Designed to mix-and-match

The new old trend

 

Combining different building materials has been a part of building traditions for centuries. The trend has developed continually through the years, and so has the elements and underlying reasons behind the combinations.

Today, the combination of materials can be chosen for several reasons; it can merely be an aesthetic choice, an economical alternative or to meet the market's standards of energy efficiency or sustainability which have gained grounds during the last decade.

Cembrit Plank is no exception with its versatile application and design options. As an ideal product for the renovation of older houses, Cembrit Plank and Cembrit Panel can be used to complement older brickwork, a modern plaster or glass facade.

Blending in while standing out

That is one of the reasons we design them not only to combine with other materials in terms of technical performance and installation ease but also visually.

They are available either with a smooth surface or an authentic-looking cedar finish. The matt coating applied as protection results in a very natural, wood-like appearance. Additionally, there are approximately 20+ standard colours, plus the possibility of ordering customised colours on request.

With such a wide range of design options to choose from, it becomes possible to achieve precisely the kind of results that will have homeowners proudly talking about their houses for years to come. Whether people are looking for a modern look, a functional fix or an added touch of classic elegance, we have a solution that fits every requirement.
