Key Features

The 1200 x 3000 x 8mm prefinished square edge panels come trimmed and sealed.

Superior weather resistance and strength compared to other fibre cement panels of similar thickness.

Panels can be installed horizontally or vertically with expressed joints using the ExpressWall® fixing system.

The applied final sealant coating better withstands weathering, pollution and micoroclimatic conditions such as mould/algae.

Cemintel® Surround™ Blueish cladding is perceived as a neutral grey with blue tones. A bluish grey, it has a cool, serene effect. The colour is reminiscent of steel beams.

Blue grey cladding on its own suits cold, minimalist building forms found in industrial and some contemporary architecture. However, it can be enlivened by combining it with colours from the Surround Secondary Palette.

The Surround Blueish range has different coatings and textures which all give a different matte effect. They respond differently to light giving variety within the palette of blue grey wall cladding.

The blue grey cladding colour evokes a sense of professionalism and suits cityscapes and urban environments.

Coloured cladding from the Surround Secondary Palette which complements Blueish includes:

  • Whiteout with Blueish. It’s a bold tonal contrast but with a consistent blue undertone.
  • Gauze with Blueish. They’re similar tonally and the combination of the earthy Gauze colour provides visual warmth.
  • Truss Grey with Blueish. Both blue grey colours, Truss Grey is darker and together they are a subtle yet compelling combination which invites random or asymmetrical geometric panel layouts.

Technical Information

Blueish 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.
