  • Requires less energy in assembly and construction than all other wall materials except timber.
  • Low energy consumption in transportation and installation.
  • Environmental costs relating to ozone layer depletion, carcinogenic substances and solid waste emissions are almost negligible.
  • Low environmental impact in relation to ozone layer depletion, carcinogenic substances, and solid waste emissions.
  • No pesticides are involved in the manufacture or use of fibre cement.

Embodied Energy – Definition
Embodied energy is the energy consumed by all of the processes associated with the production of a building, from the mining and processing of natural resources to manufacturing, transport and product delivery. Embodied energy does not include the operation and disposal of the building material. This would be considered in a life cycle approach. Embodied energy is the ‘upstream’ or ‘front-end’ component of the lifecycle impact of a home. Fibre cement is one of the most energy efficient materials on the market and it has one of the lowest embodied energy contents per square metre of cover of any building product.

Nutec Building Planks
Nutec Building Plank provides an out of the ordinary solution for external and internal cladding. Usually installed in a ship lapped pattern, it is available in a plain and textured finish that gives the realistic look and feel of timber. Application possibilities range from facades for upmarket complexes to the external skin of timber-framed dwellings. Nutec Building Plank is ideally suited for upgrading facades or adding a striking look to new developments. They offer the perfect solution to add-on construction in the form of extra rooms or loft rooms, and are an economical alternative to brick and plaster gable walls on houses.
  • Relatively light in weight, Nutec Building Planks can be supported on light gauge metal frames or light timber structures. These factors facilitate easy handling and erection and are major benefits on projects where low mass construction is an important factor.
  • It features all the intrinsic benefits of Nutec Fibre Cement.
  • Nutec Building Planks are supplied in their natural colour and they can be painted on site with an acrylic PVA, or any other water-based paint without pre-treatment.
  • Manufactured to the highest internal quality standards and compliance is ensured by strict quality assurance programmes in the production process as well as stringent testing in our laboratory. EVERITE products are manufactured to the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System.
  • Nutec Building Planks can be used for the cladding of external or internal walls in timber and light weight steel frame construction. See the South African Building Code SANS 10082 for more details on timber construction.
