Equitone Fibre cement is a mineral composite material with outstanding aesthetic and physical properties designed as cladding by and for architects. Manufactured in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Germany and Belgium, Equitone is a natural composite material that proudly shows its authentic personality.
Made from cement, cellulose and mineral materials, Equitone ensures every panel is unique with an individual fibre cement texture. Equitone facade materials are through-coloured with a raw, unfinished character which allows for the inner texture and colour to be also displayed on the surface and means there is no ongoing maintenance required. Equitone panels are produced in large sheets which are thin yet have exceptional physical and performance properties. With a life expectancy exceeding 50 years, Equitone is highly durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions and temperatures.
Equitone is an environmentally conscientious product as well, with extensive EPD documentation, and a supply model which at its core embraces the sustainable philosophy of creating recyclable and dynamic materials. Equitone is a reusable material which can be repurposed into numerous construction elements after its serviceable life or requirement as an architectural cladding has expired.
No matter what facade design options are explored, the through-coloured materials can be transformed into crisp, monolithic facade details. The material is highly transformable, to allow for further design flexibility. It can be perforated using waterjet or CNC machines, large or very small cuts can be made, it can even be embossed and printed. Some designers favour Equitone as an internal treatment, using it in soffits, green walls and signage, and some have even adapted it into furniture.
