All roof, architectural panels, and wall cladding types manufactured by No.1 Roofing & Building Supplies are tested and fully certified to the new AS 1562.1:2018 standard.
This gives you real peace of mind for your next building project.
You need to know about some important changes to the building standards covering roof and wall claddings.
The revised standard is known as AS 1562.1:2018 Design and Installation of Sheet Roof and Wall Cladding – Metal. It replaces AS 1562.1—1992.
Compliance with the new standard is mandatory for all new building projects. It’s part of a constant drive to improve the durability and weather tightness of homes in Australia.
AS 1562.1—2018 provides updated detail on best practice design and installation techniques for metal roofing and wall cladding.
Most of the new changes relate to engineering specifics such as material quality and fastening techniques, and testing standards.
The revised standard also covers important load bearing aspects such as frictional drag in wind, and material behaviour under snow loadings and it is applicable to both cyclone and non-cyclone regions
Although the NCC (National Code of Construction) adheres to a 3-year cycle of updates, revision of specific standards is a constant ongoing process.
This latest iteration of AS 1562.1 is one of a number of recently revised standards that have become part of the building code.
These changes are now an essential part of any design and installation work for new or refurbished buildings.
It’s vital that architects and designers are conversant with the new standards and that they ensure that all cladding types chosen meet these new requirements.
Failure to stipulate the required products and structural and engineering features may lead to costly delays through the Council approval process and necessitate expensive design and installation changes / rectification.
These types of delays can quickly blow out budgets and hold up other essential processes within a build.
This increases stress levels and costs for all involved and creates considerable customer dissatisfaction.
You can avoid these unnecessary complications by working with a supplier who provides only certified and approved cladding types in line with AS 1562.1:2018.
The revised AS 1562.1:2018 Design and Installation of Sheet Roof and Wall Cladding – Metal standard is essential reading for all people involved with the supply, design and construction of metal roof and wall cladding.
