meeting standards without compromising on style: A CASE STUDY – AEROSTONE MOULDS

Share this article


The new National Construction Code Vol 2 fire safety performance requirements came into effect after a 12 months transition period on the 1st May 2020.

This made Aerostone the perfect choice in architectural mouldings for this builder when they were planning their new townhouse development at Truganina in Melbourne’s west.

Due to the proximity of the decorative (and practical) hoods to the boundary line, these lightweight concrete mouldings comply where combustible materials are not permitted. Refer to NCC Vol 2 Part 3.7.1 and 3.7.2 for individual circumstances on Class 1 and 2 buildings for external walls.
Painted with Dulux Acrasand, these features give a warm, natural stone finish that enhance the look of any brick or rendered home.
Empower Construction exclusively supplies and installs Aerostone on the east coast of Australia and our teams have been trained by the Perth based manufacturer to instal their products made from CSR Hebel blocks.
The easy to manipulate 600mm lengths are either cemented to the wall with a proprietary adhesive or they are mounted on steel backing rods (as these hoods have been). The product can be shaved down or built up as required. While the bandings and hood styles in this project are elegantly simple there is a full decorative range so individual builders can create their own moulding signature on their unique range of homes.
