Nucleo® is made with two external layers of aluminium sheeting and a profiled aluminium core bonded together to create a lightweight and ultra-flat panel.
Nucleo® is deemed non-combustible as per the National Construction Code (NCC 2022) and achieves 0 for Ignitability and spread of flame, when tested to both AS1530.1 and AS1530.3. With outer layers made from marine-grade 5000 series alloy and coil coated in a superior Duranar PVDF paint finish.
Due to the superior multi-layer paint, Nucleo panels offer excellent UV stability and colour retention.
Designed to stand the test of time as well as survive the harsh conditions of the Australian environment, Nucleo® is available nationally through our network of distribution warehouses.
Nucleo® is a perfect solution for type C construction.
Nucleo® panels are made up of an internal profiled aluminium board, bonded on either side to two outer skins of marine-grade aluminium sheeting. The fabricated exterior combined with the profiled core technology results in a rigid panel that’s perfectly flat. Each panel totals 4mm in thickness and weighs only 4.6kg/m2. Benefiting from being light weight and thin, it enables more efficient handling and installation while also contributing to lowering the overall cost of construction.
Nucleo® is deemed non-combustible, durable and can be easily routed and folded to cassettes.
With no polymer in its core, Nucleo® is deemed non-combustible and is NCC compliant (NCC2022). Its fire safety rating aids in shortening and streamlining the building approval process.
Individual flat sheets of Nucleo® can be fabricated with ease, using CNC routers or wall saws to produce the dimensions required of each cassette. Being a light weight core panel, fabrication is fast.
At HVG Façades, our commitment to sustainability is one of our core business objectives. We consistently aim to minimise any negative impact we may have on the environment.
Our products offer long life performance, are low maintenance and extremely durable, helping to reduce the overall environmental footprint of any construction they’re applied to. Nucleo® aluminium panels are not only 100% recyclable, but the recycling process of aluminium uses up to 95% less energy than that of other primary metals. This means a reduction in emissions and, together with Nucleo®’s exceptional corrosion resistance, makes it an excellent, eco-friendly choice.
When it comes to choosing partners, we seek out only ethical manufacturers with proven outstanding environmental credentials that have been achieved by adhering to strict processes and procedures. Together with our business partners, HVG Façades continuously looks for opportunities to support and promote long term sustainability initiatives that have a positive impact on the environment as a whole.
