In keeping with our ongoing commitment to research and development coupled with our ongoing rigorous testing procedures we confirm the compliance of logicwall® fibre cement permanent formwork with the National Construction Code (NCC) and its suitability for use in the design of a concrete structure.
The below information details testing undertaken and performance achieved. Contact us to talk to our team of in-house design experts who can assist you with further technical advice, engineering concepts, training or guidance in relation to your specific application or project.
CodeMark® is a third-party building product certification scheme that authorises the use of new and innovative products in specified circumstances in order to facilitate compliance with Volumes One and Two of the NCC, also known as the Building Code of Australia or BCA.
A detailed CodeMark Certificate of Conformity is issued for meeting the ‘evidence of suitability’ requirements of the NCC. AFS Logicwall® has achieved CodeMark Certification confirming:
• Structural (AS3600), durability, fire resistance, non-combustibility, weatherproofing, thermal and acoustic performance
• Compliance of end-to-end process, from manufacture through to installation
• Quality control
AFS Logicwall® is deemed suitable use as a structural, load bearing reinforced concrete wall in accordance with (AS3600-2018) Concrete Structures Code.
Logicwall® has been Deemed-to-Satisfy non-combustible for both internal and external applications.
Compliance to National Construction Code (NCC)
Deemed-to-satisfy – C1.9 9(a)(b)(d)(e iv) – Non Combustible Building Element
Logicwall® is confirmed as a deemed-to-satisfy non-combustible building element covering the fibre cement formwork boards, steel stud framework, adhesive concrete and reinforcement steel bars.
