Group 1 Insulation
Recent changes to the National Construction Code (NCC) and the introduction of a new fire standard AS 5637 has made some previously compliant Group 1 insulation products obsolete. Give our team a call on 1300 729 639 for more information about these standards.
Group 1 Insulation – 1 May 2019 Changes
Builders and commercial developers should be alert for non-compliant soffit insulation which some companies are trying to liqudate, as they no longer meet the Group 1 Insulation standards.
Australian Standard AS 5637.1
Under this standard, soffit insulation which is installed as an exposed lining since the implementation of NCC2016 must undergo an AS ISO 9705 standard full fire test. Previously, the product could be installed and tested on either the wall or ceiling, but now it must be tested on both simultaneously.
