Tested & Certified Compliance for Peace of Mind
Did you miss our recent 'Tested & Certified Compliance for Peace of Mind' webinar?
With a panel of expert panelists discussing vital topics of compliance in the building industry, its a must watch!

SUPAWOOD Fire Retardant (FR) panels continue to meet all requirements for Fire Group 1, 2 and 3 for any interior area within any class of building. This is despite more stringent BCA fire-hazard regulations continually being introduced.
Our fire-resistant panels are deemed among the least combustible timber products on the market today. This means they can be used in all critical areas such as fire-isolated exits, lift car interiors, public corridors, and lobbies providing fire egress.
To maintain this standard of superiority, we are continually striving to improve. We have completed a large amount of product retesting so that we can guarantee our products comply to the new NCC2019 fire testing requirements.
“Don't compromise your design aesthetic because of acoustic needs. There is a solution for you.”
SUPAWOOD have high end architectural linings for reverberation control and optimal acoustics.
Our Summary of Acoustic Options provides you with all the information you need about our acoustic products and options. This includes full NATA certified test results, scattering coefficients and other technical documentation, all designed to help you make the right choice for your next project.
Australia does not sit across more than one tectonic plate like New Zealand does, so does not have as many severe earthquakes. However, Australia still has about 100 earthquakes per year of magnitude 3 or more. Earthquakes of magnitude 5 or more, occur on average every one to two years.
Thankfully, due to Australia’s low population density, and the fact that most of the population is clustered along the coast, we have escaped being affected too much.
However, due to the risk of a severe earthquake such as the Newcastle earthquake of 1989 that killed 13 and injured 160, earthquake codes have been developed.
Why more attention on earthquake codes recently?
The fire cladding issue recently highlighted due to Grenfell and Melbourne apartment fires, has focussed attention on compliance in general and more persons are becoming aware of just how stringent the earthquakes code AS1170.4 is.
As certification bodies and professionals are examining building documents more closely in the light of this, more documentation is being asked for.
Proving compliance with earthquake regulations is not as easy as you would expect.
Environmentally Sustainable Development (ESD) is a prerequisite for responsible architecture, so what does it mean to your project and what role do internal linings play?
The Green Star rating scheme created by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) is the benchmark being used for ever increasing numbers of Projects to measure their environmental performance.
There are 3 areas where internal linings impact on Green Star:
- Sustainable Timber
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
- Formaldehyde emissions
Supawood provide lining solutions that meet the requirements of all these areas.
