The ideal low maintenance, rot free alternative to traditional timber weatherboard. Fibre cement offers both contemporary and flexible design options, and is used by many architects and homeowners to create stunning facades. The simple combination of wood cellulose, sand, synthetic fibres, water and cement make fibre cement one of the most environmentally friendly and comprehensive building products available.
Hard as stone, easy as wood. The material’s multi-layered fibre structure supports the cement and other elements, which gives it impressive strength, and means that it can be far thinner than concrete.
Why use fibre cement?
Fire-resistant: Cedral products are Class 0 and EN 13501-1 fire performance classified to A2-s1, d0 which is one of the best classification ratings that can be achieved.
Low maintenance, resistant to rot and warping: Fibre cement does not rot and lasts longer than traditional materials. It does not contain any metals, so it won’t rust. Thanks to its thermal stability it will not warp or crack under high temperatures.
Stands up to the harshest weather conditions: Fibre cement is resistant to all kinds of weather, from severe frosts and torrential rain to high heat and direct sunlight. It has a minimum life expectancy of 50 years.
Light-weight building material: With the layered production and fibre matrix supporting the cement, fibre cement is thinner than concrete, but has the same performance benefits.
