Fiber Cement

Fiber cement is a composite material that is made of cement, cellulose and mineral materials, reinforced by a visible matrix. Every fiber cement facade panel is therefore unique, showing the through-colored texture of the base fiber cement material. At RapidMaterials, we source our fiber cement panels from the renown European manufacturer, Equitone. Our Equitone panels come in 4′ x 10′ (1.25m x 3m) and can be cut into any sizes or shapes. The panels can also be perforated or printed, and fitted onto buildings by riveting, screwing and bonding on metal or wood supporting frames. They are most ideal for use as rainscreens and are popular in the European countries.
