Colour matching options are available where we can match the current façade colours or if you supply a recognised colour reference, i.e. RAL.

Ceramapanel comes in a total of 26 colours across two natural through-coloured ranges; the Natural range and the Natural+ range and is also available in a customised Painted RAL range:

The Natural range resembles nature’s earth tones and has a much more natural stone-like appearance. The Natural colour range is available in the full textured finishes, RAW, Sandblasted, Shot-Sawn, Touch, Contour Groove and Contour Lines.

The Natural+ range uses the same colours as the Natural range, however this is finished with an alkali-resistant coating using a UV polymerising system to make the sheets resistant to graffiti. This coating gives the colour a deeper, richer tone and allows the panels to be cleaned more easily and maintained for many years.

The Natural+ colour range is only available in the Textures Raw finish.

Ceramapanel offers 7 distinct finishes. Please refer below to view these finishes:


Fixing Options

To ensure the best installation is completed, we recommend the use of VitraFix framing system and accessories – use of VitraFix centralising tools will ensure that rivets are centred in the hole to allow for correct thermal movement and using the correct VitraFix nose piece adapter for the rivets will prevent over-tightening of fixings – for more information on installation accessories, contact the team at Valcan.

Secret Fix

Secret fix of Ceramapanel can be carried out on 10mm or 12mm thick panels. VitraFix VF3 brackets are installed to the back of the panel and these then locate onto the VitraFix VF3 rails.


Ceramapanel 8mm, 10mm or 12mm panels are installed back to VitraFix VF1 or VitraFix VF2 carrier system and are then secured in place using colour matched rivets.


Design & Installation

Design and installation of fibre cement cladding panels

Fibre cement cladding panels are easy to work with and provide a multitude of design options. We offer a range of natural finishes in standard colours (see technical information brochure). Our Natural colour range is the most popular choice available in 4 main finishes: 2 smooth-faced finishes, dimpled / shot-blasted and a grooved finish. These all help create a range of stone effects with natural nuances.

Design Features

Fibre cement façade panels are designed for high durability. Ceramapanel is available with colour coded rivets from the VitraFix range used for face fixing panels. Ceramapanel A1 is tested to BS EN 13501-1 for fire classification achieving A1 rating.

Construction Features

Our panels are designed to be simple to install and maintain offering a long-lasting solution. They feature visible or secret fix options and have the ability to replace individual panels easily. There are diverse prefabrication options and panels can be cut to exact dimensions for precision installation.


Edge Sealant
The Ceramapanel range (like all fibre cement cladding products) absorbs a certain amount of moisture.  On the Natural colour range the panels can ‘breathe’ through the face and rear of the boards and dry out. Ceramapanel Natural colours do not require any sealant applied to the cut/drilled edges after processing.

Ceramapanel Natural+ colours have a coating on the panels that resists graffiti, this coating also prevents moisture ingress and subsequent egress – it is important that once panels have been cut/drilled that Ceramapanel Edge Sealant is applied. 


Unique Appearance

The surface of Valcan Ceramapanel may show variations in tone, appearance and coloured spots/flecks which adds to the natural aesthetics of the material. The porosity of Valcan Ceramapanel allows the panel’s appearance to change with wet weather conditions and when dried out return to the original colour/tone. Each panel is naturally unique and it is recommended that over large projects, panels are mixed from pallets. 

Please note:- Valcan Ceramapanel is made using natural materials and as such the colours can vary between batches as well as tone variations occurring across panels within the batch, we, therefore, recommend that the whole project is placed as one order. If more material is needed for a project, please send a sample of a panel from the project, and we will aim to match as closely as possible.
