Marley Eternit is a leading manufacturer of high quality, high performance façade cladding.

The EQUITONE range is produced using fibre cement, providing each panel with outstanding physical qualities with a thin and lightweight touch. EQUITONE fibre cement is Class 0 fire rated and has a life expectancy of over 50 years. The EQUITONE range is built up of Natura, Tectiva, Pictura and Textura, as detailed below:

EQUITONE Natura has a sleek, smooth surface which allows the natural definition of the fibre cement finish to show through, giving each panel a unique surface finish. Natura provides the aesthetics to fit any contemporary build and the performance levels to stand the test of time. EQUITONE Natura offers a Class O fire performance, excellent weather resistance and protection from insects, mould and rot. This rainscreen cladding is simple to install with both mechanical and secret fix options. Natura is available in 22 colours with an anti-graffiti coating as optional. This cladding panel offers the smoothest finish and comes in the highest price bracket.

EQUITONE Tectiva is characterised by the fine sanded lines and natural occurring hues within the fibre cement material. This makes each Tectiva panel unique in colour, texture and surface. The pigment is held within the mass of the board creating timeless colour that fits with any contemporary design. EQUITONE Tectiva has been awarded the highest BREEAM rating and is fully frost resistance. Tectiva is available in 9 organic through colours.

EQUITONE Pictura incorporates a protective surface treatment into the fibre cement sheeting. This treatment provides a hard, smooth matt surface with an acrylic coating which offers anti-graffiti protection. Pictura is waterproof, provides noise insulation to any building and is insect, rot and mould resistant. Pictura’s UV cured top layer also offers protection against on site stains and mechanical damaged. This non-combustible cladding has an installation life expectancy of at least 50 years and is BBA certified. EQUITONE Pictura is available in 15 bold colours with a grey fibre dense core. Please note that Pictura comes with unfinished edges and fabrication is recommended. Beware of chipping through the painted surface coating when handling.
