Why Is It Necessary to Remove Some Existing Cladding Products?

In response to the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in London, the WA government ordered a state-wide cladding audit that would include all high-risk, high-rise buildings with Aluminium Composite Cladding attached. The Task force in charge of the audit has identified several buildings that have been either renovated or built after 2000 that may be at risk.

With the release of NCC2019 on the 1st of May 2019 changes to the BCA mean that traditional ACP with any core that contains a combustible Organic Polymer, no longer meet the Performance Requirements to be used on class A and B building under the Deemed to Satisfy routes AS1530.1 and AS1530.3. However, they can be used in a Performance Solution where they have been tested and meet the criteria as set out in AS5113, provided they are installed in the exact manner as they were tested.

Insurance Council of Australia & ACP Cladding

Although this provides some degree of clarification for new builds it doesn’t provide much comfort for building owners that have properties constructed under previous versions of the BCA. Other than the obvious safety obligation, one of the largest driving forces for Recladding projects has been the increase in insurance premiums for building that have a ACP cladding with a percentage above 8% organic polymer core.

The Insurance Council of Australia has published their own interpretation of the risk associated with ACP Cladding in different scenarios.  They suggest that in some cases where a quantity of 8-29% organic polymer ACP is used with a close to Non-combustible insulation and sarking compliant to AS1530.2 the risk should be considered low and where an ACP core does not contain an Organic Polymer is used the risk can be considered Low, regardless of quantity, ignition and type of insulation.
