When Ludwig Hatschek first invited fibre cement in the late 19th century, he combined the basic elements of the earth: minerals, water, air and fire (heat) in a simple filtration process. Our mother company, Etex has been manufacturing fibre cement materials since 1905, with the most prestigious incarnation of this proud heritage of unique materials being EQUITONE®. Designed by architects for architects, the panels are through coloured, high density, low maintenance and durable. They also show the raw, natural and untreated texture of the fibre cement core. See your design come to life and achieve crisp, monolithic designs every time. With EQUITONE, the design options are endless.
