When it comes to commercial and house cladding, two of the most popular materials used are aluminium and vinyl.
Aluminium is one of the most sustainable building materials in the world and is used in a large range of applications.
Aluminium comes from bauxite ore. Australia is the largest producer of bauxite ore in the world and has the second largest bauxite reserves after the Republic of Guinea.
Bauxite is first processed to make alumina (Aluminium oxide) and Aluminium is refined from alumina.
Vinyl is one of the most popular house cladding materials used today.
Abbey’s Vinyl Cladding is superbly manufactured with long-lasting unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) resin, backed with insulation that is fire retardant and self- extinguishing.
The insulated back provides greater insulation that will improve your home’s energy efficiency and cost savings. It is manufactured tough to last and protect the exterior walls of your home.
National Construction Code (NCC) 2019 – Building Code of Australia (BCA) requires compliance for vinyl wall cladding for new constructions.
If certain vinyl wall claddings do not meet NCC 2019 test compliance in writing, they should not be used and cannot be certified and any property become difficult to sell.
Australian based NATA laboratories tests are government approved, recommended and generally accepted in OECD mutual recognition.
Tests to NCC 2019 include:-

We had the pleasure of dealing with Abbey Thermalboards in the beginning of 2018. Our introduction to the company was by a representative visiting ate our request to conduct a measure and quote. He was professional, polite and an outstanding representative for the company. We were so impressed with the quote we signed up immediately. Our cladding was a large job however it was completed without fuss by Dan despite the very hot weather. Dan completed the work by himself and did an outstanding job. We are very pleased with Dan, he was brilliant. The actual product is outstanding. We noticed an obvious change to the temperature of the house with the cladding and a change to outside noise due to the insulating properties. We are very happy with the product and service provided approaching 12 months later. I highly recommend this company.
