369-hibiscus-coast,-orewa-1

Company: ARIDON®

The only all-in-one building envelope system to solve internal moisture, weatherproofing and speed of construction issues – providing a superior, future
proofed structure.

The ARIDON® SMART WALL system is a continuous layer of interlocking, self-sealing rigid panels that wrap around the building frame, to form a weatherproof thermal shell. This shell acts as an intelligent control layer for the building – managing rain, air, vapour and heat movement through the building envelope. This concept is recognised by international experts as “The Perfect Wall” as it is the best way to minimise building envelope failure and provide a healthier, more energy efficient and sustainable building.

SUPER-INSULATED RIGID AIR BARRIERS – THE ALL-IN ONE SYSTEM TRANSFORMING THE NZ MARKET

IMG_4484 (2)

Company: ARIDON®

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.

CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER (CLT) & ARIDON® SMART WALL – THE ALTERNATIVE HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDING ENVELOPE

ARIDON-&-XLAM_1

Company: ARIDON®

OFFERING STRUCTURAL SIMPLISTICITY, ENERGY EFFICIENCY, CONDENSATION MANAGEMENT & TIME SAVINGS.

Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) is an engineered wood building system designed as an alternative to stone, masonry and concrete construction. Couple this with the ARIDON® SMART wall system on the outside and you can achieve a strong, highly energy-efficient, condensation free, wall system. Most importantly the ARIDON® SMART WALL system keeps the CLT warm and dry both during construction as well as for the life of the build.

In Germany – external continuous insulation has been the traditional solution for insulating buildings since the first energy performance regulations were introduced in 1977. In the USA more buildings are constructed each year using continuous insulation than our entire housing stock in NZ. A recent Green Building advisor article summed up the benefits perfectly: “exterior insulation keeps wood warm, keeps wood dry, reduces condensation potential, reduces thermal bridging, reduces energy losses – but most importantly increases durability.”

A recent multi-unit build in Christchurch (architecturally designed by AWArchitects), specified the two systems together. This combines the complimentary benefits of both the systems approach to building, in addition to the functional benefits of the two products.

ARIDON’s unique (and IP protected) interlocking, self-sealing joints & in-built drainage cavity acts as a moisture barrier, ensuring water that does penetrate the cladding will not infiltrate the wall framing cavity  – reducing material degradation and extending the service life of the building. Alternative exterior foam boards may provide the insulation performance, initially however, a number of these systems cannot be exposed to water/rain, as they degrade and are reliant on tapes to join the sheets- reducing thermal and weather protection. Always ask your supplier about the long term insulation performance and durability when specifying insulation.

ARIDON® SMART WALL = BUILDING WRAP + RIGID AIR BARRIER + CAVITY BATTENS + SUPERIOR INSULATION + INTERNAL MOISTURE MANAGEMENT

ARIDON® SMART WALL is the high performance building envelope for timber, steel, masonry and CLT structures. Suitable for residential or commercial builds, with no restrictions on cladding type.

Times Change – Building Design Has Evolved – Smart Systems vs. Products Are The Way Of The Future

20141031_072101_A

Company: ARIDON®

Building trends across the developed world show a move away from individual products to all-in-one quality systems. Why? Because the performance of a system is superior to the sum of the individual parts and enables better results in less time.

The systems approach is a method of design, construction, inspection and testing that accounts for the interactions of the various building components – along with factors such as site, climate and occupant behaviour. Many products on the market have strong key benefits and good track records – however, do they perform in the same manner they were designed for when mixed with less compatible products? Often not!

The ARIDON® SMART WALL system replaces multiple products, multiple layers and multiple trades with a single system. It combines global best practice “Continuous Insulation” technology with scientifically proven weatherproofing performance. Designed and tested for New Zealand conditions

The ARIDON® SMART WALL system has been tested and proven to excel in its weather proofing and insulation performance. Our technical team provide expertise and support from generic designs to bespoke design solutions. Because we control the installation of our system we know that the finished product on the wall will be exactly as the design team envisaged.

The systems approach to building significantly reduces the risk of moisture related building failure while maximising thermal performance.

Global Best Practice – ARIDON® Brings Warm Wall Technology to New Zealand

Company: ARIDON®

Can’t achieve H1 Compliance? Thinking of moving to R4 Cavity Insulation and 140 Framing – STOP !!! Now there is an internationally recognised superior solution: Continuous exterior insulation. ARIDON® SMART WALL eliminates thermal bridging and reduces the likelihood of interstitial condensation by wrapping the frame in a warm, weatherproof shell.

  • ARIDON® SMART WALL keeps the timber frame and cavity warm and dry – reducing heat loss and increasing the effective R value of the wall system. Equivalent or superior insulation performance than R4 cavity insulation – and you don’t have to move to 140 framing.
  • ARIDON® SMART WALL moves the dew point from inside the framing cavity to the exterior face of the wall, preventing mould and mildew accumulation in the wall.
  • ARIDON® SMART WALL – ONE WALL DOES IT ALL: Combines continuous insulation with an in-built drainage plane (cavity battens), self-sealing joints and a rigid air barrier (NZ3604 – exceeding Extra High wind zones), which enables excellent protection against water penetration, reduces material degradation and extends the service life of the building.

Figure 1: THESE QUEENSTOWN CLIENTS MOVED FROM 140 FRAMING & R4 CAVITY INSULATION TO ARIDON® SMART WALL – BETTER OVERALL PERFORMANCE & A MORE COST EFFECTIVE ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION

Thermal bridging through framing members reduces cavity insulation performance by typically 20% – 30% in timber and steel framing on average. In addition, with modern homes having substantial open areas, there can be significant areas of solid exterior wall with no insulation whatsoever because of the framing requirements.

The ARIDON® SMART WALL System is the only all-in one solution on the market that provides an environmental separator—keeping the outside elements out and the inside temperatures in – enabling a healthier indoor environment, that performs for the life of the building. The ARIDON® SMART WALL system is fully BRANZ appraised and replaces the need for building wrap, rigid air barriers, cavity battens, and insulation. 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 or structural questions.

How much power does the SMART WALL actually save?

An independent BRANZ energy efficiency study we commissioned identified that in a typical group builder/volume built home the replacement of the ARIDON® SMART WALL system showed “Very good reductions” in space heating requirements. Excellent benefits were seen in the case of the passive solar house examined, with the space heating energy required for comfort provision dropping by over 40% with the 80mm flat panel and nearly 50% with the ARIDON® 80mm Ribbed Panel combined with ARIDON® offcuts installed in the cavities.
