Building board specialist, Euroform, has launched a new range of highly aesthetic and low maintenance solutions for use in rainscreen cladding applications. Available with immediate effect, WeatherClad® provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional timber and PVCu planks, with the additional advantage of a range of stocked colours, no minimum order quantities and ‘just in time’ deliveries to coordinate with site programmes.
As a fibre cement board, WeatherClad® is 100 percent free from asbestos yet provides Euroclass A2 fire performance. Requiring virtually no maintenance over time, WeatherClad is resistant to the destructive effects of the UK weather.
Commenting on the new product launch, John Taylor, Technical Director, Euroform, said, “We’re increasingly finding that designers are looking to specify low maintenance solutions which also facilitate the creation of striking building exteriors. Ordinarily, products which meet these criteria come with long lead times or large minimum order quantities. With WeatherClad, we’re looking to buck this trend, by making a robust and aesthetically pleasing cladding product more readily accessible. So, no minimum quantities, a range of stocked colours and a lead time from just 7 – 10 days for coated-to-order planks.”
Designed to support flexibility in building envelope design, WeatherClad® is offered in a wide range of colour choices from our own bespoke range plus BS4800, RAL Classic, RAL Design and the Natural Colour System Bank, with a colour matching service also available.
Supplied as a wood grained effect plank, where the exterior cladding is intended to achieve a traditional timber finish, WeatherClad can also be coated in seven different stains.
