EvverLap is a non-combustible fibre cement weatherboard using cellulose fibres for additional strength and finished in a smooth face or a teak wood grain effect.

Often referred to as siding boards, weatherboarding is a traditional cladding system that historically focused on real timber. Using a fibre cement alternative gives the benefits of longevity and non-combustibility while still keeping the timeless appeal of natural wood façades.

EvverLap is less absorbent than timber weather board cladding products due to the calcium silicate and cement base used in the production process. The board is also highly resistant to rot, insect and fungal attacks.

Installation

EvverLap is light weight and easy to install using specific Vitrafix screws or rivets to either a Vitrafix VF1 or VF2 framing systems (depending on wall build-up) to give a non-combustible solution. Where required, fixings can be colour matched to the panel/plank.

For an overlapping weatherboard type and large format flat sheet installations, fixings are installed at maximum 600 mm centres aligning with the carrier frame behind. For more information, see the downloads section below.

The panels can be easily drilled and cut using standard site tools such as plunge saws, jig saws and mitre saws with fibre cement blades.  Panels can be installed to provide a horizontal or vertical lap design as required.
