EQUITONE [tectiva] 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 mineral composite material made of cement, cellulose and mineral materials, reinforced by a visible matrix. Nothing else. The surface is not treated, showing the raw texture of the base material.
EQUITONE materials come in a maximum panel size of 3100x1250mm and can be easily transformed in any shape 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 incorporated EQUITONE fibre cement materials for interiors and furniture design. EQUITONE [tectiva] comes in 6 through coloured variants, ranging from a bright white (TE90) to a deep anthracite (TE80).
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.
