NEW WEATHERGROOVE ALUMINIUM JOINERS

Our popular Weathergroove panelling range comes in some of the largest available sizes in Australia (3660x1196mm) which means that the vertically grooved panel makes installation on large buildings much quicker than traditional cladding. The exclusive joining system has been designed to clip onto the rebated edges of each panel, blending in perfectly with each Weathergroove sheet for a continuous panel finish.

Weathertex’s Weathergroove joiner is currently only available in PVC, however in our efforts to continuously produce better products that look amazing, are easy to install and have longevity, we will be replacing this PVC joiner with the NEW Trimtec Aluminium Joineravailable from the 1st of March in the three Weathergroove panel sizes 3660, 2745, 2440mm.

NEW ECOWALL SIZES AVAILABLE

ExteriorBoard / HighImpact board range is rebranded as EcoWall panels to the market effectively on the 1st of March 2017. As part of this new exciting name we have also introducing 2 new sizes in the Smooth range for a greater level of customisation and more flexibility in wall panelling design.

EcoWall Woodsman and Natural have remained the same, however the Smooth we have added the 2 additional sizes.

EcoWall will continue to be the ideal choice when facing lightweight constraints with our accompanying precision accessories. It complies with the requirements set by the External Hardboard in AS/NZS 1859.4: it is a strong and robust product, yet lightweight and the large size panels make installation quick and easy.
EcoWall durability makes it the best choice for both residential and commercial, such as:
