This determination considered the compliance of a replacement façade system to an existing 5-storey building.
The facade system incorporated high-pressure laminate panels fixed to an aluminium frame creating a 50mm wide cavity between the panels and the lined timber-framed wall behind.
The authority had concerns about the facade system’s ability to perform with respect to preventing the spread of fire over the external cladding.
The determination considered the compliance of the original facade system, and as modified in response to the determination’s initial findings.
