Compliance & Comparison of Limited Combustability Sarking We often asked to provide a vapour permeable sarking membrane that is non-combustible and vapour permeable. We are still not aware of such a product that exists in Australia. Sarking products can be used in Type A or Type B wall constructions since NCC2019 not because […]

Project Showcase: Surry Hills Village The Surry Hills Village Project is a transformative endeavor that promises to gentrify and revitalize the Surry Hills area. Spearheading the meticulous facade design is Apex Facade Design, ensuring both compliance with essential waterproofing standards and the implementation of a lightweight Empire click system instead of a traditional brick facade. […]

The 111 Eagle Street building in Brisbane is currently undergoing a significant upgrade to its exterior cladding. The project aimed to replace the old combustible cladding with a new non-combustible material, Dekton, in order to improve the building’s fire safety and meet current building codes. To support the new cladding, the building’s facade was […]

DCT Nvelope NV2 was selected to reclad the exterior façade and internal foyer of this city office building. The large format Laminam porcelain ceramic façade panels were selected, and look amazing. Our Nvelope NVF2F was also installed in some tricky areas, where no support structure was available. The NVF2F allowed for floor-to-floor spans without […]

This reclad project was meticulously executed by our friends at Goal Interiors. TTW assisted with design and NCC FP1.4 compliance. Waterproofing was achieved using our Proctor Passive Rainscreen-IT (RS-IT). The Equitone cladding was fixed using our SFS TUF-S concealed anchors on our NV3 Carrier rail. For more info one these products check out the […]

Outsulation, Insulation for cool temperate and cold climates The Cool Climate Condensation Challenge Structures in cold and cooler temperate Australian climates, such as those in Tasmania and Victoria have traditionally been poorly insulted by placing insulation exclusively on the inside of the walls, floor, and roof. This technique is a significant contributor to condensation […]

Nvelope NV1 was the framing of choice supporting the Corium brick slip façade by PGH Bricks & Pavers . The adjustability of the system made easy work of a complexities of this façade. This wall is hiding some additional smarts too. All exposed concrete, including spandrels are thermally insulated from […]

Galvanic Corrosion Galvanic Corrosion is a process of when two different metals of equal surface area are combined in the presence of an electrolyte (a fluid that conducts electricity). Hydrogen is absorbed at the cathode and a current flows, thus the less noble metal migrates into the solution (the ‘anode’ […]

Non-Combustible External Walls – Solutions for new buildings and rectification There is an increasing awareness that walls built prior to NCC 2019 are exhibiting moisture problems related to condensation. Furthermore, the thermal performance of many buildings is not meeting consumer expectations or the modelling used to design them. This is unsurprising, as earlier […]
