We are pleased to announce that Eltherington has successfully passed CWCT tests with an oversized cladding panels.

CWCT is the leading test house and confirms that our rainscreen façade systems have been successfully tested in line with CWCT Standard Sequence B. This covers:

Antony Eltherington, added: “Whilst façade performance can be calculated to a certain extent, it is no substitute for an actual physical CWCT test because it replicates the most extreme conditions that buildings can be subjected to.”

CWCT ‘Standard for systemised building envelopes’ sets a benchmark for high quality building envelopes and has now been adopted by National Building Specification (NBS) and National House Building Council (NHBC). Eltherington is a member of The Centre for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT).

This is one of the reasons why they have now been adopted by National Building Specification (NBS) and National House Building Council (NHBC). 
It is always worth considering an independent CWCT test on your façade design and our specialist façade team can offer guidance on when this may be required.
