The fundamentals for a compliant commercial cladding system include structural integrity, weather tightness, fire performance and durability. However, to find a cladding system that meets all those requirements yet is also simple, readily-available and economically viable can be challenging.
Kaneba has risen to this challenge with the 3mm Aluminium Cassette Cladding System. The system features 3mm Aluminium Cladding Panels integrated into an 87mm thick ventilated cladding system, with nominal 24mm joints between panels, with no joint sealant required. Other joint width options are also available.
In designing this system, Kaneba has focused on all the mentioned fundamentals and provided a solution that meets all the criteria.
Fire protection management features are incorporated in the cladding design, and the system meets C3 requirements for Protection from Fire.
The Cassette Cladding system has been successfully tested in accordance with NZS4284 'Testing of Building Facades' for compliance with NZBC (appraisal pending).
Kaneba is able to provide Design Certificates on a per-project basis.
Flexible design options
Panels can be pre-finished, anodised or powder coated with a wide range of colour options available for both the 3mm aluminium facing panels and any visible aluminium extrusions. 5000mm long panels can be incorporated regardless of colour.
While 3mm solid aluminium panels are standard, other panel options are also available — speak to Kaneba to find out more.
Simple and efficient installation
The system can be easily installed by tradespeople, with no specialist contractors required. Site installation can commence as soon as the building's air barrier is installed and before or after window frames are in place.
Each panel’s insertion and removal is independent of other panels — allowing various installation sequencing options during construction or thereafter (bottom to top of building, top to bottom or random).
