Designed for use as external walls for timber-framed homes, Scyon Walls’ range of cement composite cladding is lightweight but durable and adds an instant architectural finish that’s a great alternative to the brick look.
“The walls have been designed to be attached directly to the timber frame and take up less space than brick veneer cladding or a double-brick wall while offering brace support to the frame,” says Christian Hansen, Scyon’s marketing manager.
Available in four different designs – vertical and horizontal lines, a geometric grid design and classic weatherboard – the product arrives pre-primed which allows you to experiment with exterior paint colours. The product is also designed to resist shrinking, swelling and cracking – this means it holds paint longer which minimises ongoing maintenance.
“An estimated 85 percent of Australian homes are built with timber structures and these are the ideal external walls for timber framed homes,” says Christian. They can also be a space saver too. By eliminating brick veneer cladding and accompanying wall cavities, a three-bedroom home can gain up to an extra 10 square metres of floor space.
The product’s quick and easy installation requires a nail gun to timber or screws to steel and it’s resistant to termites, moisture damage, rot and fire when correctly installed and maintained.
