External Wall Cladding

External Wall Cladding

Here at FireCrunch, we are your number one choice when it comes to external wall cladding building materials that are highly fire resistant AS 1530.4. We have years of experience and expertise in producing a reliable and durable building board that is not only fire resistant, but also water, sound, impact, bacteria, and termite proof. With multipurpose applications, FireCrunch external wall cladding has become the leader in Australian certified building solutions. As a modern, ultra-lightweight building board, our internal and external wall cladding can be used for residential and commercial properties and is eight to ten times stronger than plasterboard.

Our external wall cladding has been rigorously CSIRO tested to 1200⁰C and approved FRL 90/90/90. FireCrunch external wall cladding is extremely strong and will last longer than standard building boards, therefore replacement and maintenance does not become an issue. Due to its material properties, FireCrunch does not deteriorate or warp in water, all you have to do it clean, sand, and repaint it. Our external wall cladding is carbon neutral and composed of magnesium oxide, non-organic bonders and fibre mesh composites. Produced with the finest materials and is 100% recyclable, FireCrunch has the qualities of timber with no combustibility or flame out.

As a proudly owned and operated company, we are committed to environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. We produce 90% less carbon dioxide pollutants compared to cement based products and can be recut and used again if the board has been damaged, unlike plasterboard. With a diverse range of applications and can withstand a number of weather conditions, our external wall cladding is second to none. Choose FireCrunch today for all your fast fix building material needs and protect your property from unforeseen events such as fires and floods.
