A BRANZ Product Technical Statement (PTS) is an abstract or summary of an associated BRANZ Appraisal. Please note that it must be read and utilized in conjunction with this source document. It provides a brief description of the product, scope of use and applicable clauses of the New Zealand Building Code. A BRANZ PTS should not be used as the basis for consent applications. Always refer to the supporting verification documentation, which is detailed within the BRANZ PTS.
