Swisspearl fiber cement plates it's a high-quality material. It has been produced in Switzerland and Austria for over 125 years and the manufacturer does not intend to transfer production to developing countries. The material was invented in Austria and first produced and used in Switzerland. It is an excellent original quality proven by years and experience. In contrast to some domestic analogues, it is environmentally friendly and asbestos-free. Swisspearl research center is responsible for surface quality and color stabilities.
The color range is available in different collections, with the focus on the naturalness and texture features of fibrocement. It is possible to order custom color for all collections.
Taking into account the disadvantages of facing materials for both roofs and facades, Austrian engineer Ludwig Hacek invented a way to create reliable and durable plates for cladding and roofing with lightweight material. In the process of making cement plates, he suggested to add fibre binders. Due to this improvement, the material became more bend and fire resistant. In this way, the material known today as fibre cement was obtained.
Technology does not stand still. In the last more than 125 years new technological developments have been introduced, strong synthetic materials and resistant dyes have been developed, which became the basis for further development of fibrocement.
The Swiss company manufacturing panels Swisspearl has collected in its products all the latest technological developments and today is a leader in the production of fibre cement panels.
Production of fibre cement panels is based on Swisspearl production facilities with the addition of cellulose, fibreboard, binding additives and dyes to the cement.
Facade fibre cement plates are durable, lightweight and thin. Such panels have a great durability and remarkable aesthetic appearance. The color of the boards does not change in use. Fibrocement plates has exceptional fire resistance and resistance to external atmospheric influences: to abrasion of dust, sunlight, extremely high and low temperatures, as well as to precipitation.
FOR WHICH FIBRE CEMENT FACADE SLABS ARE USED
Fibrocement facade plates are used for the cladding of external facades of different buildings' height. It is also successfully used for interior decoration and are an excellent roofing material. Because fibre cement panels are fire-resistant, they are used for cladding objects with a high fire hazard level.
Taking into account the fact that fibrocement panels prevent the accumulation of static electricity, they are installed at facilities where computers and other electronic equipment are supposed to be used.
Swisspearl fibre cement panels are available in thicknesses of 8 and 12 mm and sizes 3050*1250, and 2500*1250 mm (after the calibrated edges). The panels are available in different coverages, textures and colors.
Despite their exceptional durability, fibre cement panels are lightweight and can be installed easily. For installation we use rivets and screws (depending on the substructure) or concealed mount. The type of fixing can be visible, hidden or bulk mounting.
