Cladding Systems has been a leading industry builder throughout the cladding boom and remains a reliable and competent builder during the current combustible-cladding crisis.
Our highly qualified staff, diversified factory capabilities and experienced director allows the company to complete high-quality work on all types of projects (apartment, hospital, education campus and private residential).
With a staff of engineers, CNC programmers, architects and carpenters, as well as a director with 40 years’ experience in the construction industry, there are very few questions Cladding Systems cannot provide answers and solutions to.
We are uncompromising in the way we deliver our products and services, and we know that builders and contractors are pressed by scheduling, which is why we always execute our work with timeliness and precision.
From the early 1990s, aluminium quickly became a popular façade solution for creative architects and builders due to its wide range of colours, formability and strength. Particularly, aluminium composite panel (‘ACP’) was an attractive external façade solution because of its thermal resistance, acoustic measurements and relatively convenient mechanical properties.
Other attractions included the fact that ACP cladding in cassette only protrudes 30mm off the face of the structural wall and is much lighter and easier to cut than solid aluminium. But ACP has come under immense scrutiny due to its fire behaviour, particularly in high-rise residential developments such as the Glenfell Tower and Lacrosse Tower; two notable instances in recent years.
For a long time, the United States and Germany have used the product with extreme caution, given how flammable the polyethylene core (‘PE’) was and the danger it posed. Contrast this with the UAE, France, the UK and Australia, where cladding with combustible PE cores was unregulated and untested for much longer than fire-engineers and suppliers should have allowed. As a result, many buildings in these countries pose a fire threat to its occupants and those nearby.
Cladding Systems has been a proactive participate in multiple Australian Standard tests that include 1530.1, 1530.3 and 5113 full scale tests. We have also commissioned and tested full-scale façade elements at Ian Benny and Associates’ facility in Dandenong, Victoria; for structural and silhouette/waterproofing compliance.
We are proud to partner with BG&E and Inhabit Engineers to always deliver a cost-effective and more importantly, compliant façade design and solution.
What has the Government done?
Cladding Safety Victoria
A Victorian Government program allocated $550m to reduce the risk associated with combustible cladding on residential apartment buildings.
Victorian State-wide Audit
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Victorian Building Authority (‘VBA’) has carried out over 2,200 building inspections to determine whether an ACP cladded building possesses a fire risk to its residents/tenants.

Advice for concerned building owners
- Ask Cladding Safety Victoria for possible funding; then
- Contact Cladding Systems about rectification works.
Advice for concerned tenants
- Speak to your landlord or body corporate.
- Install smoke alarms.
- Fix/unlock emergency exits, keep hallways clear to avoid obstructing occupants needing to exit the building, and keep fire stairwells and landings clear.
- Remove ignition sources (i.e. extinguish cigarettes safely).
- Do not cover air-conditioning units with clothes or other materials.
- Keep balconies clear of clutter and material such as clothing, boxes or rubbish.
- Ensure barbecues and heaters are not used near potentially combustible material.

Pre-Finished Solid Aluminium Panels
Today’s modern aluminium panels possess key qualities that separate them from the aluminium composite panels embroiled in the current crisis.
The façade materials used by Cladding Systems are constructed from solid aluminium with a thickness of 3mm up to 5 mm and no core material. As a result, they deliver outstanding fire resistance, excellent machinability, high tensile strength and impressive hail resistance.
Both products used by Cladding Systems – Alfrex and Mondoclad – are deemed non-combustible, and are available in a range of durable, high-quality finishes and colours.

Nu Wall® is an extruded aluminium system designed & extruded in New Zealand. Over a dozen profile variants give specifiers a wide choice, from traditional weatherboard style to ultra-modern options.
Its ease of installation negates the need for any specialised contractors to install and the great advantage is that from a construction perspective no other trades (e.g. painters) are required to follow. Therefore at the completion of the Nu-Wall® installation, expensive access can immediately be de hired as the elevation is complete.
Cladding Systems is proud to be the Australian distributors of the Nu-Wall® range of architectural cladding products, suitable for high-end residential and commercial use.
Recycled aluminium uses only 1% of the energy required to produce aluminium from scratch. This makes Nu Wall® a very environmentally friendly cladding selection for your next project. To further reduce waste Nu Wall® is extruded specifically to your project requirements – on larger projects a combination of lengths can be ordered at no cost penalty.
In addition, on projects of a reasonable size, you have the option of choosing energy-efficient Cool Chemistry® powder coat finishes from Interpon® that under lab conditions have created up to a 20° C drop in substrate temperatures.
Extensive Range of Finishes
With Nu Wall® you have the ability to choose colours from the extensive Interpon® or Dulux® powder coat colour selector, from standard Colorbond® colours to pearlescent and textured options. In addition certain Nu Wall® profiles are also able to be anodised either in matt clear or a variety of coloured anodise choices.
Anodising gives the Nu Wall® system a natural metallic look displaying the natural colour variants of aluminium, a look that some specifiers strive for in their designs. Please contact us and seek advice on which profiles are suitable for the anodising finish.
Our products can and have been used on areas as diverse as entrance foyers, shop fit-outs and garage doors. As far as specialised finishes are concerned your future specifications are limited only by your imagination – speak to Cladding Systems to explore the options.
Unlike traditional cladding products on the market when you specify the Nu Wall® system your selection and mixing of finishes is limited only by your imagination. No other system gives you the versatility to combine and blend colours and finishes in the same wall and best of all no further refinishing required.
This will no longer be an issue when you use Cladding Systems products. We offer a variety of timber finishes that can be applied to all of the Nu Wall® profile range.
Although these finishes are slightly more expensive than standard powder coat or anodise finishes the long term maintenance issues faced with the specification of natural timber far outweighs the initial additional cost.
Using similar processes to the timber look a polished stone look can be applied to the Mono 200 profile allowing you to introduce a high price look at a fraction of the cost. What’s more, you don’t need specialised tradespeople to perform the installation.
Do you want to specify standing seam zinc, yet your client’s budget precludes this feature of your design? Cladding Systems, in conjunction with the development team at Nu Wall®, have come up with an all-new alternate that will allow you to achieve this look at a fraction of zinc cost. By combining the Mono 200 profile and the new standing seam ancillary your design will no longer be compromised by budget.
Cladding Systems is a well-established company that supplies Australia-wide. We have an excellent reputation in the building industry, and we stand behind all our products.
Aero 70 is suitable for either horizontal or vertical installation, and each extrusion profile has a cover of 140mm (i.e. each aerofoil is 70mm wide). The repeating aerofoil profile provides a finished appearance having a continuous surface, with inter-board joints being indistinguishable. The profile is compatible with contemporary designs; either as total cladding, or in combination with another Nu-Wall profile, or other material.
Aero 115 is suitable for either horizontal or vertical installation. The repeating aerofoil profile provides a finished appearance having a continuous surface, with inter-board joints being indistinguishable. The profile is compatible with contemporary designs; either as total cladding, or in combination with another Nu-Wall profile, or other material. Note that although the single extrusion profile is narrower overall than the Aero 70 and Aero 200, it only contains the one, larger 115mm wide aerofoil.
Aero 200 replaces the Aero 190 and is suitable for either horizontal or vertical installation. Each extrusion profile has a cover of 200mm (i.e. each aerofoil is 100mm wide). The repeating aerofoil profile provides a finished appearance having a continuous surface, with inter-board joints being indistinguishable. The profile is compatible with contemporary designs; either as total cladding, or in combination with another Nu-Wall profile, or other material.
Though one of the original Nu-Wall profiles, Classique still enjoys great popularity with those wishing to design and build a more traditionally-appearing dwelling. Typically finished in a conservative, solid powdercoat colour, this profile is difficult to distinguish from painted timber weatherboard. Nu-Wall Classique is suited to installation in a horizontal orientation. Each board has 136mm coverage.
Literally hot off the press the new Eden profile provides a negative detail to the original Mono 200 profile. Suitable for both horizontal and vertical applications, it provides a sleek, modern look. Each board has 200mm coverage.
Louvre 30 is the most textured of the Nu Wall profiles and offers a mini bevel-backed appearance. Each extrusion offers 120mm cover width. An ideal application is as feature cladding, combined with another Nu-Wall profile, or with other cladding materials in contemporary designs. Note that this profile requires a traditional fixing through the board rather than the standard clip.
Louvre 60 offers a mini bevel-backed appearance with 120mm cover width. An ideal application is as feature cladding, combined with another Nu-Wall profile, or with other cladding materials in contemporary designs.
While being essentially a bevel-back weatherboard profile, Louvre120 can also be used to stunning effect in contemporary designs when finished in colours appropriate to the application. Metallic or pearlescent powdercoats, or Natural Silver anodising can achieve these kinds of results. Each board offers 120mm of cover.
The Louvre 150 is a brand new extrusion and has been created in response to a demand for a wider louvre profile. It is a bevel-back weatherboard profile that can also be used to striking effect in contemporary designs when finished in colours appropriate to the application. Metallic or pearlescent powdercoats, or natural silver anodising can achieve these kinds of results. Coverage is 150mm.
Nu-Wall Mono 200 replaces the Mono 190 profile offers a cost-effective alternative to composite sheet aluminium products. The finished appearance of the cladding is a flat, continuous surface, broken only by the fine inter-board joint. The 200mm wide profile can be installed in either a vertical or horizontal orientation.
While having a profile fundamentally similar to the larger-format Ripple 200, this 150mm wide version has its inter-board joint designed to provide the appearance of a continuous surface. Suitable for either horizontal or vertical installation, each board has 150mm coverage.
The micro-corrugated profile of Nu-Wall Ripple200 has an expressed, visible inter-board joint; the finished appearance showing the distinctly separate cladding boards. This profile lends itself equally well to both horizontal and vertical applications. The wide 200mm cover enables speedy cladding of large areas, such as on commercial buildings. This section replaces the Ripple 190 profile and has 200mm coverage.
Shiplap is one of the original Nu-Wall profiles; installed horizontally it offers a straightforward, no-nonsense alternative to painted timber weatherboards. This profile also lends itself well to more contemporary applications; particularly when finished in a less conservative colour and installed in a vertical orientation. Each board has 150mm coverage.
Nu-Wall Ullos was designed by Bull-O’Sullivan Architecture of Auckland as a premium exterior cladding for certain significant projects of theirs. The profile was adapted to be compatible in all respects with the Nu-Wall system. This avant-garde profile is suitable for either horizontal or vertical installation. Each board has a coverage of 162mm.
Ullos 2 is a bolder version of the original Ullos, and adds striking visual texture to any building. It is suitable for commercial and domestic use and can be installed in a horizontal or vertical orientation. Each board has a coverage of 162mm. Note that this profile requires a traditional fixing through the board rather than the standard clip.
