Cladding Fact Sheets

R Value & Insulation

Mitten Vinyl Australia wall cladding can boost the energy efficiency of a home, and has environmental benefits in its use and manufacture. With a choice of 15mm, 20mm or 30mm polystyrene foam backing on the vinyl cladding, the home benefits from increased insulation and the range of temperature variation inside the building is greatly reduced, making it cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This will lead to significant energy cost savings and environmental benefits, including a reduction in carbon footprint and lower power consumption to control temperature inside the home. The result will be a more comfortable home and lower energy bills.

Due to its chlorine base, vinyl cladding’s chemical makeup ensures that it does not ignite quickly and is inherently flame retardant.
