Cembrit, specialist in corrugated sheet, cladding and roof slates, is returning to the Agricultural Buildings Show for the third year running. Visitors to Stand 3 will have an opportunity to see Cembrit’s corrugated sheeting products, Cemsix and B5, as well as its 3.2mm CH and 6mm HD flat sheet wallboard.
“We have decided to exhibit at the show this year, as it always proves a success for Cembrit.” says Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager at Cembrit. “For a one day exhibition, the show offers us the perfect platform for displaying our key products to the agricultural industry as it gets the right visitors through the door.”
Visitors to the stand will be able to preview Cembrit’s Cemsix range on display which is ideal for aggressive environments such as livestock housing where the rust and rot proof characteristics of fibre cement make it the most durable roofing and cladding product for agricultural buildings. The product is available in all common sheet lengths, and the standard UK corrugated six inch profile has full BBA certification: 03 with a warranty available on request. Robust and practical – it incorporates reinforcing strips to latest British Standard – and benefiting from 100 years expertise – it requires no maintenance to preserve its strength which ensures it ideal for commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings. The sheets are completely weatherproof and are not affected by destructive fungi, vermin or insects, so will not rot or decay.
Cemsix conforms to the necessary fire safety requirements being a Class 0 surfaced material with an EXT.S.AA rating. The Cemsix range also features a wide range of accessories including cranks, ridges and bargeboards. A datasheet is available with full technical information and installation guidance.
Also on display is Cembrit’s B5 corrugated sheet - the perfect solution for someone looking to clad or repair single-story buildings such as stables and equestrian buildings. The rust and rot free B5 can be used to a lower pitch and with smaller overlaps in comparison to the traditional 3 inch profile. B5 is available in fourteen different lengths ranging from 4' to 10' 6" and the sheets are approximately 40% wider than the 3” profile which allows for much better coverage per sheet, and an improved water shedding capacity. Available in grey, or with other colours benefiting from Cembrit’s 3 part coloration process which incorporates anti-block rear coat, primer and decorative top coat in a total of 10 colour options. Sheets are available from 4” to 10’6” lengths with matching accessories and can be laid to 10° minimum pitch.
Completing the package of building boards for agricultural use are 3.2mm CH flat sheet wallboard and 6mm HD wallboard. Both are developed for extreme climatic/working conditions, the smooth and easy to clean surface can be pressure washed, providing an ideal material for livestock buildings including poultry houses. The product is suitable for use in composite panels or as backer for laminates, and has a density of 1700 kg/m3. The board will not support mould growth, and resists insects and micro-organisms. It is a smooth, versatile board which can be used as a backing for laminates, as partition walling, as a balancing board in composite panels or cut to size for all forms of panels and strips.
