Koolwall, Modern Building Made Easy

Are you looking for the next generation of building materials to make your building project faster, easier, safer, lower cost and more environmentally friendly?

Koolwall is paving the way for modern Australian builders with the innovative reinforced polystyrene wall cladding, and is an all Australian owned company. Because of this, Koolwall is made for our climates and is designed to be a highly energy efficient, remarkably strong cladding system. Perfect for our Aussie building conditions and environment.

While Koolwall is super strong, it’s also remarkably lightweight making it easy to transport and cut, part of the reason installation times are faster with Koolwall than with more traditional materials.

The full benefits of Koolwall explain why this modern Australian building material is growing exponentially in popularity, and is here to stay.

Koolwall is Australian owned

Imagine being able to say that your stunning new home was built with the latest Australian designed building materials. In fact, we're proud to say that Koolwall is asystem available on the Australian market which is supplied to its customers as a full warranted cladding system.

Everything from the Koolwall patented fixing system to the Ezytrim PVC render beads, the Ezycoat cement render, Ezycoat acrylic render and the Ezycoat membrane paint are all manufactured by us and provided as part of the entire Koolwall Australian made external cladding System.

Koolwall is cost-effective luxury

You've likely driven past numerous luxury homes around Australia that are built using the Koolwall cladding system.

But did you know that Koolwall polystyrene cladding can be significantly cheaper than traditional materials for a new home build?

And it's not only the aesthetics, Koolwall stands for quality. Quality in its manufacturing process and ability to stand the test of time in our harshest of Australian environments. That's why Koolwall cladding is backed by a full 10-year warranty. You'd be hard-pressed to find a higher quality Australian made building material for your next home or commercial premises.

Koolwall is energy efficient

Koolwall is remarkably energy efficient because it's a reinforced polystyrene cladding, not too dissimilar to the materials used in cool rooms, cold goods transport trucks and large food factories where heat transfer needs to be kept at a minimum. Heat or cold kept in, or out.

Now Australia architects, designers and builders are turning to Koolwall for residential homes in place of your traditional brick and mortar building materials. Consider brick homes in Australia and their inefficiencies. Brick absorbs heat all day long and therefore requires air-conditioning all night long. Wood homes like old Queenslanders are even less efficient when it comes to insulation, often requiring huge amounts of energy to heat or cool throughout the year. Koolwall is simply the next generation when it comes to insulated cladding.

Koolwall Certificate

CodeMark Certification

CodeMark is a building product certification scheme developed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), in consultation with the New Zealand Department of Building and Housing, State and Territory Governments, Industry Groups and prospective Certifications Bodies.

This Trans-Tasman scheme will enable the pooling of resources and expertise and increase the access to both markets for product manufacturers who are producing quality products that are manufactured &conform to a standard.

The CodeMark mark of conformity provides mandatory acceptance by building control authorities / Building certifiers. It gives these professionals peace of mind and security that the product the builder has used meets Australian standards and more importantly Building standards that are set by the Building Codes Board of Australia.

The Koolwall Panel System & Ezycoat Render-Texture_Paint was the first system of its kind to achieve this accreditation. For many years the the Koolwall Panel System carried the then highest and most respected certification of its kind via the CSIRO appraisal system. Its ongoing quality and repeated use in the industry by professional builders has resulted in its CODE MARK Accreditation.


In order to ensure that what is specified by the designer is maintained right through to completion of the project your Building designer should ensure that the Builder on the project provides a form 15 from the supplier of the Koolwall Panel System & a Form 16 from the Installer.Blank

Form 15 & Form 16 are available in the Koolwall Downloads for your referral or from the Department of Housing web site or follow the link under Forms from the Queensland Building & Construction Commission (Qbcc) Web site

This will provide peace of mind to the Building Designer, Building Certifier, Builder & home Owner, that everything you have chosen conforms to Australian Building Code Standards and no nasty surprises will raise their head at a later stage.

With over 30 years experience in the building industry, Active Building Systems continues to research and develop new building materials to produce the highest quality building products available for Australian house construction.
