Our company culture is built on providing a foundation of “Zero Harm”, creating a positive impact in communities, and delivering environmentally responsible innovative solutions to customers. Our durable, low maintenance and innovative products are made from natural and sustainable raw materials, delivering endless possibilities of design and aesthetics to consumers.

We created fibre cement and thanks to our extensive research and development we are now on our seventh generation of fibre cement technology. Fibre cement cladding is a durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance material that’s used on residential houses and commercial projects.

It’s a semi-rigid material that provides substantial protection, while still maintaining some flexibility. We are the world’s leading manufacturer of high-performance fibre cement products, made from cement, reinforced with cellulose fibres.  We are a trusted innovator and global industry leader, and our products enable endless possibilities for designing exceptional buildings whilst also delivering protection and long-lasting beauty.

Our latest innovation Hardie® Architectural Panel cladding makes bringing beautiful designs to life both safe and affordable. Hardie® Architectural Panel is available in two textures: Smooth Sand and Brushed Concrete. These textures will enable you to build modern, contemporary designs – specifically formulated to give you a long-lasting, low maintenance and consistent finish for years to come.

In light of recent updates to legislation and safety requirements, there are many buildings in the UK that will need to replace existing non-compliant facades with a non-combustible alternative in both the residential and commercial sectors.

In line with the Building Regulations and Approved Document B, any relevant building with a height of 11m or more must have all materials that construct an external wall with a minimum A2-s1, d0 fire classification. Hardie® Architectural Panel cladding can be used in a ventilated construction fixed to either timber frame, steel frame or masonry walls using corrosion resistant rivets or screws. Our cladding can be installed with or without insulation. With Hardie™ Blade saw blade, the panels can be easily cut to size on site.

Hardie® Architectural Panel can be used as a direct replacement for existing cladding on a range of buildings. The non-combustible A2-s1,d0 rated panel can be trusted for protection against fire and extreme weathering for many years to come, whilst providing the strength, durability and style that your clients deserve. All of our external façade products are backed by an industry leading 15-year warranty.
