Network Architectural Supports the Decision made by the Victorian Government to Ban High-Risk Flammable Cladding for Multi-Story Buildings

We at Network Architectural would like to applaud the Victorian Minister for Planning, Richard Wynne’s decision to ban the use of high-risk, flammable aluminium composite panels for use as external wall cladding for all multi-storey developments for the future.

We at Network Architectural would like to applaud the Victorian Minister for Planning, Richard Wynne’s decision to ban the use of high-risk, flammable aluminium composite panels for use as external wall cladding for all multi-storey developments for the future.

 

The line has now been drawn in the sand. Aluminium Composite Panels MUST HAVE a core material of greater than 93% inert filler (inert content) by mass in external cladding as part of a wall system for Type A or Type B construction in Victoria.

 

Mitsubishi Chemical Infratec Co. in Japan has developed the new Mitsubishi ALPOLIC NC Non-Combustible Mineral Core Aluminium Composite Material that achieves all of the safety requirements that have been recently implemented in Victoria.

 

  • Core material composed of greater than 95% inert filler (inert content) by mass
  • Non-Combustible laminas as t ested to AS1530.1
  • Fully compliant to Australian Standards through DtS Pathway (C1.9) for use wherever non-combustible materials are required
  • 20 year FULL Cover Warranty (incl. rectification costs) direct from globally trusted manufacturer (Mitsubishi)
  • Manufactured in Japan with proven world class quality control
  • Proven coating durability in Australian conditions for over 30 years
  • Significantly less CO2 emission in manufacture than any alternative compliant aluminium façade material
  • Significantly less heat transfer than any alternative compliant aluminium façade material

 

Keep an eye out for this world leading cladding on a building near you.
