Fiber-cement - durable, lightweight and eco-friendly

Cedral tiles and boards are made of fiber-cement. It is a composite material, created exclusively from natural and environmentally and health-neutral raw materials. It was invented in the late 19th century by Ludwig Hatscheck and has since become one of the most appreciated building materials. Why?

Among other things, fiber-cement is characterized by high resistance to the adverse effects of atmospheric conditions (frost, precipitation, UV radiation) or substances that have strong alkaline properties. As a result, it can be used in any latitude around the world. It is a safe, durable and non-flammable material (EURO class A2-s1, d0).

The production process of fiber -cement consists in the application of successive layers of a properly prepared mixture of materials, including sand, water, cement and cellulose fibers (providing the necessary cohesion and strength of the material). The service life of fiber-cement exceeds 50 years.

Modern and fashionable facades with Cedral tiles

Cedral small-format tiles are best known as a popular material for roofing, chimney flashing, dormers or mansards. Thanks to their small size, easy processing and extensive color range, they are increasingly used as a facade material. They can be used to cover the entire facade or only part of it, combining them with other materials, such as brick or plaster, for example. An interesting solution is also to use them on the whole building and cover both the facade and the roof of the building with them, thus emphasizing the uniform character of the block.

Cedral tiles are available in several extremely durable and beautiful colors, the most popular of which are black and graphite. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes and two surface variants: smooth and slate-textured, as well as a variant with irregular edges, which brings them even closer to the look of natural slate. Cedral tiles come with a 30-year manufacturer's warranty.

They are available in two installation variants: overlap LAP and tongue-and-groove Click. They can be installed on the facade traditionally horizontally and vertically, giving the realization a more modern character.

Cedral planks are also available in two surface variants: smooth SMOOTH and wood grain WOOD. What is very important - they are not subject to deformation or corrosion.

Cedral boards are installed in a ventilated facade system. This system consists of an inner structure and a protective rainscreen cladding to protect the house from the elements. Between the two there is a ventilation gap, allowing air to flow freely and providing excellent sound insulation, as well as moisture removal from the walls. This gives us a very energy-efficient solution that we will enjoy for many years.

Choosing Cedral materials we get an aesthetic and modern facade. Durable, virtually maintenance-free, safe fiber-cement boards and tiles will help create the most creative realization, giving it a timeless character.
