NEW Rivendale Cromleigh Graphite
Marley Eternit’s fibre cement range has been further enhanced by the addition of new colour, Cromleigh Graphite, to its Rivendale slates. Closely resembling natural slate, the Cromleigh Graphite features a riven surface and dressed edge offering specifiers and contractors even more choice and design versatility with the manufacturer’s fibre cement slates.
Charlotte Hughes, product manager at Marley Eternit, explains: "We understand the need to offer products and solutions that help specifiers and contractors designing and working on the cutting-edge projects of today. For this reason, we are focused on ensuring our fibre cement slates offer a range of design options, as well as striking and versatile aesthetics."
Marley Eternit’s fibre cement range is supported by the latest tools and services for specifiers including BIM objects. It is also covered by an environmental product declaration (EPD) to enable the comparison of the environmental impact of the slates to other products to help make an informed choice.
Charlotte Hughes concludes: "As fibre cement becomes increasingly popular, we are investing in research and development to help us bring new products to market that will help to support the growth in the use of the material across different building types. The launch of Cromleigh Graphite continues to take the design versatility of fibre cement to a different level, opening up new possibilities for creating imaginative designs."
As part of Marley Eternit’s fibre cement range, Rivendale slates offers industry leading sustainability credentials; including the ability to achieve the best environmental rating (A+) in the BRE Green Guide and BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing rating of ‘Very Good’.
Fibre cement also offers sustainability benefits throughout its whole life cycle, as it can be fully recycled at the end of its use. Waste fibre cement can be ground down and used to replace limestone and shale in clinker production, the essential ingredients for Portland cement.
