AliBat is a structural cavity batten for incorporation into installations of exterior cladding materials on buildings to achieve fire performance and high wind rating.
AliBat is extruded from 6061-T6 aluminium alloy and can be incorporated as a structural element. Designed in New Zealand by Nu-Wall, Alibat has been tested by BRANZ Structural Engineers, and is suitable for tall buildings above 10m, with wind pressure performance verified up to design differential pressures of 6.09 kPa.
Alibat, if designed, used, installed and maintained in accordance with the statements and conditions of the technical literature, will meet or contribute to meeting the following provisions of the NZBC:
AliBat was developed by Nu-Wall in response to the Amendment in early 2017 to NZBC Clauses C/AS2-7, which applied restrictions to the use of combustible external cladding systems. While primarily developed for incorporation into installations of Nu-Wall Aluminium Cladding, AliBat is compatible for use with a variety of cladding products. Nu-Wall has been supplied to construction projects throughout New Zealand for over 20 years.
AliBat, incorporated into panels clad with Nu-Wall, has been subjected to testing by BRANZ Structural Engineers.
Structures Test Report #ST1234-001-02 concludes that the configuration tested has the ability to resist design differential pressures up to:
