Ceramapanel are 8 or 12mm compressed fibre cement cladding panels finished with a natural stone or colour effect.

Cost effective to produce and easy to install cement facades are particularly suited to modern commercial, residential and industrial buildings, where a natural façade is needed. They are able to conceal common structural materials and provide sound dampening benefits.

WHAT DOES A1 AND A2 RATED MEAN?

Class A1 – Products are described as having no contribution to fire at any stage. BS EN 13501 sets several thresholds for combustion performance when tested to both EN ISO 1716 and EN ISO 1182. One of these thresholds is a maximum heat of combustion of 2MJ/kg. Typical products meeting this classification include most inorganic materials such as metal and stone.

Class A2, s3, d2 – Products are described as having no significant contribution to fire at any stage. BS EN 13501 sets several thresholds for combustion when tested to EN ISO 1182, or both EN ISO 1716 and EN 13823. One of these thresholds is a maximum heat of combustion of 3MJ/kg. A typical product meeting this classification is plasterboard.For comparison, Wood has a typical value of 15 MJ/Kg.

DURABILITY

Our cement panels are highly durable and boast; Immunity to permanent water damage in both short and long-term exposure Will not rot, burn or corrode, and is unaffected by termites, air, steam, salt and sunlight Not adversely affected over a temperature range of -20°C and +60°C The longevity of cement fibre panels can be enhanced by periodic inspection and maintenance. Inspections should examine the coatings, flashing and seals. Paint finishes should be maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Any cracked or damaged finish or seals which will allow water ingress should be repaired immediately.

COLOUR RANGE

Ceramapanel comes in two main colour ranges; the Natural range and the Natural+ range. The Natural + range is a coated finish and gives the colour a deeper, richer tone. This is an alkali- resistant varnish using a UV polymerizing system to make the sheets resistant to graffiti. This allows the panels to be cleaned more easily and maintained for many years. The Natural range resembles nature’s earth tones and has a much more natural look.
