    EQUITONE is a through-coloured facade material designed by and for architects, produced since the 1950´s under the name ‘Eternit’.

Every EQUITONE panel has unique characteristics in its texture, colour highlighting its raw, untreated texture and natural finish.  The product can be cut to any sizes and shapes; not only that but the material can be routed, perforated or printed. With such an easy to use and flexible product, any design can be achieved, whether it be a rain screen or fully baffled system, its versatility is like no other FC material previously available to the market.

    • Resistant to extreme weather conditions and temperatures

    • Integral  through colour, no ongoing maintenance required

    Installation:

    EQUITONE facade materials can be fixed to the building structure using a number of face and back fixing options. The facade panels are assembled on a vertical  support structure that consists of metal profiles or wooden battens.

    EQUITONE facade materials are assembled using the ventilated facade (rainscreen) system. The panels use open joints, that add visual depth and allow for maximum back ventilation of the facade system. The rainscreen system is gaining popularity worldwide, as it creates healthy, breathing buildings. Driving rain is kept outside the structure, yet it allows water vapour from inside the structure to escape.

    Fixing

    Face fixing options include riveting and screwing on metal or wood supporting frames. Back fixing options are glue fix with a approved SIKKA-TAK panel system on metal frames or timber frames. Please contact us for more information.

    We are talking about a company who are over 100 years old, cladding over 3 Million square meters of facade materials on buildings worldwide last year.  Australia is embracing this material to enable the designs we imagine come into realisation, withstanding the elements of time.
