Vitrashield external cladding system is a series of AS5113 classified metal wall cladding systems offering:
- Industry-leading fire cladding performance.
- Extreme corrosion resistance.
- Excellence in long-term weathering.
- High impact resistance.
- Simple installation.
Non combustible cladding solutions
Vitrashield is the first metal cladding system in Australia to achieve an EW classification through full-scale fire testing to AS5113 regulatory requirements and is continuing to achieve further passes on a range of systems.
When combined with the system, the Vitrashield panel can help protect the building by shielding combustible elements within the wall build-up whilst still achieving a complete pass to AS5113. This ability to provide high overall wall build-up flexibility, along with maintaining the same overall look as traditional aluminium panels, is especially suited to rectification works where combustible elements may already be present.
Complete external cladding
Vitrashield cladding panels are a complete wall system, as required by the AS5113 test, from internal plasterboard to external cladding. The systems provide an essential basis for designing a safe and compliant external wall.
The Vitrashield cladding product is easily and accurately installed by using a pre-fabricated panel cassette over a top hat substructure with hidden mechanical fixings.
Not only perfect for new builds, Vitrashield is suitable for façade recladding and rectification projects, as it has a minimal impact on the wall integrity or original design – and may even enable combustible material to be left in place.
While Fairview offers a selection of building cladding panels that have already achieved EW classification to suit a variety of wall requirements, we are also able to assist with testing, engineering and assessments to achieve the safest and simplest compliant solution on an individual project basis.
