Why Nu-Wall

Whether your home is contemporary, mid-century or traditional, Nu-Wall cladding helps to make it a superior, easy-to-live-with structure in every way. Desirable aesthetics, immense durability, proven weathertightness and low maintenance – you get them all. Plus there’s the reassurance of rock-solid warranty support, because Nu-Wall is designed and manufactured in New Zealand.

Unquestionably weathertight

Nu-Wall’s performance has been tested and appraised by BRANZ. Every one of our house cladding options has been found to exceed the quality standards and requirements of the New Zealand building code. Water can’t get in or around Nu-Wall, because it offers the rain an impermeable surface. There’s simply no place for moisture to go.

Easy to live with

Not only is Nu-Wall a high-quality metal wall cladding choice, it’s superbly easy to maintain. All that is required is an occasional wash down. Factory-applied powder coat finishes are guaranteed for up to 20 years. If you ever want to change the colour of a building clad with Nu-Wall, no problem. After thorough clean and light sand, Nu-Wall can be painted with an ordinary acrylic polyurethane coating.

Made to last

Nu-Wall aluminium cladding is guaranteed for 100 years, and we’re confident it will last even longer. It performs brilliantly in New Zealand’s harshest locations, including geothermal, alpine and coastal environments. Nu-Wall won’t rot, corrode or warp. And it’s light, so there will be less strain on foundations and other structural features.

Aesthetically advanced

The vertical and horizontal Nu-Wall profiles you’ll see in our gallery have been designed with input from respected New Zealand architects and construction engineers. Some profiles are innately practical, so that they can replace traditional weatherboard systems. Others are all about style and appearances; this is especially true of our vertical range. Because we’re a true New Zealand product that’s designed and made locally, we can develop unique products that bring your vision to life. Many of our most popular profiles began life as a customisation project!

Environmentally responsible

Nu-Wall is an ecologically responsible product, with over 80% of our material composed of recycled aluminium. Aluminium is the second most abundant metal in the earth’s crust and the recycling process only uses a fraction of the energy that is required to extrude new aluminium. Therefore, Nu-Wall is CEMARS certified, with a carbon footprint that is 90% better than the global average.

As aluminium is a very light metal, the total mass of Nu-Wall required to clad a building is fractional compared to many other products such as fibre cement weatherboard.

The coating finish of Nu-Wall also offers several ecological advantages over other cladding solutions. Our finishes are applied in a controlled factory environment, therefore, avoiding the contamination issues that arise when paint finishes are applied on site. Additionally, the maintenance of Nu-Wall is limited to washing only - avoiding the painting cycles other cladding solutions require.

After a guaranteed life-time of over a 100 years, Nu-Wall cladding can easily be removed and fully recycled.
