Throughout New Zealand all timber master joiners must join the JMF to become eligible for the NZS 4211 requirements. Schlegel's wide range of quality seals are JMF approved. This is very exciting news for the future of timber windows and doors in New Zealand. Inspectors in Auckland have been instructed that if joinery is not labelled it will not meet the requirements of the standard. They are expecting tags not labels. This will roll out nationally in New Zealand.
The New Zealand Building Act 2004 and the New Zealand Building Code requires the installation of tested products for weathertightness and structural performance. Schlegel's seals are compliant; the Aquamac series for timber namely AQ21, 48, 63, 109 and Timberseal 4850 are highly applicable. Please see brochures below.
