A strong, fibre cement base sheet with a shiplap vertical joint, that is finished with a site applied roll-on textured acrylic paint to create a rendered look with a subtle vertical joint. Lightweight but durable, EasyLap™ panel is the most easily installed and cost-effective textured broadwall cladding solution.
As an external wall cladding in alterations and additions, and residential single and medium density dwellings where a uniform, broadwall cladding is required. Ideal for full wrap or composite construction designs on either timber or steel framed homes.
- SPEED. The exposed vertical shiplap joint enables fast installation because it eliminates the need for a vertical set joint and control joint. Added to this, the large sheets with off-the-shelf corner finishing details give fast broadwall coverage.
COST-EFFECTIVE. The roller applied acrylic texture paint finish eliminates the need for specialised applicators - only two trades (your carpenter and painter) are needed for the complete installation and there’s a clean, dry worksite to boot. Lightweight construction mean scaffolds are typically up for less time when compared to masonry construction.
SUBTLE APPEARANCE. The joint design gives a subtle vertical shadow line while maintaining large painted expanses.
SUSTAINABILITY. When EasyLap™ panel is used in conjunction with cavity construction and the right insulation (in accordance with James Hardie’s Wall System Thermal Performance Total R-Values Technical Supplement), an R-value of up to 3.4 can be achieved for the wall.
SECURITY. Made from thick and solid 8.5mm fibre cement, EasyLap™ panel is resistant to damage from termites, rot and fire*. A 10-year product warranty gives peace of mind.
*When installed and maintained correctly and to the extent set out in James Hardie’s published literature current at the time of installation.
