Our pricing has been amended from all-inclusive to a base rate model to help ensure pricing is fair and competitive for all projects.

After reviewing our pricing approach, we are satisfied that this new base rate pricing model is equitable, accurate and puts you in a strong position when tendering.

Our Reason for Change

Our initial square metre pricing was all-inclusive and incorporated the components needed to install our Click-on systems.

This pricing model has served us and our clients well for many years, ensuring the price never changed and there were no additional surprises in cost to think about. However, with a changing market landscape and the need to be more competitive than ever, we’ve decided a change is needed.

Fairness is also another reason for change. This averaged all-inclusive approach was great for tendering, but for more straightforward or smaller projects, there may have been a disadvantage as fewer accessories were required.

We believe changing to a base rate structure will be fairer for all, highly competitive and streamlined for various project specifications.

The Base Rate Explained

Our new base-rate pricing includes the base specification of primary components needed to cover a square metre/foot area. Primary components include the main product (battens, screens or cladding), acoustic backing (if needed), track, joiners and clips.

Other components and accessories such as perimeter trims, corner clips, access hatches, end caps, back cover plates and installation tools are now priced on a project-by-project basis and are accessible on a pricelist. The pricelists are available in our Price & Spec tool.

We believe this pricing change enables increased flexibility to meet a range of project price constraints. Going forward, every component will be calculated specific to your project. You’ll be confident you’re getting the best deal that’s competitively priced.

Steps to Determining a Supply Price for Tender:

  1. Determine your base m² / f² rate on Price & Spec
  2. Estimate the m² / f² required for your project
  3. Add a wastage factor to this project quantity (detailed below)
  4. Select trims and accessories required for your project from our pricelist
  5. Total and send in Tender Price.


This calculation is based on your selection of trims and accessories from our pricelist and subject to change. We will provide a final Bill of Quantities when you are at the ordering stage to ensure costings and accessories are correct.
