EQUITONE [pictura] is a fiber cement facade material. EQUITONE has produced these facade panels in Europe since the 1950s under the name ETERNIT. Fibre cement is a material made of cement, cellulose and mineral materials, reinforced by a matrix. Nothing else. The EQUITONE [pictura] material comes in 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 fiber 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 fiber cement materials for interiors and furniture design. EQUITONE [pictura] comes in a large number of standard colors and special color-matched project colors.
Performance & sustainability
EQUITONE has led the development of fiber cement for over a century under different well known regional brand names such as Eternit. EQUITONE fiber 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.
