Sto Has Strengthened its Facade Offering

Stoanz is pleased to announce that they have recently entered into an agreement with a leading Australian manufacturer to supply 50 and 75mm thick autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panels. In the current climate, with product supply, freight issues, and costs being a constant challenge, they are pleased to have been able to secure a dependable local supplier.

The transition to an alternative supplier of AAC panel brings with it many benefits:

  • Manufactured in Australia to NZ/Au standards — this offers a reliable source of certified materials
  • State-of-the-art factory with the latest technology and increased production facilities
  • Shorter freight routes with less port congestion to provide faster delivery times from the manufacturer to New Zealand ports
  • No supply chain issues from the manufacturer

The StoArmour Facade Panel System, previously StoPoren Panel Facade System, has been appraised by BRANZ since 2012 (BRANZ Appraisal No. 772). The StoArmour Facade Panel System finished in the StoArmat Miral render system has passed a series of stringent compliance tests for commercial and multi-story residential construction.

  • BRANZ Appraisal No. 772
  • Weathertightness testing: E2/VM1 and AS/NZS 4284 for residential or commercial high-rise construction
  • Face load tested up to 4.5 kPa ULS (booth connection sheared at 7.8kPa)
  • Vertical spread of fire testing: BS 8414-2 and ISO 5660-1
  • Good acoustic properties to reduce external noise
  • Installation by Sto Registered Contractor (Licensed Building Practitioner)
  • StoArmat 20 Year Warranty with StoService Assurance

Successful involvement on multi-level/medium density projects include:

  • Elizabeth Towers, Tauranga, by Ignite Architects. (Under construction).
  • Victor Apartments, Auckland, by Archi_On Architects.
  • Erskine, Wellington, by The Wellington Company, CoLab Architecture.
  • Frame Apartments, Wellington, by Archaus Architects.
  • Latimer Central Apartments, Christchurch, by John Street & Context Architects.
  • Zavos Corner, Wellington, by Parsonson Architects.

Stoanz prides itself on using only the highest quality products as part of our facade systems. In the ten years they have had the StoPoren Panel Facade System in the market, they have not had any issues regarding product quality or in-service performance. The StoArmour Facade Panel System follows the same specification.
