    Recladding, refurbishment and rectification of existing commercial buildings

    After a series of catastrophic cladding fires around the world, there has been significant cause for alarm about the safety and structural integrity of our commercial, medium and high density buildings. Free to download, Recladding, refurbishment and rectification of existing commercial buildings unpacks the multifaceted demands of compliance and the best alternatives to combustible composite panels.


    A sound decision: Acoustic solutions for HVAC and hydraulic waste systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings

    As more Australians live in medium- and high-density housing, it is important to ensure buildings and household units have appropriate levels of acoustic insulation to provide liveable and workable environments that support occupants’ health and wellbeing. This white paper examines acoustic solutions to address noise levels of HVAC and hydraulic waste systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.


    Grate Insights 2020: Innovation, aesthetics & performance

    A trend towards high-speed, low-cost development has started causing implications for sustainability. Working closely with the Australian Building Codes Boards, and investing heavily in R&D, Stormtech remain the only sustainable drainage company in Australia. Download this free digital magazine to learn more about clean energy, creating sustainable educational facilities and much more.


    Integrating security in design: A guide to specifying security screen windows and doors

    Well-designed buildings minimise opportunities for crime and contribute to perceptions of comfort and security. The challenge for Australian designers and specifiers is to identify solutions that provide peace of mind without compromising performance or aesthetics. Security screen windows and doors are up to the task, contributing to open, welcoming environments that keep occupants safe as well as happy.


    Applying the manufacturing industry's focus on automation to a window hardware system for residential and commercial application

    Australian manufacturers must leverage advanced knowledge and processes by applying the principles of factory-based automation to create innovative solutions for the building industry, such as plug and play, automated window hardware systems that offer ultimate control over airflow, temperature and ventilation. Download this whitepaper to discover how automated window hardware systems can deliver greater flexibility, simplicity and efficiency to end users.


    Engineered for success: Preventing common issues in engineered timber flooring installation

    While engineered timber floors are much less susceptible to the issues commonly found with traditional solid timber flooring, without the right preparation, skills and experience, costly issues may arise during installation. Download this whitepaper to learn how to avoid installation issues, saving your projects significant time and money and ensuring you experience all the benefits that engineered timber flooring has to offer.


    High-performance at high-speed: A specifier's guide to selecting high-speed doors

    Specifiers frequently have choices between standard roller shutters and high-speed roll doors. Both are reliable and efficient; however, they do not necessarily fulfil the same purposes. This whitepaper takes an in-depth look at the differences between standard and high-speed roller doors and provides a detailed overview of the considerations specifiers should take into account when choosing a high-performance roller door solution for their next project.


    Building design for sustainable homes & cities: The benefits of rainwater harvesting

    As water demand grows, so does the need for sustainable water services. The first step in integrated urban water management, rainwater harvesting has emerged as a feature of sustainable building design that every architect and specifier needs to understand. Download this whitepaper to see why rainwater harvesting systems are crucial to creating liveable, productive and resilient cities.


    Quiet building: Noise and vibration isolation in vibrant cities

    As building near transit corridors and above railways become viable options to relieve pressure on existing urban infrastructure, design and construction professionals need to better understand how to minimise structural vibrations that could adversely impact quality of life. Download this whitepaper to see why noise and vibration isolation are crucial elements in new building projects.


    Raising the safety floor: A guide to slip resistance in flooring specification

    Poor specification of flooring, especially unsustainable or insufficient slip resistance, is directly associated with the occurrence of fall incidents. It is imperative for architects, designers and specifiers to understand the factors that impact slip resistance and how flooring surfaces perform in real-life conditions. Download this whitepaper and see why sustainable safety flooring must be considered for demanding commercial environments and public spaces.
