Polystyrene Wall Cladding

Imagine a wall cladding that satisfies the energy rating requirements of external cladding, reduces your energy costs and protects the environment. Active Building Systems is a market leader in manufacturing innovative and sustainable building products.

Koolwall is a factory manufactured, reinforced polystyrene cladding, which is lightweight, easy to cut, has minimal installation time and satisfies the requirements as set out by the Building Code of Australia for suitable building cladding.

Koolwall, the energy smart wall cladding has revolutionised the way in which we build. It provides you with all these benefits along with the added bonus of saving you money on your existing building costs.

As the users of the koolwall external cladding system, we are proud to say that we are the only system available on the Australian market which is supplied to its customers as a full cladding system. It is for these reasons why we are the market leaders . Everything from the patented fixing system to the Ezytrim pvc render beads, the Ezycoat cement render, Ezycoat acrylic render and the Ezycoat paint are all manufactured and provided as part of the entire koolwall external cladding System.


Koolwall polystyrene cladding is backed by a 10 year warranty on every component of the system and certified by engineers. Why would you risk your family investment with anyone else?

Australian Made & Australian owned

Koolwall polystyrene cladding exhibits various beneficial properties to both the home owner and the builder. Its durable and lightweight nature ensures the builder a quicker installation. Each koolwall Panel covers 3.0 sq/m. A combination of all these benefits allows the builder to establish lock-up stage more rapidly than using conventional building materials such as concrete block & clay brick.

Thermal Resistance

Since Koolwall is the only polystyrene cladding system on the market which is wholly and solely supplied as a full entire system and is fully manufactured and supplied from the one company, you can rest assured that what you receive is what was tried and tested with no variations. You can rest assured that what you get is what we manufactured.

The following R ratings can be achieved using KOOL-WALL:

40mm KOOL-WALL *2.3 R Value

60mm KOOL-WALL *2.8 R Value

75mm KOOL-WALL *3.0 R Value

*’R’ Value refers to the thermal resistance of a building material, or assembly of building materials, where the ‘R’ Value is the reciprocal of the materials thermal conductivity. This value is the means of calculating the overall thermal resistance of a building product or system.

Fire Retardant

The safety of your investment is a major concern for both the home owner and us here. To ensure that Koolwall is suitable as a building panel we ensure that all KOOL-WALL Panels are manufactured from flame-retardant polystyrene. This allows the Koolwall panel to conform and exceed the relative BCA and Fire Hazard requirements.

Certificate of Conformity

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.
