Cembrit Plank

Looks like wood but without the rot and fire risk

Cembrit Plank is the ideal alternative to timber weatherboarding but does not require preservative treatment and is not susceptible to fire. Smooth or textured options give you the choice of a surface finish together with a colour to make your projects almost unique. It can be installed like timber weatherboard products. Cembrit Plank comes in 14 standard and 5 made to order factory painted surfaces, as well as a ready-primed option for onsite finishing. The typical long service life of fibre cement gives maximum resistance to exterior exposure that is backed by a Cembrit 15-year warranty – the highest warranty in the market. Plank can be installed vertically, horizontally or in other patterns to enhance your design.
