Swisspearl facade panels are large size, flat, high-density prefinished fibre cement panels, offered in an extensive range of surface finishes and colours.
Swisspearl is manufactured in Switzerland with low energy and high environmental consciousness, using locally sourced mineral raw materials. Panels are produced from cement, synthetic fibres, pulp and water, colour pigments are added to that for integrally coloured fibre cement panels.
The proprietary processes pioneered by Swisspearl with special surface finish, sealed edges and back coating ensure optimal behaviour and durability of the panels.
All Swisspearl panels are specially designed for rainscreen cladding applications with rear ventilation.
Swisspearl panels can be used with the XpressClad façade system (PX40, PX20, PX3-0), developed by Pacific Build Supply Ltd for the last 20 years.
The concept of top to bottom ventilation, minimal maintenance, fire protection and stunning negative detail look, made the partnership with Swisspearl and Pacbld an easy one.
Swisspearl can also be installed on PXS, a soffit system, and Interior Linings.
Typically 1190mm width is used. This works with 400mm & 600mm NZ stud spacings.
