Palliside Cladding Comes Out on Top in Real Life Seismic Situation

This farmhouse in Prebbleton was built four months before the first Canterbury earthquake and endured all the aftershocks, including one centred only metres away.  Yet the home’s Palliside cladding system was unaffected and remained watertight throughout the course of the earthquake swarm.  Palliside’s flexibility and unique fixing system, creates a building envelope that adds strength but retains its integrity in an extreme event.

The system is considered lightweight in terms of NZS3604 and its nominal mass of 4.9kg/m2 is well within the maximum allowable (30kg/m2). This feature has increased demand for Palliside in the Christchurch rebuild, especially where land is graded Technical Category 2 (TC2), meaning lightweight cladding and roofing are required.

Palliside is also suitable for homes graded Technical Category 3 (TC3), where specific engineering foundation design is required as the cladding system reduces stresses direct to the foundations, potentially minimising the need for expensive building foundations.  

Weather tested in three countries, Palliside is designed to withstand New Zealand’s unique UV conditions and is BRANZ approved for sea spray zones.
