AFS Walling Solutions achieves CodeMark certification
Australian walling system manufacturer AFS Walling Solutions has taken another major leap forward, with its LOGICWALL® system achieving CodeMark certification. This reinforces that the product complies with the National Construction Code and AS3600-2009 (Concrete Structures) and evidences its suitability for use in the design of a concrete structure.
“This single certificate of conformity will save architects, engineers, builders, specifiers and certifiers valuable time in ensuring LOGICWALL is fully compliant and fit for purpose – benefiting key stakeholders at every stage of a construction project,” says AFS Technical Manager Dr Adnan Malik.
AFS is a division of building products leader CSR.
Prior to receiving CodeMark Certification, users of AFS LOGICWALL had to review significant documentation, test certificates and reports to confirm it complied with the National Construction Code and AS3600-2009 (Concrete Structures) - a time consuming process.
“Achieving CodeMark certification means that individual durability, fire resistance, weatherproofing, acoustic and thermal performance test documentation is now confirmed in a single overarching, universally accepted document, which will mean considerable time savings for clients”.
“The end-to-end nature of the CodeMark certification means users can specify the LOGICWALL system with complete confidence that it complies with all relevant aspects of the National Construction Code and AS3600-2009 (Concrete Structures). The key advantage to the client is that the principle certifier must accept that the product complies with all the relevant standards.
“At AFS we have focused on designing an innovative, compliant product to meet the requirements of the building community – and this certification bolsters that.”
CodeMark is an independent building product certification scheme administered by the Australian Building Codes Board. It supports the use of new and innovative building products by providing a nationally and internationally accepted process for them to be assessed for compliance with requirements of the building codes of Australia.
