Fire resistant cladding
Our unmatched technological innovation makes our products generations ahead in performance. James Hardie fibre cement is impact, fire, insect resistant and weather resistant. In fact, we created fibre cement to brave any European climate and have the strength to stand strong for many years.
Our fibre cement doesn’t crack, swell or warp like wood or some vinyl. In fact, our products offer up to three times more dimensional stability than wood. With its outstanding moisture resistant properties, our unique formulation doesn’t deteriorate if exposed to damp or wet conditions.
Count on the unique characteristics of fibre cement to help you complete your build perfectly. Because our boards are less brittle, there’s less breakage during the build. What’s more, clean cuts make for perfectly aligned edges and a firm fit, each and every time.
Not only are our products durable, but we’ve also made them ultra-low maintenance. Our baked-on ColourPlus™ Technology finish on cladding and trims requires no repainting and can be easily cleaned if required using only soap and water.
The elements may do nasty things to other houses, but not to yours. Our fibre cement can resist all weather conditions. Our cladding products are engineered to stand up beautifully, whatever the weather.
Our fibre cement products are made from cellulose fibre, sourced from FSC, plantation grown trees. We add only cement, sand, water and a minimum blend of additives to enhance performance. Our products are recognised as being durable, low maintenance and energy efficient. Containing only low toxicity and low volatile organic compounds and producing less dust, they also contribute to creating a healthier working environment.

The fibre cement manufacturing process produces a durable, highly workable and aesthetically pleasing product by a process that substantially reduces the curing time compared to air-cured concrete products. This means your build moves along faster, with less hold ups and complications.
