CLADDING TESTING

Australia’s Foremost Flammable Cladding Identification Laboratory
The Grenfell Tower fire was the worst UK residential fire since WWII. The fire spread rapidly as a result of flammable aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding.
Since the disaster, ExcelPlas has been active in testing and identification of ACM cladding.
Thousands of ACM samples from buildings around Australia have been analysed by ExcelPlas Cladding Testing.
We are certified by the Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) for identifying flammable cladding products.
