Cembrit Patina ‘A’ fire rated facade panels exhibit the natural characteristics of fibre cement. The boards have the appearance of concrete but with the textural delicacy of fibre cement.

Each board is different and their visual appearance is bought to life as the weather and lighting conditions change, offering the facade a dynamic visual appeal. Over time, the boards will patinate, giving the facade a characterful, natural look. The result is a virtually maintenance-free facade with exceptional durability that develops character and grace with age.

Features and benefits:

  • Made from natural materials: Cement, mineral fillers and water, to which organic fibres are added.
  • Hydrophobized surface provides strong dirt, stain and water-repellent properties, as well as their resistance to all kinds of weather conditions: frost and thaw, heat and extreme rainfall.
  • Homogeneous facade board: As an uncoated genuine material it is closer in appearance to natural and monolithic facade boards than those with applied surface coatings, but has the benefit of fibre cement’s low weight to area ratio.
  • No surface coating: Minor damage is less visible than on coated facade boards.
  • Ease of handling, workability and simplicity and speed of installation reduces construction times and construction costs.
  • Strong, versatile and cost-effective.
  • Autoclaved cladding: cut edges do not need to be sealed as air cured claddings do, reducing time on site or at the fabricators cutting facility, especially for more complicated facades.
