Compliance and Testing:
dBlue is designed to be installed in accordance with AS/NZS 3500.2
The system complies with AS/NZS 7671 and has Watermark certification. The dBlue system has been developed under and a ISO 9001 quality management system and ISO 14001 environmental management system.
dBlue has been independently tested by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation and meets the required R + C 25 and 40 benchmarks without the need for lagging.
Comparative testing with uPVC and lagging based on using 13mm plasterboard and R1.5 insulation batts.
CSIRO is Australia’s national science agency, and is one of the largest and most diverse scientific institutions in the world with more than 50 sites throughout Australia and overseas.
Note. dBlue is not intended for exposed installations. To meet acoustic requirements in habitable areas, the system must be separated from the living space by an industry standard ceiling or wall structure.
dBlue has Certification to Australian and New Zealand Standards
