Thanks to their meticulously engineered fiber reinforcement, Cembrit boards are exceptionally thin and light in relation to their strength and have a remarkable resilience to almost all external conditions and impacts.
This remarkable lightness/strength mix enables architects, designers and engineers of all types of building structures to rewrite some of the basic equations for what’s possible in terms of the outer envelope – whether vertical, horizontal or sloped. Outdoors or indoors.
Cembrit fiber-cement products all have qualities that make them ideal for design and construction projects where great combinations of attractive appearance and lightweight, long-lasting resilience are required.
NON-COMBUSTIBLE AND FIREPROOF
All Cembrit fiber-cement products are non-combustible, and classified in accordance with the ASTM E-136 and CAN/ULC-S114 standards. It is chemically impossible for them ever to contribute to a fire.
IMPERVIOUS TO WATER
Fiber cement can absorb and release moisture for unlimited cycles without affecting the product’s durability and service life. This makes Cembrit products ideal for external surfaces, particularly single skin constructions as well as in indoor wet room installations.
In the increasingly digital world of the future, traceable product IDs will be correspondingly important for any future improvement and rebuilding work, as well as for end-of-life demolition and disposal procedures. If you can quickly and easily identify the products and components in the building you’re responsible for, or in which you work or live, it becomes easier to replace any breakages and repair any defects. All Cembrit products have traceable IDs.
