Roofing and cladding specialist, Cembrit will be showcasing its industry-leading range of natural roofing slates and fibre cement cladding at the RCI Show 2016. Visitors to stand E4 will be able to view examples of the products, find out about the latest developments within these product ranges, and discover how they can be best used to deliver outstanding results.
Natural slate retains its popularity as a roof covering as a result of its aesthetic appeal, beautiful variety and use on many majestic buildings in the UK’s architectural heritage. Contemporary understanding of the ecological impact of building materials has enhanced natural slate’s popularity, as it requires a comparably low energy input for processing relative to other alternatives.
Cembrit’s range of fibre cement rainscreen claddings in 60 combinations of colour and surface treatment will be shown including Cembrit’s popular ‘through coloured’ cladding board will also be on display at the show. Cembrit representatives will explain to visitors how the combination of colour stability, with a class 0 fibre rating to BS 476 part 6 and a class 1 rating to BS 476 part 7, makes its cladding products ideal for overcladding rainscreen applications.
