Evoking the natural beauty of fibre cement

century, the combination of mineral materials, water, air and heat has been transforming the exteriors of buildings around the world. Due to the nature and range of the materials, fibre cement suits both modern and traditional schemes – from private commercial properties, to public centre facil- ities and is the ideal choice for both new builds and refurbishments.

F Architect’s choice

EQUITONE is a through-coloured facade material designed by and for architects. The material’s versatility provides architects with the ability to bring inspirational designs to life.

Constructing beauty

EQUITONE materials can be cut and fabricated into a variety of shapes and sizes, enabling an architect to add intricate detail to the facade and create striking patterns in the exterior design. EQUITONE’s fibre cement materials are available in a range of through colours, offering an extensive palette of subtle and inspiring shades in a variety of textures and finishes.

EQUITONE’s most recent addition to the

range, EQUITONE [materia], accentuates the beauty of fibre cement. The material encompasses the characteristics of cement whereas the fibres render its surface textured yet velvety. The ever-changing atmosphere gives the material natural subtle shade variations.

In practice

Commenting on the use of EQUITONE [tectiva] for a public-sector building Rushcliffe Arena, Ajay Chauhan, architect at CPMG said: “We’re really pleased with the overall finish of the project. EQUITONE [tectiva] was the ideal choice– it gave the aesthetic appearance we hoped for, was within budget and is fantastic quality.”
