EQUITONE [Natura] is a fibre cement facade material. EQUITONE has produced these facade panels in Europe since the 1950´s under the name ETERNIT. Fibre cement is a material made of cement, cellulose and mineral materials, reinforced by a clearly visible matrix. Nothing else. The EQUITONE [natura] material combines the visible fibre matrix texture with a smooth, matt surface finish.
EQUITONE materials come in a maximum panel size of 10´x 4´ (3100x1250mm) and can be easily transformed in any shape or size to suit the desired façade modulation. EQUITONE fibre cement materials can be perforated, printed or sanded. Fixing methods include riveting, screwing, gluing and invisible mechanical fixing on metal or wood supporting frames. Creative architects and designers have also uncorporated EQUITONE fibre cement materials for interiors and furniture design. EQUITONE [natura] comes in a large number of through coloured variants, ranging from a cream white (N154) to a deep anthracite (N251).
Performance & sustainability
EQUITONE has led the development of fibre cement for over a century under different well known regional brand names such as Eternit. EQUITONE fibre cement is non-combustible (EURO A2) and has a life expectancy well exceeding 50 years. Rainscreen facades constructed with EQUITONE are thin and lightweight, yet extremely durable, causing minimum depletion of energy and raw materials.
