As part of our vision, we are committed to supporting our customers by supplying products that make building James Hardie™ systems easier, faster, better. Accordingly, James Hardie will introduce the following new products launching 1st October 2018.
New 3,600mm Long External Cladding Sheets
- Scyon™ Axon™ 133mm Smooth 1,200 x 3,600mm
- EasyLap™ panel 1,200 x 3,600mm
These new 3,600mm long range additions provide an enhanced aesthetic finish for designs incorporating pitched roofs, parapets or higher internal ceilings. Additionally, installation efficiencies and savings are realised due to the elimination of joints and less wastage.
New 0.75MM BMT ExoTec™ and James Hardie™ Intermediate Top Hats:
- ExoTec™ Top Hat 0.75mm BMT 6,000mm long
- ExoTec™ Top Hat 0.75mm BMT 7,200mm long
- James Hardie™ Intermediate Top Hat 0.75mm BMT 6,000mm long
- James Hardie™ Intermediate Top Hat 0.75mm BMT 7,200mm long
ExoTec™ system top hat components have been re-engineered and tested to deliver greater installation, handling and cost benefits. The new 0.75mm BMT top hats are lighter and therefore easier to handle
*Details included in updated technical literature available at time of launch.
Note: the new 0.75mm BMT range will supersede the existing 1.15mm BMT specification effective 1st October 2018. During the transition period, both 0.75mm and 1.15mm BMT specifications may be installed on the same project on the premise that the install guidelines for the 1.15mm BMT specifications are adopted.
New Versilux™ 9mm Thick Sheet Sizes
- Versilux™ lining Square 1,200 x 2,400mm
- Versilux™ lining Square 1,200 x 3,000mm
These two new popular sizes are designed to provide a uniform transition from ExoTec™ facades to Versilux™ soffits across commercial and multi-residential projects.
