Barestone cladding panels are 9mm thick and square edged creating a geometric panelized aesthetic. In exterior applications the panels are held in place with exposed screws or rivets which create a look of industrial sophistication.
Barestone Ash panels are a tranquil colour. They’re mostly mid grey with interesting dark patches and patterns. As the name suggests, the color is reminiscent of ash left after a fire. Where a subtle hint of metals and minerals remain.
This makes for industrial facades and minimalist internal feature walls.
There are four colours in the Barestone panel cladding range. They can be combined together for eye-catching façade designs. The Ash panel sits in the middle of the colour palette.
It can be combined with lighter Barestone Original to keep the façade design on the tranquil side. Alternatively, it can be used with the two darker coloured cladding panels, Lunar and Graphite, for darker, more sophisticated designs.
The mottled fibre cement texture is evident in all Barestone products. No matter what the panel combination is, it still gives walls a cohesive look.
The raw concrete look of fibre cement cladding panels have a contemporary simplicity. The material honesty resonates with architectural trends. The clean lines and minimalistic form provide a sleek and uncluttered look which can be used on external or internal walls.
Disclaimer: Product images and samples may vary from actual product regarding colour and surface finish due to the manufacturing process and raw materials used.
Barestone Ash Cladding Installation
There are two exterior cladding systems, one for commercial buildings and one for detached homes.
- Commercial buildings. Use the versatile Commercial ExpressWall® top hat fixing system. It creates a Pressure Equalized Ventilated Cavity System to enhance weather resistance and moisture management.
- Detached homes. Use a conventional and cost-effective practice of installing the panels onto timber battens.
Fix panels to timber, non-structural light gauge steel framing, masonry, concrete, and other suitable substrates in two ways.
- Concealed fixing. Adhesive products are used to install to timber or steel studs.
- Exposed fasteners. Exposed head screws or Barestone rivets can be used on steel studs.
For peace of mind, Barestone Original is CodeMark Certified CM20198. Panels can be used whenever a non-combustible material is required by NCC2022 Clause C2D10 (6)(d) [NCC2019: C1.9 (e)(iv)].
The Barestone wall system can achieve a Bushfire Attack Level of up to BAL40 when constructed in accordance with Australian Standard AS3959 and Cemintel’s design and installation guides.
