Facades/ Cement board cladding/ Reinforced cement
Swisspearl ventilated facade panels are fabricated using Portland cement reinforced with polyvinyl alcohol fibres, with pigment and cellulose fibre additives.
They are fabricated in large formats which, once rectified on all four edges, can be cut to the required size. Standard dimensions are 3040/2500 x 1220 mm, with thicknesses from 8 to 12 mm. The panels are water-resistant, non-combustible (A2-s1, d0), highly durable and low-maintenance.
They are fabricated in the following models:
—Carat SL, with integral colour and a clear or coloured finish surface.
—Reflex, with an iridescent surface and an acrylic resin finish.
—Xpressiv, with a mottled finish.
Swisspearl offers a wide range of rivet heads and accessories to match the panels, as well as the option of perforated or textured panels, according to project specifications.
