Exsulite-EPS

The Exsulite Lightweight Cladding System by Dulux® AcraTex® bridges the gap between substrate and finishing systems offering a fully integrated cladding solution for suitable 1-2 storey residential construction projects.

Exsulite delivers a Total Facade System from Cladding & Components right through to the integrated weather proofing coating for total piece of mind.

Exsulite offers cavity system design for suitable 1-2 storey residential construction projects and can also be used as a remedial facade system for renovation projects with appropriate design.

The Exsulite Thermal Facade System is designed as a non-load bearing lightweight facade system to deliver a weatherproof external building envelope with a self draining cavity for moisture management whilst providing high thermal performance (R value).

The Exsulite Thermal Facade System is CodeMarkTM certified as a fully integrated building system in compliance with the BCA and is approved for use in bushfire prone areas up to BAL 291.

Integration of system design, components and installation is delivered through Dulux AcraTex Exsulite Trained & Registered Installers to ensure the build meets design specification.

Exsulite Thermal Facade Cladding provides a CodeMark Certified, weatherproof cladding and insulation system for suitable 1-2 storey residential applications.

Exsulite Thermal Facade Systems are used as light weight integrated facade systems as an alternative to traditional masonry systems in Residential construction classified as:

Residential External Walls to NCC Volume Two, Class 1 and 10 buildings with wind loads to either:

AS/NZS 1170.2
or
AS 4055 “Wind loads for housing” for Wind Classifications N2, N3, N4, N5, within the AS4055 limitations less than 8.5m in height and less than 16m in width and where the length does not exceed five times the width and roof pitch does not exceed 35 degrees, fixed to either steel or timber frames.

Exsulite Thermal Facade Cladding offers specifiers, surveyors, builders and their clients a total cladding system from wall wrap to finished wall from a single supply source protecting from the risks of mixed componentry and uncontrolled installation.

The Exsulite Thermal Facade System is CodeMarkTM certified1 as a total integrated facade system in compliance with the Building Code of Australia’s performance criteria for:

  • Structural stability and resistance – Wind actions
  • Weatherproofing
  • Rising Damp
  • Construction in Bushfire prone areas (up to BAL29)
  • Energy Efficiency – External Walls

CodeMark certification1 provides building certifiers with the confidence that the system performs against these criteria and together with an “Exsulite Certificate of Installation” from a Dulux AcraTex Exsulite Trained & Registered Installer confirms that the build meets the design specification at job completion.

Compliance to standard is relative to the Specification & Installation of the Full System as detailed in the relevant System Certification.

Certificate of Conformity

Reference

1^, 2^. Compliance to standard is relative to the Specification & Installation of the Full System as detailed in the relevant System Certification.

Exsulite Thermal Facade Systems offer high insulating performance up to R4.8 relative to specific system specification.

Thermal efficiency is optimised by the inherent insulating performance of the Exsulite panel and its placement as a continuous “outer” barrier thus reducing the impact of thermal bridging prevalent in non-insulating cladding systems where cavity insulation is placed between studs. Exsulite systems are available in 60, 75 or 100mm panel thickness (increasing R-Value with panel thickness) and with or without additional cavity batt insulation where even higher insulating performance is required.

The following Exsulite SmartRate R-Value reports are calculated in accordance with the principles outlined in the Building Code of Australia (2012) and should be read in conjunction with the nominated system design detail.

BAL-GREY

Bushfire Attack Levels

Exsulite-EPS is rated1 to BAL29 (Bushfire Attack Level 29), suitable for use in High Risk areas as defined in Australian Standard “AS 3959 : Construction of Buildings in Bushfire Prone areas”. AS 3959 divides bushfire prone areas into six bushfire attack levels (BAL), based on the severity of the building’s potential exposure to ember attack, radiant heat and direct flame contact as follows:

BAL-LOW – very low risk
BAL-12.5 – low risk
BAL-19 – moderate risk
BAL-29 – high risk
BAL-40 – very high risk
BAL-FZ – extreme risk (Flame Zone)
