Eliminate Risk With Cladding Replacement & Installation

Are your high-risk cladding panels presenting serious concerns for your building? While often neglected, flammable cladding poses a large risk and is a major fire hazard for the whole property. As determined by the regulations outlined in the Australian Building Code, cladding replacement is essential in all buildings that are two storeys or higher. This means they must replace all non-compliant external walls. In order to prevent fires and ensure the welfare and safety of building occupants, pedestrians and the public, this compliance is mandatory for residential and commercial properties alike. We recommend installing either aluminium cladding or metal cladding systems, which are stronger and more resistant to fire.

The Immediate Dangers Of Combustible Cladding

Combustible cladding is a key factor in the spread of flames. This has predominantly contributed to the destruction of multi-storey buildings in recent years. Combustible cladding installation is not only more likely to spread flame faster over longer distances but is also more susceptible to warp and catch fire at lower temperatures compared to other types of cladding. It’s because of this reason that non-compliant cladding is banned on future building works and strict removal from past projects is demanded. This breach can occur around windows, balconies, ornamental features or other external surfaces as cladding is often used in areas that may not be identified properly. Ideally, this work should be included with routine facade repairs, and building maintenance.

Other Risks In Non-compliant Cladding Installation

It is apparent that despite hiring construction services on your build, cladding for your building may not meet Australia’s safety standards as established by the Building Code. This may cause a number of problems, one significant issue being leaking cladding. Water ingress is often a little-known or rarely discussed problem that may stem from poorly installed cladding. While this issue receives little to no attention, it can inconvenience your building’s condition, resulting in soggy, deteriorating plaster and the unanticipated, unnecessary outcome of having to replace the cladding, which incurs higher costs.
