Swisspearl fiber cement plates it's a high-quality material. It has been produced in Switzerland and Austria for over 100 years and the manufacturer does not intend to transfer production to developing countries. In contrast to domestic analogues, it is environmentally friendly and asbestos-free. Swisspearl research center is responsible for surface quality and color stabilities, which is comparable in area of production.
The color range is represented by seven collections, with the focus on the naturalness and beauty of fibrocement. It is possible to order custom color for almost any collection.
Once the building has been constructed, there is a need for facades to be finished with plaster, facade cladding with finishing bricks, siding or facade slabs. Plaster is not a very reliable material and is relatively quickly destroyed by environmental factors. Facing plates are more resistant to external influences. They are made of cement, polymers and other materials, but can be deformed under the influence of temperature differences, their color becomes faded with time. Cement cladding panels are strong, but fragile.
Taking into account the disadvantages of facing materials for both facades and interiors, Austrian engineer Ludwig Hacek invented a way to create reliable and durable plates for cladding and roofing. In the process of making cement plates, he suggested to add fibre binders. Due to this refinement, the material became more resistant to bending tension and got excellent refractory qualities. In this way, the material known today as fibre cement was obtained.
Technology does not stand still. In the last more than 100 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 over time. Fibrocement siding 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 slabs are used for the cladding of external facades of buildings up to 75 meters high. They are 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 from 8 to 12 mm and sizes 3050*1250 and 2500*1250 mm. The panels are available in a variety of textures and colors.
Despite their exceptional durability, fibre cement panels are lightweight and can be installed easily. Special fasteners, rivets and screws are used for their installation. The type of fixing can be visible, hidden as well as overlapping.
