    MetecnoKasset®: The revolutionary new insulated facade system

    Leading Australian manufacturer of thermal building solutions and lightweight architectural systems, Metecno PIR, has launched MetecnoKasset®, a revolutionary new panelling system for builders and developers. 

    MetecnoKasset® is a complete system that provides the following benefits:

    • Tested to AS 5113 – External wall and Fire Spread requirements
    • Manufactured in Australia
    • New level of fire protection
    • New level of thermal properties
    • Prefab sections delivered direct to site
    • Slot into place and secure
    • Build, clad and insulate all in one
    • Lightweight and easy to install (installed up to 50% faster than traditional systems)
    • No need for perimeter scaffolding. Installed over the handrails or behind the screens

    With its rigorous testing, MetecnoKasset® sets the new safety benchmark for use particularly on high-rise apartments.

    The new insulated system can be used as a curtain wall system while installed from inside the building and offers a range of improved thermal properties. The system evolved from a need for safer working conditions for local builders and cost-saving measures for developers which can then be passed on to end users.

    MetecnoKasset® provides an easy to install and a more affordable alternative to tilt panels, and its narrow wall profile gives more floor space than traditional concrete tilt ups. 

    The system also offers a major reduction in dead loads on the floor and ceiling, reducing the impact and weight on lower floors and the building as a whole.

    MetecnoKasset®’s other accreditations and testing includes: 

    • AS/NZS 4284:2008 Building Façade Testing (Structural SLS, Air Infiltration, Water Penetration, Structural ULS)
    • Acoustic assessments Rw 25-37 depending on system
    • Registered Design and Regulation 1507: Certificate of Compliance
    • Testing & Engineering in Australia by Ian Bennie & Associates & Inhabit Group
    • Suitable for low and high rise buildings (wind rated up to 250m)

    MetecnoKasset®, which is a part of Metecno PIR Products and Systems range, Infinite, is now available in extensive colours and finishes for any existing and new building development.
