Introducing AliClad Max

Performance and aesthetics combine in a contemporary aluminium cladding system. Designed in  New Zealand for local conditions.

Our tough climate calls for exterior products that can perform in all weather conditions, meet the most stringent code and standards, and bring elegance and architectural integrity.

AliClad Max, designed by The Building Agency, is a premium aluminium weatherboard system that has had every detail and feature designed, tuned and resolved. Backed by decades of local experience and international product knowledge, AliClad Max offers architects, builders and developers a robust and beautifully finished product, supported on an easy-to-install fixing system engineered to perform.

Designed for large-scale commercial projects with a residential application.

Designed for:

WEATHER-TIGHTNESS: The system has been designed in line with NZBC. It has been tested to be compliant with AS/NZS4284. STRUCTURE: The AliClad Max system is designed for very high wind loadings and engineered to be fixed at maximum span distances for reduced project costs. FIRE PROTECTION: Aluminium is non-combustible under the NZBC and the support system has a limited / non-combustible wall assembly and has been tested for full-scale system fire performance to BS8414-2:2015+A1:2017 (BR135 Annex B 2013). FINISH AND AESTHETICS: Flat and matt powdercoat options, anodised-look paint finishes, sublimated woodgrains, and horizontal and vertical profile alignments achieve both classic and contemporary designs. Compatible with most cladding systems.
