To ensure relevance of the new Kompli™ tool to the construction industry we are inviting a range of manufacturers to include their products in the calculation tool. We are pleased to announce Fairview, manufacturers of tested and compliant façade products, are now available in Kompli™.
Fairview products deliver an aesthetically pleasing finish that is commonly desired in Australia by architects and designers for lightweight systems in high density residential and commercial projects. In particular, Vitracore G2 is often combined with Earthwool® insulation in systems that require non-combustible conformance; both products have been tested and successfully deemed non-combustible to AS1530.1.
Ashley How, Technical Manager at Fairview Australia said he was pleased to include Fairview products in the Kompli™ calculation tool.
“Incorporating our external cladding products with Knauf Insulation systems provides users with a comprehensive and compliant range of external wall systems, in accordance with requirements of Section J in the NCC 2019,” Ashley said.
The updates in Section J now reference AS/NZS 4859.2 and NZS 4214 which includes the impact of thermal bridging on building envelope thermal performance.
The Kompli™ calculation tool is FREE to use and complies to the newly released requirements of the National Construction Code in May 2019 (NCC 2019).
