A rendered look with a subtle vertical joint

A strong fibre cement base sheet with a shiplap vertical joint, it’s 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 broadwall, textured cladding solution. Pre-primed sheet with a shiplap edge joint along the two long edges.

Uniform broadwall cladding, ideal for upper level additions

As an external wall cladding in residential single and medium-density homes, including alterations and additions, where a uniform broadwall cladding is required. Ideal for full wrap or composite construction designs on either timber or light gauge steel framed homes.

Affordable, fast and sustainable... and you only need a carpenter and painter!

  • 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 means scaffolds are typically up for less time when compared to masonry construction.
  • The joint design gives a subtle vertical shadow line while allowing you to create large painted expanses.
  • 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.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 3.44 can be achieved for the wall.
  • Made from thick and solid 8.5mm fibre cement, EasyLap panel is resistant to damage from termites, rot and fire.*
