More about this product

Matrix™ is an exterior cladding system from James Hardie with an expressed-joint look giving it a clean, modern feel. For panelized architectural facades, Matrix™ offers a bold industrial aesthetic. Matrix™ can be used in interior feature walls and the express joints can be painted in a dark color to accentuate the lines and shapes. The cavity construction design improves thermal properties and achieves higher R-values up to 3.3. For a bespoke designer mixed-materials look Matrix™ can be combined with other James Hardie Cladding products such as Stria and EasyLap for contrast and to accentuate design elements.
