BRANZ is an independent and impartial research, testing, consulting and information company providing services and resources for the building industry.
BRANZ Appraisals are independent assessments of building products, materials, systems or methods of design or construction. Products are assessed for Building Code compliance and fitness for purpose. For thermal insulation products, as well as evaluation and testing, BRANZ assesses technical literature, quality control, and installation.
BRANZ Appraisals are commonly accepted by approving authorities in New Zealand, Australia and some other countries as the basis for acceptance of products for use in building and construction.
NOVAtherm Ceiling Insulation (R1.8, R2.6, R2.8, R3.2, R3.6) and NOVAfloor Underfloor Insulation R1.4 have current BRANZ Appraisals.
