Cembrit Cover
World of colours Cembrit Cover is the ideal solution if you prefer the strongest colours and bolder design statements. The natural grey fibrecement core is completely covered by a layer of water-based acrylic paint, with 26 standard Cembrit colours and more than 2000 NCS®© colours to choose from. Cembrit facade boards are a high quality fibercement used as a part of a ventilated facade solution on all types of constructions. Cladding, Facade, Cembrit Cover

Cembrit Patina
Natural ageing Cembrit Patina has a natural, textured surface. You can see the fibre and natural characteristics of the raw materials, and you can see and feel the sanding lines on the surface. As the seasons change and the years pass, the natural ageing of the fibrecement leaves subtle traces on the surface, and the facade will gradually acquire a distinctive patina. The variations in the colours of the board will create a facade richly evocative of history and life. Cembrit facade boards are a high quality fibercement used as a part of a ventilated facade solution on all types of constructions. Cladding, Facade, Cembrit Patina

Published [15/02/17]

Cembrit Solid
World of colours The special thing about Cembrit Solid boards is that they’re the same colour all the way through. Each of the core colours is matched with a full-coverage painted surface in vibrant yet resilient colours. This means if you choose Cembrit Solid boards to provide a facade with a particular colour, every board will feature that colour on every surface and edge, and with the same colour on the edges of any cut-outs or drilled holes. Cembrit facade boards are a high quality fibercement used as a part of a ventilated facade solution on all types of constructions. Cladding, Facade, Cembrit Solid

Published [15/02/17]

Cembrit Transparent
Strength and character Cembrit Transparent facade boards combine the textured nuances and natural characteristics of the base board with a long lasting performance of the transparent top coat. The colour added to the fibre cement reveals and highlights the fibres and other raw materials that provide its strength and character. The extremely durable transparent coating then protects the board and ensures a smooth surface with a long service life. Cembrit facade boards are a high quality fibercement used as a part of a ventilated facade solution on all types of constructions. Cladding, Facade, Cembrit Transparent

Cembrit Offers New Choice for Weatherboard

June 2017

Cembrit Offers New Choice for Weatherboard

Today, the leading fibre cement building product manufacturer, Cembrit, is entering the UK market with a brand-new fibre cement weatherboard – Cembrit Plank. Extremely versatile, low in maintenance, and rot, rust, warp, crack, sun, heat, rain and fire resistant, this board is an excellent alternative to timber and plastic based alternatives. The overlapping plank is designed to look like painted timber, but will retain its attractive appearance long after alternatives have started to age. Furthermore, Cembrit Plank does not require toxic preservative treatments in the way timber weatherboarding does.

Although there are other fibre cement weatherboards available, Cembrit has responded to market demand and offers Cembrit Plank, which is warrantied for 15 years. There are 15 different colours available, which have been especially chosen for the United Kingdom. A range of white and dark grey shades match traditional building styles, while the addition of reds, pale browns and pastel green offer a more contemporary choice. In addition, the range includes a ready primed option for clients wishing to add their own choice of colour. For large enough orders, Cembrit can arrange customised colours.

The range includes a comprehensive set of colour matched accessories, including the roofline trims needed for a neat finish where façade meets the roof. Cembrit really has thought of everything to make life easy for property owners and installers.

"We have listened to our customers’ request for a wider range of colour options, dimensions and product properties. We found that the best solution to accommodate these demands was to launch our own line of planks that are designed specifically for the UK market," says UK Sales Manager, Simon Mayes. "The reason why fibre cement products are gaining ground in the UK is its amazing sturdiness combined with minimum maintenance, which is particularly the case as a substitute for wood. I am confident that fibre cement weatherboard is the ‘timber cladding’ of the future and the launch of Cembrit Plank is a natural next step in the development of our business and product selection."

Cembrit BBA Certified Slates Rise to the Challenge

May 2017

Cembrit BBA Certified Slates Rise to the Challenge

Cembrit - Inverclyde House
The flexibility, aesthetically pleasing and easy to install attributes of Cembrit Jutland fibre cement slates have been illustrated on a newly built apartment block in Poole, as the slates have provided a stunning finish to what was a challenging roof.

Inverclyde House is a newly built three storey development that consists of 18 two and three bedroom flats. Located on the south coast of England in Poole, the apartments are central to schools, hospitals and the town centre.

Bournemouth-based contractor, AST Roofing installed 7,000 600x300mm blue/black Cembrit Jutland fibre cement slates, covering approximately 450m². The roof on this project was interesting, yet challenging for the contractor, as it included a number of pitches and a turret. This unique roof demanded a high quality roofing product that would be easy to handle, install and wouldn’t require any sorting or grading.

"The roof design posed a major challenge, but we were confident that our choice in product would allow us to deliver the desired result," says Paul Stevens, Managing Director of AST Roofing. "We had to take great care in achieving a neat mitred hip detail, and Cembrit Jutland slates allowed us to do so. The consistency in quality with these slates was impressive. Not only does it mean that the product is easy to work with, but it provides a smooth finish that can’t be achieved with other roofing materials."

Jutland slates feature a smooth surface and are pre-holed, square edged and lightweight. They do not need to be graded and sorted like natural slates. These qualities combine to make them easy to handle and install and an ideal solution for a fast-track construction environment. Jutland slates are available in Graphite, Blue/Black, Russet and Autumn Brown colours.

Jutland slates are manufactured to the highest European standards using Portland cement together with a formulation of superior blended synthetic and cellulose fibres. Cembrit fibre cement slates are finished with a high quality, semi-matt acrylic coloured coating to the face and edges and a tinted, high-performance binder to the back face. The slates are manufactured in accordance with a quality assurance system to ISO 9001 and to the requirements of BS EN 492:2012 product specification for fibre cement slates and their fittings. Jutland slates have been awarded the BBA Certificate No. 03/4041.

Cembrit A/A+- rated fibre cement slates can contribute to achieving an environmentally outstanding building. The five variations (Jutland, Zeeland, Westerland, Moorland and Diamond) allow designers to achieve the highest ratings for roof specifications and are currently the only fibre cement slate certificated.
