A small, agile company, we are renowned for responding to customer needs with innovative solutions.
Out of an old problem and a big idea comes innovation
When John and Alex of Vanluk undertook some building inspection work they realised there was no effective, systematic solution for wall penetrations for pipes and cables in building paper. Effectiveness relied solely on the skill of the person installing them. Failure mechanisms were many, including poor workmanship, incompatible materials, improper use of sealants.
We thought “surely there must be a standard cavity flashing available somewhere.”
But worldwide there was nothing suitable available.
We produced our own cavity flashing solution, designing the MG50 made from injection moulded rubbers for basic pipes up to 40 mm in diameter.
Before long a requirement for a cavity flashing solution for larger diameter pipes and difficult shapes, such as beams penetrating through the cladding, were in demand. Vanluk responded with a product that satisfied this need. The Vanluk MG100 was born.
Ongoing development has led to the robust solutions widely accepted by the marketplace today.

Innovation leads to progress
The infinite variety of penetration inquiries presented to Vanluk prompted us to use novel manufacturing techniques, design, testing and product appraisal, and we have come up with unique solutions such as jig saw joints and escutcheon plates.
Deflection, drainage, drying and durability
The underlying principle behind our design utilises the 4d’s.
Weathertightness and peace of mind
Our cavity flashing solutions have been independently tested with various claddings and systems to E2/VM1 and AS/NZS 4284. Appraisal by a recognised Australasian corrosion expert, Les Bolton, ensured their durability.
Revolutionising the building industry in New Zealand
It is becoming less common for people to penetrate a building’s cladding and dress it with tape now that our MG50 and MG100 solutions exist. Our affordable standard cavity flashing systems give consistency of build with less complexity.
Standard or customised
Vanluk keeps a stock of circular penetrations from 4 to 160 millimetres diameter.
Vanluk can also tailor solutions for perpendicular, angled and hipped beams, channels, angle plates, scuppers, vents, louvres and balustrades etc.
