Vitradual sets a new standard in coating compliance


Vitradual, an AS4284 tested coating product from Fairview, meets your durability, durability and compliance goals in coating rectification projects.

From a design perspective, the facade and cladding system is one of the most important aspects of a building. Facades are necessary to manage condensation, protect the building from the weather, resist the spread of fire and have a significant impact on energy efficiency. However, despite its critical role, facade and cladding design as well as specification and installation have been subject to various compliance issues in Australia.

With an increasing emphasis on building resilience, builders, engineers and architects are now – more than ever – expected to deliver a building that is not only visually appealing and consistent with design intent, but more importantly again, compliant, more durable and performing as it should. , and is more resistant to environmental conditions.

Tested to AS4284

Vitradual is tested to Australian Standards AS4284 for high performance, energy efficiency and minimal maintenance.

When exploring compliant coating options, the existence of an AS4284 test report is generally considered sufficient. However, this is not the case. It is important to review the test report and ensure that the details and pressures are relevant to the project. Each building will have a working wind load pressure and an ultimate wind load pressure, which must be known in order to determine if a particular product can be used on a specific building.

Fairview provides AS4284 tested siding products demonstrating proven performance, energy efficiency and minimal maintenance – products designed for the future. These test results demonstrate industry leading performance and are readily available for analysis of usable and ultimate wind load pressures.

Deemed non-combustible per AS1530.1 and AS1530.3

Besides appearance, technical details such as durability, thermal insulation and fire protection are important considerations for today’s architects and specifiers when selecting a design product. coating.

Manufactured from 100% recyclable solid 3mm aluminium, Vitradual is one of the few large format cladding panels that are deemed non-combustible when tested to AS1530.1 and AS1530.3.

Fully NCC compliant system

The NCC referenced standard for actions on buildings AS/NZ 1170 series provides guidelines for determining appropriate loads on building components. Typically, a design life of 50 years is the basis for structural design.

The design capacity of Vitradual and its supports and fixings, shall be determined in accordance with this design life using verification method BV1.

The Vitradual cladding system is fully NCC compliant and backed by a minimum 15 year direct manufacturer’s warranty, giving you ultimate peace of mind for your next project.

A coating process that delivers optimum consistency, quality finish and performance

With innovation at the heart of everything it does, Fairview is continually looking for ways to improve its product line and bring new and unique features to market. The latest is a natural copper faced Vitradual panel. Using innovative technology as part of the manufacturing process, a thin layer of natural copper is fused to a layer of aluminum without the use of adhesive, obtaining a 3mm sheet like the traditional Vitradual product.

Rather than a painted surface, Fairview can provide an economical, flat and rigid natural copper finish without having to use large amounts of copper (2.7mm aluminum and 0.3mm copper).

The Vitradual range also offers the following finishes:

  • Repel – A self-cleaning surface coating
  • Antistatic surface coating (exceptionally low outgassing) – Designed for IT industries
  • Antibacterial coating – to meet food handling and storage requirements
  • VitraART – for individual design and imaging

As part of Fairview’s commitment to quality assurance and quality control, Vitradual’s continuous (roll-to-roll) coating method using only Kynar 500 or FEVE PVDF paints, continues to prove its worth. for superior quality, continuous performance and color integrity.

Fairview is renowned for absolute compliance across its extensive product line, with a product for every facade rectification requirement.
