Vinyl siding has been imported from the USA and Canada and used to renovate houses in Sydney since the 1970s for the purpose of eliminating the need for painting, with limited success. It warps, fades, powders, becomes brittle, is subject to hail damage and strong winds peel it off the house walls because it is so flimsy, only 0.05-1mm thick and is only for decorative use and I reiterate with very limited success in Australia’s climate.
With Palliside weatherboard, you can have the look and charm of weatherboards without the worry and cost of maintenance, or concerns about corrosion, peeling or vermin attack. It provides UV stability and strength and with it’s cellular foam construction it is a 7mm thick weatherboard with solid colour throughout, designed and engineered for Australia’s extreme climate. It will not support combustion and can be used in bush fire zoned regions of Australia (Palliside is being used in the reconstruction of houses in the bush fired ravaged areas of Victoria). It can be used in tropical cyclone region C or terrain category 3 as defined in the wind loading code AS1170.2. Palliside has a UV protection layer designed uniquely for Australia. The anti-capillary channel when the boards are locked together prevents vermin, moisture and wind getting behind the walls. It is simply cleaned with soapy water.
Advantages of Palliside:
- will not fade
- will not powder
- is hail damage proof
- will not warp
- approved in bushfire designated areas (nil fire ignition rate)
