Made from advanced formulation fibre cement, it has the strength, stability and stunning looks that last. The unique tongue and groove assembly makes HardieLinea especially quick and easy to install. Its superior dimensional stability gives you the peace of mind that your facade will last.
Factory applied ColourPlus™ Technology coating – available in 10 diverse colours – with better fade resistant and low maintenance.
Made to last
With advanced seventh generation technology we’ve created the most durable HardieLinea 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
The 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 fibre cement composite that doesn’t shrink or split.

HardieLinea 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. HardieLinea 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.
See below images from independent fire tests on HardiePlank cladding and see our fire test video here.
For more information go to our page on fire resistant cladding.
1. HardiePlank® weatherboard test wall as built (design, size and test method is specified in the standard)
2. Fire underway during the 30 min test (source is a propane lance)
3. James Hardie cladding after 30 minutes exposure to fire. The carbon deposit (the organics in the paint coating flashing off) is localised and there has been no lateral spread of flame whatsoever. No significant combustion has taken place and no smoke has been produced.
4. Rear of the framework after the test – still intact. Whilst these particular tests were carried out on HardiePlank cladding, HardieLinea cladding would perform in the same way, as it is also a seventh generation fibre cement facade product.
Anne Kingdon, Homeowner
It’s such a deep, chunky board, much less fussy than standard weatherboard, and gives a really clean line and smooth finish that looks very substantial
Why build a uniform house when there are so many flexible design options? Let’s use nature as a model and play with different textures, lines and looks. James Hardie offers every possibility you dream of: choose a mix of horizontal, vertical or diagonal cladding to give your home a unique look.

What types of trim can be used with HardieLinea® cladding?

How much do I need to overlap HardieLinea® cladding?
Planks should be overlapped 30mm leaving a visible margin of 180mm.
How close to the ground can I install HardiePlank®, HardieLinea® cladding and HardiePanel® panel?
A clearance of 150 mm should be maintained between the bottom edge of the lowest layer of HardiePlank®, HardieLinea® cladding and HardiePanel® panel and any unpaved ground. This will allow for clearance when soil is back-filled against the foundations and footings and prevent the bottom plank being damaged by contact with soil and rainwater splashing up the wall.
What nailing techniques can be used to install HardieLinea® cladding?
You can use impulse or pneumatic nail guns as well as nailing by hand. Nails should be placed on the nailing line embossed on each plank and driven into the batten with the heads flush with the surface of the plank.
Can I use James Hardie® Edge Coating to repaint my HardiePlank® and HardieLinea® facade?
You can use James Hardie® Edge Coating to repaint your facade only, if you apply it according to our repainting instructions.
