AS/NZS – Standards Australia

The wet wall test ensures the cladding itself offers a degree of protection. The wet wall test is unique among international water penetration standards and is arguably the toughest part of the test because it stresses the cladding itself. Timber Weatherboards vs Fibre Cement Weatherboards.

42284 Interview with a Green Architectural Designer: Thank you for your enquiry – one of our team will be in touch shortly. However, this is not necessarily suitable for typical low-rise residential construction, which will often include materials that do absorb water.

Get Pricing Reset Note: Wet wall test checks deflection of water The wet wall test is unique among international water penetration standards and is arguably the toughest part of the test because it stresses the cladding itself.

Comparison Different Between With AS and AS-NZS _百度文库

This will structurally load the underlay ad linings but means there is no pressure difference driving water through the cladding. Drilling holes in the outer layer of the cladding attempts to test the effect of workmanship errors, for example: Eco Wood Selection [Video].

Oil – Litres second coat to front face installed: Failure is when the cavity is breached or, in the case of the wet wall test, when water penetrates the cladding. Building a New Deck this Summer? It has more severe failure criteria It attempts to mimic less-than-perfect build quality It has the wet wall test.

Carefully Crafted Timber

Therefore extra care needs to be taken to ensure that these areas are designed and installed correctly. Total approximate weight – KG: The devil is in the detail It is important to get the surrounding details of cladding installation correct, as these are often a source of system failure.

It is important to get the surrounding details of cladding installation correct, as these are often a source of system failure. After that, the wet wall test is performed, where pressure is applied across the cladding itself rather than the whole wall. In terms of the 4Ds, the wet wall test is checking deflection of water.

The cavity is usually vented to the inside of the test chamber so the pressure inside the cavity is the same as that in the main chamber. Residential systems could have a damaging leak, but this may not manifest as water visible on the inside surfaces. Grip Tread — Up or Down? Water that penetrates the cladding must not reach the underlay.

Therefore, attempts to make the test harder simply by increasing the test pressure will not have a big effect, because the pressure across the cladding will still be close to zero. In most test situations, a cladding on a cavity will only have a very small pressure difference across it, regardless of the actual test pressure.
