Duratuff Select vinyl cladding, available in Australia from Austech
External Building Products is engineered to meet the specifications for environmental
efficiency and sustainability.
Vinyl cladding is proven to contribute significantly to global warming
than other exterior claddings, and also offers the potential to earn more
points in leading green building certification programs. Vinyl cladding also outperforms
most other exterior claddings in terms of lifecycle.
Duratuff Select vinyl cladding delivers several environmental benefits
including the ability to immediately return scrap and regrind it directly into
the manufacturing process resulting in almost zero manufacturing waste; as well
as minimal scrap produced during installation compared to other exterior
claddings, with Duratuff Select installers around Australia implementing source
reduction techniques to minimise waste.
Duratuff Select vinyl cladding is completely invested in constant
improvement through research and development. Given that sustainability is not
possible without durability, Duratuff Select offers a continuously increasing expected
service life, enabling Austech to provide a 50-year warranty on the cladding
product. Advancements are also being made in key areas such as colour retention
and impact resistance.
From an energy efficiency perspective, Duratuff Select increases the
R-value by 10-15%, leading to a decrease in the need for energy, cutting costs
and minimising carbon footprint. Sustainability is also measured by a product’s
economic performance and long service life: Duratuff Select vinyl cladding
requires no painting, staining or sealing at installation or during ongoing
Duratuff Select vinyl cladding is distributed by Austech External
Building Products across Australia.
