In case of a fire, you want to know that the walls of your house will protect you while your family seeks safety. Fire feasts on wood, and it melts vinyl almost instantly. But James Hardie® cladding will not ignite when exposed to a direct flame, nor will it contribute fuel to a fire.James Hardie fibre cement cladding carries the highest possible fire rating: A2 s1-d0

James Hardie cladding, weatherboards and building facades are made from advanced fibre cement material, which is non-combustible. With a high density and dimensional stability, fibre cement is naturally resistant to adverse events such as fire, extreme weather conditions, pests, rot and fade. Our cladding is used all over the world, including fire-prone areas where our products are specified to help resist fire attack from burning embers, radiant heat or flame contact. As the global leader in fibre cement technology, you can rest assured that when you use James Hardie cladding, you are using the highest fire rated (A2, s1-d0) facade cladding possible for a coloured exterior product.

Moisture and mould sensitive areas like kitchens and bathrooms are particularly prone to the negative influence of water on tile backer boards. Whereas traditional materials such as plywood and plasterboard are liable to break or disintegrate when wet, have confidence that your job will last with a board that stays strong and firm, no matter how damp or wet it gets. Get the best protection against moisture damage when you use HardieBacker® board. It’s the floor tiling backerboard of choice wherever superior performance is required.

With its unique cement formulation, HardieBacker board has no loose aggregates or fillers, making a strong and uniform tile backerboard.

Have confidence that your job will last – resisting rot, swelling and warping when exposed to moisture – when you choose HardieBacker 6 mm. It’s the water-resistant cement backerboard that works perfectly with all types of tile or natural stone flooring.

Our light, easy-to-cut, no-mesh board features our exclusive EZ Grid® recessed pattern, making installation even easier. Install it over an existing timber floor or in conjunction with underfloor heating to optimise heat efficiency. The slim-line 6 mm elevation prevents floor build up and minimizes the transition between floors.

HardieBacker 6 mm with MouldBlock™ Technology is the durable water and mould resistant alternative to plywood for tiling on floors. Just like HardieBacker 12 mm, it has excellent adhesive properties, ensuring that whatever ceramic or stone tile you use, it will hold strong with applied weights of up to 100 kg/m².

Use the durable, mould and water-resistant alternative to plasterboard for tiling on walls. Our 12 mm thick cement backerboard with MouldBlock™ Technology for tile and stone doesn’t swell, rot or warp, so that your tiling work stays put. HardieBacker 12 mm is strong: boasting the highest flexibility and up to 3x the compressive strength compared to competitive boards.

HardieBacker fastens directly to any floor, wall or wooden frame and lines up perfectly with any dry wall, making it particularly quick and easy to install.

Use HardieBacker 12 mm on the floor when additional height is needed. Its fire resistant properties also make it the ideal choice of wall panelling behind a boiler, or even behind a multi-fuel or wood-burning stove.
