Application

  • External facades.
  • Rainscreen cladding systems.
  • Roof solutions.
  • Interior design.
  • Design led buildings.
  • Soffits and fascias.

Suitable for lightweight steel frame, timber frame, modular/ offsite and concrete frame construction methods.

The panels maybe used for certain interior applications, but are not suitable as:

  • Flooring material.
  • Cladding to wet rooms like toilets, change rooms, etc.
  • Kitchen tops.
  • Surrounding to open fire places.

The panels are not suitable to be used in areas with exposure to mechanical impact, i.e. wear and tear on panel surface, including frequent cleaning procedures.

Description

BBA approved through coloured fibre cement facade panels with a smooth, opaque surface coating. Aesthetically the panel provides texture, colour and a highly effective protective layer to the building facade. The range consists of six different colour ranges, with the majority integrally coloured.

Swisspearl facades allow a wide range of possibilities for the design of façades, with an extensive selection of surface options, various types of joints and fastenings, and panel formats.

The panel provides an ecological construction material with a unique aesthetic appearance and high durability. Manufactured in Switzerland, the facades are manufactured from 95% natural raw materials from the Swiss mountains.

Rear ventilated systems can be installed regardless of weather and temperature, and are quick and easy to install.
