Utility cladding is a downgrade cladding band-sawn from exterior cladding. It is manufactured from sustainably-grown NZ plantation pine. We stock utility cladding in both groove and texture styles, and can also supply these with CCA or LOSP treatments.
Groove consists of a deep ‘V’ grooved profile across the panel, while texture has a band-sawn face profile. These are not suitable for use as exterior cladding where a high level of visual finish is required, nor can it be used in compliance with the NZ Building Code clause E2.
