Australia to the AS 5113 fire test standard and reports are available for this whole of wall test as well.
The range has been increased to include the Quarry Concrete, Steppe Alpine and Steppe Montane panels, as well as an indent range of a further nine finishes. On top of these options, the Japanese manufacturer makes over 300 different finishes and colours so for larger projects the option to import a custom panel to meet the design requirements of the building is available.
The product has been used on the Rose Garden Apartments in Albany, Auckland, The Sebel Manukau hotel in Manukau, Auckland and the Wyndham Garden Remarkable Park Hotel in Queenstown as well as a five-story apartment building in Queenstown. The Woodlands Teak panel is currently specified on the Mary Potter Apartments project in Wellington.
