ARIDON SMART WALL® – Combining global best practice ‘continuous insulation’ technology with scientifically proven weatherproofing performance.
NZ Buildings nationwide have suffered severe failure through moisture penetrating through the claddings and rotting the frames. Rigid Air Barriers are the most effective way to block air flow and prevent air pressure forcing water from the outside to the interior of the building. In addition, they provide a secondary layer of protection to the buildings and speed up construction times. The rigid air barrier market is growing exponentially across New Zealand – particularly Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
ARIDON® SMART WALL wraps the exterior walls in a rigid thermal layer of interlocking, self-sealing weatherproof panels, keeping the frame warm and dry. The ARIDON® SMART Wall system combines continuous insulation with an in-built drainage plane (cavity battens), self-sealing joints and a rigid air barrier (exceeding NZ3604 – Extra High wind zones), which enables excellent protection against water penetration, reduces material degradation and extends the service life of the building.
- ARIDON® SMART WALL is the only insulated rigid air barrier on the market and is suitable for Extra High wind zones (and higher with specific design).
- ARIDON® SMART WALL’s interlocking self-sealing joints mean that each panel interlocks with its neighbour forming a continuous shell that is not reliant on tape at every joint.
- ARIDON® SMART WALL moves the dew point from inside the structural cavity to the exterior face of the wall, preventing mould and mildew accumulation in the wall.
- ARIDON® SMART WALL provides continuous insulation to keep the whole cavity and stud warm and dry – reducing heat loss and increasing the effective R value of the wall system (80mm system providing R value performance ≥ to R4 cavity insulation – without moving to140 framing)
The ARIDON® SMART WALL system is fully BRANZ appraised and replaces the need for building wrap, rigid air barriers, cavity battens, insulation and internal moisture management layers. We offer the complete system – fully installed and warrantied by ARIDON Ltd, with a team of structural engineers and draughtsman on hand to answer any technical detailing questions and provide a comprehensive suite of technical details to simplify the specification process.
Suitable for commercial and residential construction – with no restriction on claddings.
