Qt Comfort

QT EcoSeries Wall Panel is a solid substrate that is fire-resistant with outstanding thermal and acoustic qualities. Designed and manufactured in Australia from Conpolcrete (a cementitious mixture containing recycled EPS) QT EcoSeries Panel is lightweight and strong, withstanding wind gust above 250k/ph.

Full Scale Approved

FACT: Very few other products, including most Deemed to satisfy products, have successfully passed the AS5113-EW Full Facade test.

What is QT?

The QT Systems EcoSeries Wall Panel is a lightweight masonry-veneer wall cladding system suitable for Type A and B construction in Australia. The wall panel offers a solid substrate that can accommodate a wide range of finishes.
