Fibre Cement – Internal Linings Protected from Damage
Does your build require solutions for frequently wet or high traffic rooms? Do you need linings that can withstand daily shower moisture or splashbacks that protect kitchen walls from stains and splashes? Many rooms in your projects will probably face heavy daily usage from general wear and accidental spills. You need to be sure that you’ve selected materials that protect against these potentially damaging factors.
Fibre cement is perfect for interior usage where more delicate materials are unsuitable. Big River stocks a wide range of fibre cement options ideal for use as either a substrate or a visible lining. With choices from leading manufacturer James Hardie you can select the variety most suitable for your project.
Durable, Interior Linings and Substrates
When you need a hardwearing material for substrate linings, such as those in bathrooms or kitchens, fibre cement is the answer. Its tensile strength means when used as a substrate you can secure tiling higher up the walls in bathrooms. Its smooth, flat surface makes tiling simple to apply, with easy, damage-free removal if mistakes in tiling are made. Good impact and moisture resistance makes it long lasting, without deforming or losing structural integrity. So there are no surprising or expensive repairs down the line for homeowners – and fewer call backs for you.
Where hardwearing or appealing linings are required, such as hallways, living rooms or garages, fibre cement offers the suitable qualities. With textured and grooved options available, you can create visually interesting interiors without sacrificing functionality. Resistant to wear and tear, thin and lightweight means:
- Easy installation
- Less valuable internal space used
- Long lifetimes
