Now usable in Extra High Windzones

SUMNER -Extra High Winzone test report


Codemark Certificate

NZBC compliant system for stonework 20-60mm thick. eg Schist, Bluestone veneer etc.

SUMNER® pre-cladding is fitted by Licensed Building Practicioner (LBP) and then stonework is adhered over the SUMNER Board using SUMNER adhesive by approved applicatiors. Typical installations may include chimneys, feature walls, fireplaces, columns etc.

It is mandetory to submit the CODEMARK certificate (S0.0.1) when applying for building consent. Otherwise the council office does not know you are using our compliant system.

Kindly contact our office if your answers are not on this page.


  1. Building Consent application documents

  2. CODEMARK provides streamlined 'front end' certification. Simple for council offices to approve but only if they know you are using a CODEMARKED system, and building within its intended scope. Building consent applications should include both the Certificate (S 0.0.1) and the Compliance form (S 0.0.2).
    s 0.0.1 CODEMARK Certificate of Conformity
    s 0.0.2 CODEMARK Compliance Form to identify scope

    Circling 'No' indicates work is within scope. Sign and submit the document.

    Circling 'Yes' requires identification and inclusion of architectural details for stonework outside of system scope prior to submition.
