Stylish & strong fibre cement cladding
Made from advanced material fibre cement, HardiePlank® cladding is an engineered cellulose-fibre and cement composite that offers the ultimate in fire, moisture, rot and pest resistance. The unique properties of HardiePlank® cladding offers major advantages over conventional cladding materials, providing ease of installation, design flexibility and enhanced durability.
Made to last
With advanced seventh generation technology we’ve created the most durable HardiePlank® cladding ever made. Enhanced properties for unmatched durability. Our additives are chemically bonded to provide lasting resistance to rain, hail, wind, fire, rot and pests.

Best of both strength and usability
We’ve found the perfect balance between high-quality Portland cement, sand and cellulose fibre to deliver lightweight, easy-to-cut cladding that installs firm and fast.
Superior dimensional stability
Our cladding is engineered at the microscopic level to create a robust fibre cement composite that doesn’t shrink or split.
HardiePlank cladding stands strong even in the most extreme adverse events. Our weatherboards are non-combustible, achieving the highest rating possible (A2, s1-d0) for a coloured facade product. HardiePlank has been extensively fire tested under the 13501-1 suite of fire tests for CE compliance, and would not contribute to the propagation of fire.
