  • Rigorous quality control and testing meet and exceed the most stringent standards at all stages of manufacturing
  • Skilled and experienced quality control staffs are the guardians of our standards and reputation
  • Every facet of manufacturing and operation is continuously monitored
  • Finished products are subjected to extensive quality tests in quality control laboratories for colour consistency, physical properties and product specifications.

Cladding Wholesale is not prepared to sacrifice quality for low-grade products.

Our Commitment to Compliance

National Construction Code (NCC) 2019 – Building Code of Australia (BCA) requires compliance for vinyl wall cladding for new constructions.

If any vinyl wall claddings do not meet NCC 2019 test compliance ‘in writing’, they should not be used and cannot be certified and any property becomes difficult to sell.

Australian based NATA laboratories tests are government approved, recommended and generally accepted in OECD mutual recognition.

Successful Tests to NCC 2019 include:-

  • NCC 2019 Fire Tests – BAL rating
  • NCC 2019 Weatherproofing tests
  • NCC 2019 Cyclic wind loading tests
  • NCC 2019 Accelerated weathering, colourfastness and dimensional stability
  • NCC 2019 Thermal insulation

Colonial Vinyl Wall Cladding extensively tested under NCC 2019 can be found at www.claddingwholesale.com.au/cladding-range/
