Scope of Use

The AliClad system is designed for very high wind loadings and is designed to be fixed at maximum span distances for reduced project costs. It will also soon be verified with a full wall assembly test (BS8414) for buildings over 10mtall.

At 2.2mm 6063T5 Aluminium Alloy with a high tensile and rigidity properties, AliClad has excellent impact resistance, making it ideal for high-traffic areas such as schools. Improved rigidity over other systems comes from its depth and structure.


Statement of Building Code Compliance

The system has been designed in line with NZBC Acceptable Solutions. It is currently being tested to be compliant with E2:VM1 and NZS4284.

Aluminium is non-combustible under the NZBC and the support system has a limited / non-combustible wall assembly. AliClad is also currently being tested for full scale system fire performance to BS8414.

Other Performance Attributes

AliClad comes with a full assembly kit. It can interface easily with other façade systems, giving designers flexibility. Built- intolerances, and the elimination of sealants and tapes, means AliClad provides a long-term mechanical sealed solution. The design of the system also gives builders the option to install the windows either before or after the cladding goes on.
