Fibre cement sheet is used in both domestic and commercial applications and is a composite material made up of sand, cement and cellulose fibers. This product is highly flexible and extremely strong, and can be molded to any shape, size or form. Fibre cement cladding is most commonly seen in sheet form, and in horizontal boards.
Fibre cement sheets are used commonly in both domestic and commercial buildings. Fibre cement is a composite material which is known for its strength and versatility. It can be moulded to almost any shape, size or form but is most commonly seen in either sheet form or in horizontal boards.
The latest fibre cement products have been developed to be fire and moisture resistant, as well as rot resistant.
Fibre cement is often specified because of its versatility in terms of form and ability to be painted any colour. The modern fibre cement material is generally very easy to clean and requires little maintenance over its lifetime.
In residential settings, fibre cement cladding is now a popular alternative to timber weatherboards, chosen for its durability and lack of maintenance. Many boards and panels can be installed either horizontally or vertically, allowing for a greater level of design freedom and an option for replicating products like vertical cedar cladding.
In many cases, fibre cement boards and sheets have a smooth finish but can be textured with a roll-on finish once installed on site to create a more dynamic effect. Most fibre cement products can be painted in any colour, including all the darker shades.
Due to its engineered makeup, residential fibre cement cladding can be a good choice for harsh climatic environments and coastal settings where other materials may degrade over time.
In multi-unit dwellings, and often in commercial buildings, fibre cement cladding products are specified in many forms but are often used in sheet form to create monolithic facades. They are popular because of the lack of required maintenance over time and the freedom of design they afford in terms of being able to be moulded to any required shape or size.
