Textura combines vivid colour, texture and toughness in one fully compressed fibre cement cladding panel.
With a highly glazed, granular finish available in any factory-approved RAL colour, it is impact resistant yet strong, light in weight and easy to use.
Its performance pedigree is second to none, complying with British and European Standards with regard to fire resistance and spread of flame.
Textura panels can be surface-fixed, or secured with specially designed, concealed fixings.
Maximum module available after trimming by fabricator (including 10mm joint) is 2500 x 1250, 3100 x 1250 and 3100 x 1500.
Face panel thickness: 8 mm / 12mm.
Façade & Rail Weight
Module size, thickness and railing are dependent on project design requirements. For accurate weights for your specific application, contact the Benchmark Technical Services Department.
Boards have a thickness tolerance of +/- 10%.
Cementitious boards are fibre-reinforced cement boards thatsatisfy the requirements of Category A, Class 2 to BS EN 12467:2004 (Fibre-cement flat sheets). Panels are manufactured by abatch-blending operation, followed by the Hatchek process andhigh-pressure steam autoclaving.
Aluminium Secondary Rail System
Secret Fix - The extruded aluminium straps or hooks, in 6063/T6 conforming to BS EN 12020-1: 2008 grade alloy, are secured to the boards using undercut stainless steel expanding anchors or self-tapping stainless steel screws into pre-drilled holes. These are secured to the aluminium secondary rail system using either self-drilling/ self-tapping stainless steel fasteners or hook on hangers. The secondary rail system is securely fastened to the insulated wall panel with expanding self-fixing aluminium and stainless steel fasteners.
Through Fix - The boards are secured to the aluminium rail system using coloured aluminium rivets. The rail system is securely fastened to the insulated wall panel with expanding self-fixing aluminium and stainless steel fasteners.
For the through fix option, rivets and screws are available in the same colour as the panel, to disguise the fixings.
Site assembly instructions are available from the Benchmark Technical Services Department.
