Make inspiring designs a reality with ComTex™ Panel and System. A lightweight monolithic façade solution, ComTex provides creative freedom of form without being constrained by the weight of masonry construction. The 9mm thick panels are recessed along their two longer sides to facilitate the construction of concealed joints. Used with a top-hat fixing system on either timber or light gauge steel frames, ComTex is a lightweight method of construction and can reduce costly engineering details, structural beams and scaffolding associated with heavy masonry. The pre-primed panels are site-finished with a high build texture system that incorporates reinforced jointing and texture coating. When used in conjunction with fire resistant plasterboard, a fire rating of up to 2 hours can be achieved.
Engineered to endure. Hardie’s fibre cement is resistant to fire, termites, rot and damage from moisture.
The proprietary fixing system makes installation fast and cost-effective. Pre-primed panels to speed up finishing.
Suitable for non-combustible construction.
