EQUITONE is a through-coloured facade material designed by and for architects. Our company has produced these facade panels since the 1950´s under the name ¨ETERNIT¨. Every EQUITONE panel is unique, showing the raw, untreated texture of the fibre cement base material. Fibre cement is a cement composite material that consists of cement, cellulose and mineral materials, reinforced by a visible matrix. Nothing else. The EQUITONE material comes in a maximum panel size of 1.25 x 3m and can be transformed into any size or shape in the workshop or on-site. Furthermore, the material can be perforated or printed. Visible and invisible rainscreen fixing methods include riveting, screwing and bonding on metal or wood supporting frames. No matter what design options you explore, the through-coloured nature of EQUITONE assures crisp, monolithic details.
EQUITONE facade materials offer unparalleled design flexibility. The fibre cement material is through-coloured, which means the surface displays the inner texture and colour of the core eternit material. No matter what facade design options you explore, the through-coloured materials can be transformed into crisp, monolithic facade details. EQUITONE facade material comes in a maximum panel size of 1.25 x 3m and can be transformed into any size or shape using standard tools in the workshop or on site. The material can be perforated using waterjet or CNC machines, large or very small cuts can be made, it can even be embossed and printed. Some designers have used it for interiors or furniture. The EQUITONE through-coloured materials allow you to achieve flawless intricate details.
When Ludwig Hatschek invented fibre cement in the late 19th century, he combined the basic elements of the earth: mineral materials, water, air and fire (heat) in a simple filtration process. He named the resulting material ¨Eternit¨, hinting at the superior durability of this new material. Our mother company, Etex Group, has been manufacturing these materials since 1905. The most recent and most prestigious incarnation in this prould heritage of unique materials is the EQUITONE® facade material.
