Cembrit Ltd


Cembrit have been manufacturing fibre cement products for the construction industry since 1928 and are now one of the largest manufacturers of fibre cement products in Europe. With more than 20 years experience in the UK, we are widely recognised for our portfolio of roofing products (slates/corrugated sheeting). However, we also have an extensive building board and rainscreen façade offering for the UK construction industry. Since the opening of our new, purpose built, factory in Hungary 4 years ago, we have broadened our façade rainscreen product range and extended our range of product finishes.Cembrit was issued with BBA certification for its façade board range in 2018. Along with its non-combustible fire classification, it is the ideal lightweight façade material to be specified as part of rainscreen cladding systems.Cembrit’s façade products cater for all aesthetic requirements, whether it’s the natural finish of our Patina panels, or the acrylic painted finish of our Cover or Solid Panels (ideal alternatives to HPL material), our range has it covered. Along with an extensive range of finishes and colours, Cembrit façade boards also have a fire performance that provides reassurance and comfort with the knowledge that they are non-combustible.

Fibre Cement Façade Systems: Fire Safety, Building Regulations and Aesthetics
This CPD focusses on fibre cement, concentrating on current and pending building regulations changes in relation to Approved Document B and change of regulator to HSE. Further reflecting on these changes, it analyses the difference between fire reaction and fire resistance and examines product testing within rainscreen and full system testing of rainscreen cladding systems. Whilst discussing these key technical points, the CPD also highlights various aesthetics that can be achieved using fibre cement facade materials. By the end of the presentation you should have a greater understanding of:
- Building Regulations Changes - Amendment to ADB
- Fire Safety – What is the difference between Fire Resistance and Fire Reaction
- The significant difference between testing a products performance compared to testing a systems performance
- Further Building Regulatory Changes – HSE involvement and the importance of 'The Golden Thread'
- Aesthetics and whether you need to compromise on the aesthetic whilst using fibre cement as a material

This CPD can be delivered to you live and remotely.
