The accreditation covers large format corrugated sheets manufactured from fibre-reinforced cement, for use as roof and wall cladding.
This renewal of the BBA Certification incorporates UK formats and applications and is particularly useful for farm building and frame manufacturers constructing single-skin structures for aggressive environments says Ged Ferris, marketing manager at Cembrit. It demonstrates that we take the needs of UK agriculturalists seriously and it compliments our fibre cement slates certification. It is always great to have products recognised in such a way that offers specifiers the assurance that they want.
Cemsix is available in natural grey or five attractive pre-coloured options; slate blue, terracotta, dark brown, anthracite or olive green. Ideal for agricultural, commercial and industrial buildings, robust and practical Cemsix requires no maintenance to preserve its strength. Cemsix corrugated sheet incorporates the standard imperial 6 inch profile and is strengthened with strategically placed polypropylene reinforcement strips. These are incorporated within the fibre-cement sheet to comply with BS and H&S requirements for site safety and fragility.
