Description

Supertech Weatherboard is a simple to install, fully ventilated rainscreen cladding system which has an appearance similar to that of timber but the durability and strength of cement. Made from refined cellulose fibre cement, Supertech Weatherboard has high levels of impact resistance, excellent weathering properties and outstanding levels of durability. With a minimum life expectancy of 30 years, it is a façade which will withstand the demanding test of time.


Supertech Weatherboard is lightweight, requires low maintenance, can be used in the same way as timber and allows you to create truly stunning façades.


Offering a range of colour painted finishes, Supertech Weatherboard is an attractive alternative to traditional timber boarding and plastic effect PVCu cladding. Supertech Weatherboard can be installed either horizontally in a traditional lapped style (most popular way) or in a vertically lapped style.


Used by architects, national house builders, homeowners and contractors. Supertech Weatherboard is factory finished and provides substantial design opportunities.
