James Hardie Easylap Panel
Fast and easy. Ideal for broadwalls – and now compatible with HardieSmart™ systems and tiling
A strong fibre cement substrate with a shiplap vertical joint, it’s finished with either a site-applied roll-on textured acrylic paint** or tiles. Lightweight but durable. The easily installed and cost-effective broadwall, textured cladding solution. Pre-primed sheet with a shiplap edge joint along the two long edges.
Ideal to be used as 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.
