xs Oil – Litres second coat to front face installed: The devil is in the detail It is important to get the surrounding details of cladding installation correct, as these are often a source of system failure. It has more severe failure criteria It attempts to mimic less-than-perfect build quality It has the wet wall test.

Carefully Crafted Timber

Therefore extra care needs to be taken to ensure that these areas are designed and installed correctly.

Drilling holes in the outer layer of the cladding attempts to test the effect of workmanship errors, for example: In terms of the 4Ds, the wet wall test is checking deflection of water.

Wet wall test checks deflection of 424 The wet wall test is unique among international water penetration standards and is arguably the toughest part of the test because it stresses the cladding itself.
