NEW WEATHERGROOVE ALUMINIUM JOINERS
Our popular Weathergroove panelling range comes in some of the largest available sizes in Australia (3660x1196mm) which means that the vertically grooved panel makes installation on large buildings much quicker than traditional cladding. The exclusive joining system has been designed to clip onto the rebated edges of each panel, blending in perfectly with each Weathergroove sheet for a continuous panel finish.
Weathertex’s Weathergroove joiner is currently only available in PVC, however in our efforts to continuously produce better products that look amazing, are easy to install and have longevity, we will be replacing this PVC joiner with the NEW Trimtec Aluminium Joiner, available from the 1st of March in the three Weathergroove panel sizes 3660, 2745, 2440mm.

ExteriorBoard / HighImpact board range is rebranded as EcoWall panels to the market effectively on the 1st of March 2017. As part of this new exciting name we have also introducing 2 new sizes in the Smooth range for a greater level of customisation and more flexibility in wall panelling design.
