Description

Cavibat Cavity Battens consist of a range of extruded fluted battens designed for use as non-structural cavity battens in cavity-based wall cladding systems. The Cavibat cavity batten is designed for use with timber framed buildings and the Cavibat R cavity batten is designed for use with steel framed buildings where a thermal break is required.

Cavibat Cavity Battens create a minimum 18 mm cavity, providing a secondary means of weather resistance by separating the cladding from the external wall framing, as well as providing an unobstructed path for any occasional ingress of water that may get past the external skin to drain to the exterior of the building.

Scope

Cavibat Cavity Battens have been appraised for use as non-structural cavity battens for use with non-structural wall cladding systems on timber framed buildings within the following scope:

  • the scope limitations of NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1, Paragraph 1.1; and,
  • with a risk score of 0-20, calculated in accordance with NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1, Table 2; and,
  • with cavity-based wall cladding systems complying with NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1 or a valid BRANZ Appraisal that specifies a nominal 20 mm (minimum 18 mm) drained and vented cavity; and,
  • situated in NZS 3604 Wind Zones up to, and including Extra High'.

The Cavibat R cavity batten has also been appraised for use as a non-structural cavity batten incorporating a thermal break for use with non-structural wall cladding systems on steel framed buildings within the following scope:

  • the scope limitations of NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1, Paragraph 1.1 with regards to building height and floor plan area; and, with a risk score of 0-20, calculated in accordance with NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1, Table 2; and,
  • with cavity-based wall cladding systems complying with NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1 or a valid BRANZ Appraisal that specifies a nominal 20 mm (minimum 18 mm) drained and vented cavity; and,
  • situated in NZS 3604 Wind Zones up to, and including 'Extra High'.

(Note: Cavibat and Cavibat R cavity battens can also be used on buildings subject to specific weathertightness design. Weathertightness design and detailing of these installations is the responsibility of the designer and is outside the scope of this Appraisal. Cavibat and Cavibat R Cavity Battens are not suitable for use where pressure equalized cavities are required.)
