Orange Board®

Our Innovative Cladding System

The Orange Board® System has been specifically designed as a complete system to provide architects, builders and specifiers with a fully compliant EIFS cladding system that can be specified with confidence. The Orange Board® insulated cladding system is the smart choice for building professionals and owner builders. See design ideas here in our photo gallery.

Orange Board® is also rated and valued for providing the following advantages:

  • Excellent thermal insulation leading to ease of meeting 6 star requirements.
  • Cyclonic wind load resistance for residential building constructions in regions A through to D and up to category C4.
  • Use of fire retarded expanded polystyrene which reduces the chance of accidental ignition.
  • Energy efficiency leading to saving up to 50 times its production energy over the life of the building.
  • Flexible and economical design options
  • Full compliance with Australian Standards
  • Save up to 30% in construction time
  • Reduce water usage
  • Reduce scaffolding cost

Orange Board® is manufactured from RMAX Isolite®, a closed cell EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) material. EPS is resilient, lightweight rigid cellular plastic designed specifically for external cladding with exceptional thermal insulation – it provides very good wall insulation.

  • Orange Board® EPS does not contain fluorocarbons: no CFC’s, no HFC’s or HFC’s
  • Orange Board® has a remarkable strength to weight ratio. Composed of cells within spheres, – Orange Board® is actually 98% air, making it extremely easy, light and safe to transport, handle, cut to shape and fit. It also bonds easily to most materials using suitable adhesives.
  • Orange Board® is odourless and non-irritant. Water absorption is low, yet Orange Board® breathes: no vapour dams.

If you have a specific R rating in mind for insulation, you can achieve it by specifying a custom thickness for your RMAX Orange Board®.

Australian designed
and made
The RMAX Orange Board® System is designed and manufactured in Australia for Australian conditions providing builders easy access to product and short lead times for delivery.
A complete, fully
compliant system
The RMAX Orange Board® System comprises board, primer, render, mesh and fixing accessories specifically designed to complement each other at every stage of construction.
Lightweight, easy to install The lightweight, rigid construction of RMAX Orange Board® enables it to be easily transported, unloaded and maneuvered onto any building site, contributing to fast construction times and reduced construction costs. Sheets can be easily carried by one person.
Strength Tested and exceeds the requirements of BCA P2.1 – Wind Action and P2.2.2 – Weather Proofing. The unique qualities of RMAX Orange Board® allow it to be easily cut without loss of strength.
Design versatility RMAX Orange Board® can be used on a wide spectrum of building styles where excellent thermal qualities are required.
It is ideally suited where weight and insulation are important such as second floor installations.
RMAX Orange Board® is suitable for straight and curved applications.
Environmentally friendly RMAX Orange Board® is made from RMAX Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), one of the most environmentally friendly products on earth.
It is non toxic and odourless, biologically inert and contains no HCFCs.
Energy efficient RMAX Orange Board® is energy efficient through its excellent thermal insulation performance. It provides energy cost savings for home owners.
Excellent thermal insulation The thermal capabilities of RMAX Orange Board® assists designers and builders to achieve a high energy rating throughout the life of the building.
Cost effective RMAX Orange Board® clads and insulates in the one operation. The large panels can quickly cover large external surfaces, leaving internal cavities free to enable easy installation of services.
Ease and speed
of installation
Large panels (up to 5000 x 1200mm) can quickly cover the exterior walls. The durable textured surface needs no preparation prior to render.
Fire retardant RMAX Orange Board® contains a fire retardant additive to reduce the likelihood of fire (It self-extinguishes when the source of the flame is removed).
Australia wide sales
and service
RMAX Orange Board® is manufactured by RMAX, Australia’s largest producer of EPS, with offices in all states. Experienced staff are available to advise and answer queries.
Moisture and rot resistant The RMAX Orange Board® System meets the requirements of BCA P2.2.2 – Weather Proofing. RMAX Orange Board® has excellent resistance to moisture absorption in water. Due to its closed cell structure, moisture gain has limited effect on thermal resistance values.
