Cembrit has announced the launch of a new through-coloured cladding board with a sandblasted surface, Patina Rough.
The leading fibre cement building product manufacturer has introduced the new cladding board to complement the original Patina, with its directional grain surface, to offer architects and specifiers a desirable choice of premium cladding for a wide variety of external applications.
Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager at Cembrit, comments: “The overwhelmingly positive reception Patina received from the architectural community inspired us to create Patina Rough, a design alternative with all the performance qualities of the original.”
Cembrit Patina is a genuinely through-coloured, fibre cement decorative rain screen cladding. The associated manufacturing and production methods ensure that it is genuinely hard-wearing and built to last, as the through-coloured process ensures the bumps, scratches, abrasions and other surface blemishes associated with surface coated claddings are eliminated.
“Patina Rough has a surface that achieves a natural, cast, or engineered stone cladding-type finish, but at the reduced price and structural cost that is in line with lightweight rain screen cladding,” Ged adds.
Cembrit has also incorporated a dirt resisting process in the production of Patina. Furthermore, it is designed to be installer friendly, as there is no need to seal edges or other cuts, and with Patina being through-coloured, it is much easier to handle on a construction site than surface-coated sheets.
Patina Rough is available in two popular and attractive shades, Flint and Sand. The board also has an A2 non-combustible fire rating according to EN13501, which makes it ideal for new build and over cladding rain screen applications. The sheets can be used for a range of applications, including rain screen cladding, weatherboarding, window elements, fascia, balconies and prefabricated facade elements.
