Design/Looks

Utilityclad Groove features a 9mm wide, 5mm deep ‘V’ grooved profile at 150mm centres across the board. Utilityclad Groove is not suitable as an exterior cladding where a high level of visual finish and/or compliance with NZ Building Code clause E2 is required. Recommended cladding applications include, but are not limited to: sheds and barns, farm buildings and general utility buildings. For applications such as residential and commercial cladding, which require a high level of visual finish and/or compliance with NZ Building Code clause E2, you must use Shadowclad first-grade exterior cladding.
