MEGABOARD™

MEGABOARD™ is an alternative multi-application Fibre cement sheet or Fibre cement board. There are many different types of fibre cement sheets and fibre cement boards in the market including blue board, impact board, wet area boards, thick sheet and on the list goes. The reason for all these variations is that they all different applications.

MEGABOARD™ is a single product and is promoted for different applications such as wet areas, impact resistance, acoustic resistance and fire resistance. Predominantly, MEGABOARD™ does two main tasks as a cladding board, protecting the building and providing an excellent base board for finishing with a render or paint.

MEGABOARD™ can take a lot of the confusion out of the process. It is one board with multiple applications.

MEGABOARD Fibre Cement Sheeting

 

Made out of composite materials that are fully recyclable, MEGABOARD™ is also one of the most exciting products being brought to market. MEGABOARD™ is a Fibre Cement sheet manufactured from Sorrel Cement rather than ordinary Portland Cement. Ranging in thickness size from 6mm – 12mm, the properties of the product make it one of the most diverse and innovative products we have sourced.

Various compositions of fibre cement sheets have become more prevalent as builders seek to utilise lightweight construction materials. Home owners should discuss using MEGABOARD™ with their architects, designers or engineers, as there may be opportunity to reduce other building costs when using MEGABOARD™.

MEGABOARD™ is also suitable to be used for most cladding applications as both a Type A (External) and Type B (Internal) board.

Wet Area Board

MEGABOARD™ has also excellent water resistant properties passing water impermeability tests EN 12467:2912+A1:2016. MEGABOARD™ is  also suitable for bathrooms, wet areas, showers, laundries and toilets.

Impact Board

MEGABOARD™ is ideal to use in interior cladding and exterior cladding wall applications that required high impact durability and enhanced moisture and mould resistance. MEGABOARD™ has layers of high tensile fiberglass mesh that provides the highest level of impact resistance and strength. MEGABOARD™ has a high MOE therefore providing excellent resistance to sound transmission when used in conjunction with appropriate acoustic batts.

The MEGABOARD™ 8mm is suitable for building with high traffic areas such as schools, hospital corridors, gymnasiums, supermarkets, utilities rooms, change rooms, airport terminals and public buildings. With 34MPa Impact Strength and  bending strength of 14 MPa, MEGABOARD is also a perfect impact board for these and other applications.

MEGABOARD™ is suitable as a Type A and Type B making it ideal for internal and external applications. As an external cladding, MEGABOARD™ is an excellent substrate either as a render board with recessed edges that are flushed, or as an express joint with square edges that do not require flushing.

MEGABOARD™ can successfully have numerous coating  / finishing systems. including paint, rendered or tiled.

Sustainability

MEGABOARD™ is a highly sustainable Fibre Cement sheet. Manufactured using a Sorrel (Magnesia) Cement it has about 40% less energy embodiment than Ordinary Portland cement fibre cement sheets. Ordinary Portland Cement sheets are steam cured in large autoclave ovens at 180° C. Magnesia cement is cured at room temperature. The wood chip that is used to create Magnesia fibre cement is all certified chips from plantation farms. One of the environmental benefits of Magnesia cement is that it absorbs CO2 whereas Ordinary Portland cement continues to emit CO2 over its lifespan.

Testing

MEGABOARD™ fibre cement sheeting has undertaken significant testing including acoustic, bend and deflection, thermal resistance, non-combustibility, and a range of other tests to confirm compliance to Australian Standards. Testing data is submitted for evaluation to various engineers with specialities including Fire, Acoustics, Structural and Thermal engineering disciplines.
