The NZ Building Code G7.2 requires adequate natural light and an awareness of the outside environment for housing, old people’s homes, and early childhood centres. In other buildings, natural light is often used to create ambience and reduce the need for artificial lighting.

All plastic sheets used with profiled metal cladding in New Zealand must comply with the structural, durability, and external moisture requirements of the New Zealand Building Code.

All plastic sheeting should comply with the AS/NZS 4256 and AS 1562.3 and should be tested in accordance with the AS/NZS 4257.
