HVG Facades announces the release of their latest range of high-quality engineered aluminium facade panels in the market.  

Nucleo® is a lightweight and ultra-flat exterior panel that’s ideally suited to most building designs and constructions. With no polymer in its core, the panel is deemed-to-satisfy non-combustible as per the National Construction Code (NCC 2022). It achieves zero for ignitability and spread of fire, when tested to both AS1530.1 and AS1530.3. This excellent non-combustibility status not only provides extra peace of mind, but also helps shorten and streamline the building approval process.

“We’re excited about offering another premium, non-combustible exterior panel to the market,” HVG Facades’ general manager Stephen Dorrofield said. “Nucleo completes our already popular and comprehensive range.”

Nucleo panels are made up of an internal profiled aluminium board, bonded on either side to two skins of marine grade aluminium sheeting. The fabricated exterior combined with the core technology results in a rigid panel that’s perfectly flat, providing a high-end finish. Slender and lightweight, Nucleo allows for more efficient handling and installation while also reducing overall construction costs.

Individual flat sheets of Nucleo can be fabricated with ease using CNC routers or wall saws to produce the dimensions required of each cassette, meaning even the most complex constructions can be brought to life. And, thanks to the three-dimensional core structure’s light weight, fabrication is fast.

Nucleo is also available in a range of standard colours. Each Nucleo panel offers excellent UV stability and colour retention as its outer layers are coil-coated in a superior PVDF architectural paint finish. In addition, Nucleo is corrosion resistant, making it an ideal choice for all locations and conditions.

Nucleo comes with a 15-year warranty. Designed to survive the harsh conditions of the Australian environment, Nucleo is made to last.

Nucleo offers a sustainable cladding option. The solid aluminium panels are not only 100% environment-friendly, but the recycling process uses up to 95% less energy than that of other primary metals. This means a reduction in emissions, which, together with Nucleo’s exceptional corrosion resistance, makes it an excellent eco-friendly choice.

HVG Facades’ commitment to sustainability is one of its core business objectives. They consistently aim to minimise any negative impact they may have on the environment. All HVG Facades’ products offer long life performance, low maintenance and extreme durability, helping to reduce the overall environmental footprint of any construction where they are applied. The company is continuously looking for opportunities to support and promote long-term sustainability initiatives that have a positive impact on the environment as a whole.

Nucleo is now available nationwide through HVG Facades’ wide network of warehouses. Their team of expert industry professionals is on hand to assist with your technical and product-related enquiries.
