At Sharpfibre we are proud to work with some of the most highly respected manufacturers of rainscreen cladding in Europe.  As approved and licensed installers of Marley Eternit and TRESPA, we are able to offer a wide range of rainscreen cladding design choices that are certain to meet the requirements of any project.  Below we offer a brief overview of the available options. 

Marley Eternit – Equitone

Marley Eternit’s Equitone panels are made from untreated fibre cement materials and are through-coloured.  The Hatscheck production process ensures that each panel has a textured finish.  The range is split into five subcategories, each offering its own unique appeal:

Equitone Linea boasts a 3D design that makes use of the changing light, allowing the façade to appear to change colour throughout the day. 

Equitone Natura has a smooth surface finish and a transparent protective layer.  Anti-graffiti protection is optional. 

Equitone Tectiva is a rough and unpolished panel, with a delicate linen touch and naturally occurring white flecks to enhance appearance.   

Equitone Pictura offers a range of modern colour coatings and an ultra-matt finish for a high-class architectural appearance.  Includes everlasting anti-graffiti protection. 

Equitone Textura has a robust highly scratch resistant surface that is available in a choice of vivid colour coatings.
