This information is suitable for use in wind regions A, B, and C (D upon request) AS 1170.2-2002 Loading Code. For wind regions C&D we will provide site-specific installation and construction advice. If you have any doubt about the wind region your wall will be in, seek advice from your local building consent authority. It is the responsibility of the owner/installer to determine the wind region, terrain category and soil conditions. The information listed here is a guide only to help ascertain these factors and gain a general understanding of the different types of wall systems we offer.

Our walls provide superb sound attenuation properties. For a full understanding of what can be achieved, please see the Sound Reduction page.

Panels can be stacked to achieve various wall heights. For example, a 1.8-metre high wall consists of 2 x 0.9-metre panels in a stack configuration.
Durability, Impact & Load Testing
Stringent quality and constant testing will ensure your wall will withstand the rigours of daily life. Our testing regime includes performing load and impact testing to conform to all major roadway authorities.
Standard Post Centre to Post Centre Guide
The table below allows you to work out what your post centres will be. For example, if you have a 2.4-metre panel, and you are using Classic posts, then you will have a 2530mm post centre to post centre measurement. If you have a 2.4-metre panel, and you are using Signature posts, then you will have a 2630mm post centre to post centre measurement.
Footing Depth Table
3.0 metre high walls may not be suitable for all regions. Please consult BelAire before the design stage so we can ascertain if additional materials are required.
