Why James Hardie?

Timber cladding vs fibre cement cladding
James Hardie is committed to helping you build better, more sustainable projects. As a leader in the building materials industry, our approach to sustainability extends far beyond our products and manufacturing process. While reducing the environmental impact of product manufacturing is critical, sustainable building solutions and construction involves far more than that.
This is how our environmentally friendly and sustainable processes, driven by the most advanced technologies, help us work towards a shared, sustainable future.
Our stringent standards mean only the best quality raw materials are used for JamesHardie® fibre cement products.
Our manufacturing facilities and sustainability practices are ISO 14001 accredited.
At least 75% of the raw materials used are sourced locally to our manufacturing facilities.
Our exterior products can be used to construct a BRE A+ rated facade (BRE Green Products Guide).
Raw materials – Portland cement, cellulose pulp, sand and water – are all low in toxicity.
Raw materials extracted and processed near our manufacturing facilities cut back our carbon footprint.
We embrace the newest optimisation technologies for recycling input materials and minimising energy and water usage. Once produced, our durable fibre cement materials not only impact fewer resources for replacement but help cut back maintenance and repair costs.
The anticipated life expectancy of JamesHardie® fibre cement products is over 60 years. Our ColourPlus™ Technology delivers a high-quality, consistent finish to your facade that maintains its looks and requires less repainting and maintenance.
We continue to invest in the on-going development of composite cement products recognised as being durable, low maintenance and energy efficient.
The safety of building occupants is what matters to us. That is why all our fibre cement products are non-combustible in accordance with EN 13501-1.
Our cladding is defined by excellent performance, aesthetics and design flexibility.
