Cempanel, the cement particle board from Cembrit, demonstrates its versatility and excellent performance on a high profile school academy building project. The £22m Ormiston Horizon Academy is located in Stoke-On-Trent and is built to the latest environmental building standards. 10,000m² of Cempanel have been installed by cladding contractor, ISEC Interior Systems as a cost effective interior sheath and carrier board for insulated render/rainscreen on the main Academy building.
Cempanel CP boards are available in 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 16mm thicknesses. The boards fitted at Ormiston Horizon Academy were 10mm which makes them robust, hard-wearing and well suited for use as an internal skin for the new academy building.
The combination of wood particles and cement creates a board that is stronger and lighter than plasterboard and is less likely to be damaged on site. The cement particles make it easy to cut and install. Its insulation properties helped to achieve the energy efficiency and construction goals for this project.
