Eliminate Risk With Cladding Replacement & Installation

Are your high-risk cladding panels presenting serious concerns for your building? While often neglected, high-risk cladding poses a large risk for combustion 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 two storeys and over in height must replace all non-compliant external wall cladding. 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.

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 builds and calls for strict removal from older pre-existing structures are 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.
