Weather Plank/WeatherPro 3d-Panel
WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D panel is autoclaved fibre cement reinforced calcium silicate board (alias named as fibre cement board). This fibre cement board is eco-friendly endorsed by third party accreditation bodies for green building label.
WeatherPlank® & WeatherPro® 3D panel are fibre reinforced cement boards with embossed texture for both internal & external use. It has very high levels of durable performance in the presence of wet and severe weather. The fibre cement reinforced calcium silicate matrix allows the board with good flexural strength and resistance to impact. It is easy to curve, cut and fix. Typical applications include:
- Acoustic, water and impact resistant stone-like cladding
- Acoustic, water and impact resistant wood-like wall planking
- Aesthetic curved constructions
- Casings for building services
- Composite wall panels
- Sunscreens, eaves and roof sarking boards
WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D panel is autoclaved fibre cement reinforced calcium silicate board (alias named as fibre cement board). This fibre cement board is eco-friendly endorsed by third party accreditation bodies for green building label. It does not contain any harmful substances or inorganic fibres and is free from formaldehyde and toxic emissions. The board has very high levels of durable performance in the presence of wet and severe weather.
WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D Panel intentionally designed for applications where impact resistance is required in high humid environment. It offers strong technical specification, having CE marked in compliance with durability and aging tests EN 12467: Category A sheet which is for applications where may be subjected to heat, moisture and severe frost weathering conditions. In addition, it also meets the standard of Australia AS/NZS 2908.2 and America ASTM C 1185 for external fibre cement products. WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D Panel is non-combustible in terms of Reaction to Fire EN 13501-1 Euro Class A1 and BS 476: Part 4, as well as approval in Australia.
Economical and versatile functions make WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D Panel requiring minimal or free maintenance. Unlike other planks and panels made of timber or vinyl. It is light-weight, robust and water resistant. It will not warp, swell or decay in wet area. This board can be applied in direct weathering applications when used in conjunction with external grade paint finishes. It can hold paint finishes 3-4 times longer than the timber or vinyl.
WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D Panel is produced from a mixture of cement, ground sand, special cellulose fibres and selected fillers to impart durability, toughness, and water resistance. Aesthetic natural texture is pressed on the board. It is then cured by autoclaving process whereby the ingredients are transformed to crystalline structure under the effects of super-heated steam and high pressure. The synthetic cement silicate binder provides exceptional dimensional stability and an unrivalled resistance to movement due to effects of moisture or heat. The board will not rot or support fungal growth and is unaffected by sunlight and steam. It will not degrade with time and within normal applications, the life of the product is limited only by the durability of the supporting structure and materials used in fastening.
The board does not contain any soluble ingredients or free alkali which could be dissolved by moisture or condensation and causing unsightly marks or efflorescence. If exposed to moisture, the board will completely recover on drying out, with no permanent loss of strength. Any staining on the board caused by leakage can be easily painted over. WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D Panel is natural off white in colour and has wood-like or stone-like finish on one side and a slightly textured reverse.
WeatherPlank® / WeatherPro® 3D Panel is manufactured to Quality Management System Certification ISO 9001, Environmental Management System Certification ISO 14001, Hong Kong Green Label as well as Singapore Green Label.
