A new boundary wall system by James Hardie

Barwon Timber and James Hardie are proud to announce the brand new Hardie Smart Wall System with the James Hardie firewall insulation as its core product.  With James Hardie having 125 years experience in the field they are always looking for new ways to make the building industry a better, safer and easier place to be.  This product has been specially designed with the builder and client in mind.  Not only does this change the way we will be going about our building practices, it also will change the way we think when designing new housing.

The James Hardie Smart Wall System is designed for townhouses, terraces and detached buildings that are in close proximity to the boundary and bushfire zoned areas.  It is also created for common walls and semi-detached construction. One of it’s best safety features is it can be used in separating walls between occupancies in aged care buildings.

Other benefits include :  30% faster to install than alternative fire-rated plasterboard boundary wall solutions. 45% more compact than traditional brick veneer walls. Up to 18% more compact than alternative plasterboard common wall solutions. As a result the builder’s clients will enjoy a larger living space.

James Hardie Firewall insulation comes in two easy to work with sizes.  With 5 batts per pack and both coming in a length of 1160mm long and 85mm thick. They come in widths of 560mm and 420mm wide.  A pack of 560mm batts will give you a coverage of 3.6m2. The 420mm wide batt will cover 2.7m2.

Not only is this a faster installation system than what the building industry has seen in the past it is also more compact.  This is a system that is beneficial to every related party by enabling higher property values and speeding up the building process – everyone’s a winner!

The Barwon Timber showroom has the HardieSmart Boundary Wall system on display.  For more information, please contact our timber team on 03 5229 0080, e-mail us or come in and see us at 50 Fellmongers Road, Breakwater.
