Meets International Standards
With over 50 years of experience, the AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturer’s Association) is regarded as the standards leader for finishes on architectural aluminium. Dulux Duralloy is formulated to meet: AAMA 2603 as well as Australian standard AS 3715. For more information visit aamanet.org
Duralloy is ideal for interior projects on steel and aluminium that are within exterior class 1 & 10 residential buildings of the building code and non-habitable projects.
Non-Habitable projects are those that are not dwelling types. Examples can be furniture, bus shelters, signage etc. • Residential properties are typically easy to maintain, given their height and access. • High-rise projects are less sheltered from neighbouring buildings, raising their exposure and reducing their ease of maintenance. • Monumental projects attract the most attention and have the highest standards required to uphold the reputation expected from landmark sites.
