Application

Particularly suited to both internal and external modern commercial, residential and industrial buildings, where a natural facade is needed.

Description

Complete system specification for Ceramapanel installed back to timber battens.


Ceramapanel:

A through-coloured, compressed fibre-cement facade panel, 10-mm thick, in A1 rating as required. It is both an aesthetically appealing and cost-effective cladding solution offering a natural appearance. It also has good acoustic dampening properties.

Features and benefits:

  • Achieves A1 (non-combustible).
  • Cost effective.
  • Impact resistant.
  • Proven performance in harsh environments.
  • Short lead times and fast installation timeframes.
  • Panels supplied pre-squared.
  • Long lasting.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Can be finished off-site for easy and efficient installation.
  • High strength and environmental durability.
  • Through coloured.
  • Sound dampening benefits.
  • Graffiti resistant when coated with acrylic treatment (Natural+ range).
  • Wide range of colours and finishes available.
  • 15-year warranty.
  • Also available in 8 or 12 mm thicknesses.


Durability:

The cement panel is highly durable and includes immunity to permanent water damage in both short and long-term exposure. It will not rot, burn or corrode and is unaffected by termites, air, steam, salt and sunlight. It is not adversely affected over a temperature range of -20 to +60°C.


Screw fixed to timber substructure. For screw fix using 4.8 mm diameter screws, use 4.9 mm drill bit for fixed points and 9.4 mm for sliding. Fixing should be spaced 45–70 mm from horizontal edge and 25–50 mm from vertical edge.
