Timber cladding is an increasingly popular choice for Australian commercial and residential buildings due to its
striking natural aesthetic, durability and low environmental impact.  Perhaps less widely known are the strong
fire-resistant qualities of timber that make it a perfect fit for fire safety in the Australian construction industry.

 

Download our latest whitepaper on Fire Performance Guide to Timber cladding and learn how the Australian Building Code Board (ABCB) recognises the many applications where timber exceeds the rigorous fire safe performance requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC) for use as internal and external wall cladding.

As the winner of Architecture & Design’s Most Trusted Brand in 2016, Weathertex places safety as a number one priority. Weathertex timber cladding has undergone extensive third-party testing to ensure compliance with the latest DtS requirements and verification methods. Weathertex products are made from a reconstituted blend of Australian native hardwoods from NSW pulp wood forestry operations. The unique process steam pulps and compresses the hardwood fibre blend into a highly dense exterior grade board product. No chemical additives are required for bonding and the final product retains the natural fire resistant properties of the Australian hardwood timbers used. While individual testing certificates are available on request, Weathertex has compiled and summarised all third party and internal quality testing results in two documents available on the our website:

1. Weathertex Certificate of Physical Properties, and
2. Weathertex NCC Compliance Summary (Residential) and (Commercial) 

Weathertex… the natural and safe alternative!
