We are proud to announce that Nuralite has obtained CodeMark Certification for its torch on Nuraply 3PM system.

The Past:

Historically torch on membranes have been treated as “alternative solutions” to compliance with E2. Often they have been a sticking point when proving compliance for building consent. …! 

The Present:

As New Zealand’s number one expert on torch on membranes, we take our responsibility very seriously. Our top reputation depends on us making sure our products and systems not only perform impeccably but that they fully comply with the New Zealand Building Code.

Obtaining CodeMark certification for the torch on Nuraply 3PM system means compliance is easily proved.  Councils must accept our torch on Nuraply 3PM system provided the product is designed and used within the scope of the CodeMark certificate. CodeMark certification is administered by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and is the pinnacle certification for building products in New Zealand.

The question is, practically speaking, what does this mean for the designers and specifiers?  

Within the scope of the Nuraply 3PM Installation Manual deisgners and specifiers may:

  • Have 1:40 (1.5o) falls on plywood substrates, supported by nogs and rafters at 600mm centres with 17mm ply for roofs, and 21mm ply for decks. This is a lower slope than E2/AS1 and saves money on framing timber and labour
  • Have 1:60 (1o) falls on a concrete substrate – a slope that is half the E2/AS1 roof slope. The slope may be formed with a screed or using Enertherm tapered PIR boards for a quick and lightweight system.

Specifiers can now have confidence that with double layer Nuraply 3PM, the waterproofing system they choose has the highest available level of compliance with the New Zealand Building Code.
