General Technical Information

EasyLap™ panel

What is it?

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.

Where do you use it?

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.

What are the key benefits?
    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.
