Hail Testing complete: MondoClad® Solid Aluminium Panels outperform industry recognised benchmarks

In the current climate, independent testing is extremely critical for all involved in the façade industry. Having completed testing to AS1530.1 and achieving non-combustible certification, HVG Facades continue to lead the industry having completed extensive weather and hail testing for MondoClad® solid aluminium panels

This ensures MondoClad is NCC compliant and streamlines the building approvals process providing comfort to developers, specifiers and builders on their use of façade materials.

MondoClad® has been independently tested and assess to AS4284, meeting the criteria of the FP1.4 performance requirement for weatherproofing.

In addition, MondoClad has recently been tested against hail performance. Whilst there is no Australian Standard test for hail impact on wall panels, in consultation with industry experts, HVG Facades tested to ANSI FM 4473, an internationally benchmarked test that was conducted locally in Australia.

Specific sized ice balls are projected at 32.1m/s (~ 115kph) and aimed at three impact zones, edge, corner, centre.

Our 3mm thick MondoClad performed exceptionally well and outperformed industry recognised benchmarks.

Utilising a highly corrosive resistant marine grade alloy, MondoClad is ideal for installation in the harsh Australian environment.

The superior PVDF architectural paint finish of MondoClad ensures UV stability, colour retention and a product that will stand the test of time.

Stocked locally in several colours and sizes, MondoClad also offers custom colours and sizes upon request.

A facade solution that’s designed to last.  You can’t go past MondoClad solid aluminium panels.
