State of Clad, a leading supplier of pre-finished cladding systems in Australasia, has achieved CodeMark status across its full range of building products.
This comprehensive third-party certification across all products means customers can be reassured that they are receiving guaranteed quality products that comply with the New Zealand Building Code and are proven to perform in New Zealand's changing climate.
State of Clad’s National Lightweight Systems Manager, Jonathan Brooks, says the company is proud to achieve this CodeMark status for all of their products.
“This is a big milestone for our company but most importantly, for our customers as this certification shows that our products are compliant with the Building Code requirements which can help save time, money and frustration during the consenting process.” Building consent authorities (BCAs) must accept a CodeMark certificate as evidence of compliance with the Building Code and will not need to sight or assess any of the product's supporting information.
"By designing quality products in a transparent way, we want to give our customers accurate and clear information that can support them in their decision-making and help speed up the overall building process,” says Brooks.
State of Clad systems are widely used in commercial buildings around New Zealand for their versatility, durability, and attractive aesthetic designs. The pre-finished cladding systems are easy to install and built to last, making them a practical choice for commercial clients who prefer low-maintenance options.
All products with a current CodeMark certification are exempt from the new Building Product Information Requirements (BPIR) regulations coming into effect on 11 December.
“This certification will mean customers can spend less time dealing with compliance issues, while still having the confidence that what they are specifying will meet the requirements of the Building Code and perform in the future,” adds Brooks.
