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.

Two designs, one product

  • Eliminates the need for specialised applicators – only two trades (your carpenter and painter) are needed for the complete installation with a roller-applied acrylic texture paint finish**
  • Installation is clean and dry
  • Lightweight and composite construction means scaffolds are typically up for less time when compared to masonry construction
  • A subtle vertical shadow line where the two boards meet at the ship-lap
  • Able to hold tiles up to 50kg/m2
  • Suitable for Bushfire construction up to BAL-40
  • Up to 60 minutes Fire Rating when used with HardieSmart™ wall systems
  • Fast installation because it eliminates the need for a vertical set joint and control joint
  • The large sheets with off-the-shelf corner finishing details give fast broadwall coverage
  • Made from thick and solid 8.5mm fibre cement
  • Resistant to damage from termites, rot and fire
