Cemintel® Surround™ Blackish is a dark grey-black cladding for exteriors. It’s the most monumental of all colours that’s stunning on its own.
The Surround Blackish range has different coatings and textures which all give a different matte effect. They respond differently to light giving variety within the palette of black external wall cladding.
Black is the strongest of the neutrals. It’s associated with dominance, authority, sophistication and affluence. But also, quality, mystery, and fear.
There’s no doubt, a house or building with a black exterior is a confident striking choice. Dark grey and black cladding suits well-proportioned minimalist forms. Buildings which sit in natural settings create a compelling contrast.
Black can work well with other colours. Like white, a classic pairing. Greys have a family resemblance and work well too. Mixing black cladding with vibrant colours from the secondary colour palette makes for an eye-catching contrast.
Blackish Cladding Wall Installation
External Wall Installation.
Surround Cladding can be installed in various layouts using the ExpressWall top hat fixing system.
The system can be installed onto steel or timber stud framing, masonry or concrete. Panels are fixed with express joints using Surround colour-matched rivets.
The installation is designed to create a Pressure Equalised Ventilated Cavity System which delivers high weather performance and moisture management.
Interior Wall Installation.
Surround panels can be installed as an internal lining for feature walls in dry areas.
Panels can be fixed to timber or nonstructural light gauge steel framing. They can also be fixed to masonry, concrete or autoclaved aerated concrete substrates via timber or MDF battens or metal furring channels.
Concealed fixing is achieved using SIKA adhesive products.
Colour matched rivets can also be used with steel framing.
