Aluminium Weatherboards

Introducing AliClad

Performance and aesthetics combine in a contemporary aluminium cladding system. Designed in New Zealand for local conditions.

Our tough climate calls for exterior products that can perform in all weather conditions, meet the most stringent code and standards, and bring elegance and architectural integrity.

AliClad, designed by The Building Agency, is a premium aluminium weatherboard system that has had every detail and feature designed, tuned and resolved. Backed by decades of local experience and international product knowledge, AliClad offers architects, builders and developers a robust and beautifully finished product, supported on an easy-to-install fixing system engineered to perform.

Designed for large-scale commercial projects with a residential application.

Designed for:

WEATHER-TIGHTNESS: The system has been designed in line with NZBC Acceptable Solutions. It is currently being tested to be compliant with E2:VM1 and NZS4284.

STRUCTURE: The AliClad system is designed for very high wind loadings and engineered to be fixed at maximum span distances for reduced project costs.

FIRE PROTECTION: Aluminium is non-combustible under the NZBC and the support system has a limited / non-combustible wall assembly. AliClad is also currently being tested for full-scale system fire performance to BS8414.

FINISH AND AESTHETICS: Flat and matt powdercoat options, anodised-look paint finishes, sublimated woodgrains, and horizontal and vertical profile alignments achieve both classic and contemporary designs.
