MEGABOARD fibre cement sheeting has undertaken a significant testing regime including acoustic, bend and deflection, thermal transmission and a range of other testing. All test results have been submitted for review and have been evaluated by FMG Engineering who provides consultancy advice. They have provided a Certificate of Compliance on MEGABOARD for External Cladding. MEGABOARD Technical.
MEGABOARD complies with AS/NZ 2908.2
||MEGABOARD™ is non-flammable and conforms to AS 1530.2 – Methods for fire tests on building materials, components and structures Part 2: Test for flammability or materials. Being a non-combustible material MEGABOARD complies with AS3959 with construction in bushfire prone areas to BAL 40. excellent fire resistance property In case of fire, the board will not burn or give off poisonous smoke.
||Due to low thermal conductivity (0.1721), MEGABOARD has good performances for non-transfer of heat or cold external to internal with 20mm board having a thermal resistance 0.2 m2K/W
||The product can be exposed to moist environment. The board still keeps intact after being soaked in water for one month. It does not swell or warp out of shape.
