Section J of the NCC 2012 (Building Code) covers 'energy efficiency' guidelines and requirements for the various facets of buildings and dwellings.
One of the key elements of Section J covers the insulating and lining of concrete precast panels and block or brick walls, and the energy efficiency ratings of such walls have seen substantial increases in recent years as the need for abating the poor thermal properties of such substrates is realised.
Studco's innovative Slimwall product is fast becoming the popular solution for energy efficient walls that need to meet Section J. Slimwall is suitable for use with all types of wall insulation making the maximum R-values achievable for the first time with a low-cost metal building system that still retains all the adjustability factors of common constructions clips, such as Studco's popular Betafix® clip.
