Central North Island: A recent comment from an ARIDON® homeowner – Another happy customer:
“Just thought I’d drop you a line and say how happy we are with our house. We have gone through the winter with no electric
blanket, one blanket + bed spread and summer sheets ( un-heard of for us ). The house is as warm as toast regular get to 26 during the day in the winter. It is also very quiet , it’s not until the door bell goes we know some-one has arrived. We have only had a hand full of fires we use the heat pump a bit but the suns heat lasts through the night .”

AUCKLAND: KAUKAPAKAPA “Thanks for that- you did a great job. The system suited the construction which had a exposed steel frame internally and the Aridon System meant there were no thermal bridges”.
– Glyn Bilkey (Architect - Kaukapakapa)
KAIKOHE: Iwi Development
I chose ARIDON® in the design phase of the project – due to its superior weatherproofing and insulation properties – particularly as it eliminated any thermal bridging with the steel frame. The ARIDON® team provided excellent service over the past six months from concept development through to installation. The system went up quickly and the team were very proactive on site to ensure the best quality result. Would highly recommend ARIDON® to others and I will certainly be using it in future developments.

PALMERSTON NORTH: Six star homestar home - the 1st in the Manawatu region
We have used ARIDON® on a couple of residential projects now and find the product great. The advantage of thermally breaking the claddings from the structure and providing the wall insulation is something that sets the product apart from the standard methods of insulating a home.
The generic details are easy to access and import into our drawings and when we had some tricky details with roof intersections and multiple claddings, the ARIDON® team were knowledgeable and offered detailed solutions to suit.
We have great confidence in the product knowing it has BRANZ testing and having learnt the process the ARIDON® team went through to get the product BRANZ appraised.
The knowledge and background of the inventor was also key when choosing to use the product. With his sound knowledge of the construction industry through his engineering background, he is able to answer all of our curly questions.
Again the ability to thermally break and provide higher than normal wall insulation value sets the product apart. The added bonus of creating a drain cavity without having to batten the wall also ticks the box for weather tightness.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the ARIDON® system to our clients or other designers / architects.
