Boost your knowledge of safe cladding with BLUECHIP
‘Cladding crisis’ is a term that has unfortunately become all too familiar in the Australian construction lexicon. High profile domestic cladding fires like Neo200 and Lacrosse, combined with the tragedy at Grenfell turned a laser-like focus onto the widespread use of flammable Aluminium Composite Panel cladding in Australia.
Now, years on from the initial alarm being raised, it’s estimated that anywhere between 200 and 2,000 Australian buildings are still clad with flammable ACP. There are huge amounts of rectification works required to bring those buildings up to code - at an estimated cost of $40bn.
There is widespread confusion as each state is now implementing its own version of regulatory reform and operating with different definitions of what does or does not require rectification.
Aluminium cladding has become synonymous with flammability - but the fact of the matter is only certain aluminium products are flammable. So which are which?
Join us at Cladding Products and the Pathways to Fire Safety Compliance at this year’s CPD Live event. Presented by BLUECHIP, this session will dive deep into one of the most controversial issues in the history of Australian construction to make sure you’re up to speed with the latest developments.
Discover what material properties affect the flammability of aluminium cladding and how you can ensure anything you specify is safe, non-flammable, and compliant. Learn about considerations like waterproofing, durability, sustainability and thermal transfer, and how to identify the right products for your particular application.
The session is worth 1 CPD point and will vastly increase your technical competencies around aluminium cladding products while contextualising them within the wider industry. Given the current climate, cladding safety will remain an important issue within the industry for many years to come, so boosting your knowledge now is time well spent!
