Equitone — Fibre Cement Cladding
Description

A durable and contemporary option for exterior cladding; Every Equitone panel is a unique cement composite material that consists of cement, cellulose and mineral materials, reinforced by a visible matrix. Nothing Else.

The fibre cement material is 'through-coloured', which means the surface displays the raw, untreated texture and colour of the core 'cementious' material. The material comes in a large panel size and can be transformed into any size or shape in the workshop or on site. No matter what design options are explored, Equitone's through-coloured nature guarantees crisp, monolithic details.

SPS currently stock cladding from the Tectiva, Natura and Lines ranges — for other ranges contact SPS for specific orders

  • Equitone [tectiva] — Characterised by a sanded surface and naturally occurring hues within the material. Every tectiva panel is unique, strongly expressing the raw texture of the core enternit fibre cement material.
  • Equitone [natura] — Every panel is unique, subtly displaying the raw texture of the core Equitone fibre cement material
  • Equitone [lines] — Unique 3D shaped, facade material that plays with light and shadow. Equitone [lines] displays a linear texture that highlights the raw inner texture of the core fibre cement material. Every moment of the day, the changing angle of the daylight gives the facade material a different aspect.  Both visible and invisible fixing options exist for Equitone [lines]
