Got Flammable Cladding? Join the Class Action!

IMF Bentham and William Roberts Lawyers are working together to bring viable claims for compensation on behalf of apartment owners in buildings where aluminium composite panel cladding with a combustible core comprised wholly or substantially of polyethylene (PEis installed.

This first court proceeding (Alucobond Combustible Cladding Class Action) is a product liability claim against 3A Composites GmbH and Halifax Vogel Group Pty Limited (Respondents).  The Respondents are the manufacturers of Alucobond PE cladding products.  If you have a building with Alucobond PE cladding products, you are encouraged to sign and return the Funding Agreement and the Lawyers’ Retainer to IMF (see How to participate in the Class Actions below).



The second court proceeding (Vitrabond Combustible Cladding Class Action) is a product liability claim against Fairview Architectural Pty Limited (Respondent). The respondent is the manufacturer of Vitrabond PE core cladding products. If you have a building with Vitrabond PE cladding products, you are encouraged to sign and return the Funding Agreement and the Lawyers’ Retainer to IMF (see How to Participate in the Class Actions below).

The current class actions will not necessarily be restricted to buildings with Alucobond PE and Vitrabond PE Core cladding products. Accordingly, if you have a building with PE core cladding that is not Alucobond or Vitrabond branded, you are also encouraged to sign and return the Funding Agreement and the Lawyers’ Retainer.

The law firm which is conducting the prosecution of the current class actions, William Roberts Lawyers will assess whether or not your building may be eligible to participate in one or the other of the current class actions or any possible future class action.

Registration is free and without obligation.
