Fibre Cement Sheet Construction


Solutions for Fibre Cement Sheet Construction



Overview

The Australian timber and steel framing housing industry has favoured easy to maintain monolithic cladding. Fibre cement sheet has a proven record of providing an economical cladding solution with design flexibility, that meets todays requirements for architects and home owners. The StoArmat Render System is fracture, impact resistant and engineered to provide optimal protection and finish with warranty for all tapered fibre cement sheet construction, enabling specifiers to meet the project requirements and individual style.

StoArmat Render System

A high performance system that provides the optimal protection and durability for tapered fibre cement sheet construction. Before render system application, the surface is sealed and all joints are then flushed using StoArmat render embedded with Sto Jointing mesh for reinforcement. StoArmat render and glass fibre mesh is then applied over the full substrate , providing engineered reinforcement to reliably dissipate tensile, seismic and shear stress. Finished with perfectly interlocking components: Stolit fibre-reinforced coloured finishing render plus StoColor; creating a 4mm weather tight reinforcement system for reliability and protection that surpasses the facade durability requirements.

 

Installations are carried out by a registered Sto Contractor with the added protection of a StoArmat 15 or 20 Year Warranty with StoService Assurance guaranteeing building code compliant materials are used and application meets building code standards, including a service plan for long-term security.
