Teeple Architects chooses Eternit Fibre Cement in two shades of grey and white to develope a fascinating facade. Ritz Metal installed the material in a very effective, professional manner. Rear Ventilated Rain Screen ( RVRS ) facades perform better and offer the Architect and Owner a unique facade
The strong aesthetic appeal of zinc paneling lies especially in its incredible diversity: from Alpine cabins to modern museums and homes; from the avant-garde to the traditional. Roofs and façades made of titanium zinc offer more than just aesthetic advantages. Roofs and façades made of this diverse material are also environmentally friendly.
Eternit is good for large, medium and small buildings and offers Architects smooth or sandblasted textures that create a very natural, cementious look in a very durable product. It can be applied to walls, soffits and interiors. Panels can be horizontal or vertical and cut to any size you wish. Colours can be matched as you see fit.
Aesthetically pleasing, environmentally friendly, long-lasting, and maintenance-free are qualities that make zinc the ideal material. Zinc is available in Bright Rolled, Pre-weathered Blue-Gray and Pre-weathered Graphite-Gray.
Ceramic is an ancient material, recently designed into a Rear Ventilated Rain Screen ( RVRS ) façade. The panels are hung on rails, creating a space behind for ventilation. Installation is simply about lining up the rails. Aesthetics are unlimited: unglazed like ancient terra cotta, or glazed with colour or even artwork. In this example Engineered Assemblies assisted in the design of a rainscreen outside a brick façade that had failed. The ultimate makeover.
CPI Daylighting translucent polycarbonate panels are designed and fabricated into walls, like the blue panels shown, and skylights, canopies and interiors. The unique and patented design fits standard construction in a simple curtain wall manner. The interior structure means there are flush walls. Increased aesthetics are matched with superior economic, thermal, durability and fire performance over glass, fibreglass and other translucent systems.

Project: Ridgemount School
Richard Butterworth chose Eternit and CPI daylighting, and new windows to renovate Ridgemount and Westmount High School. The end result is a school to be proud of, better R value, better daylighting and learning environment. It was done while kids were still in school, saving the school board financially.
Richard Butterworth designed Eternit and CPI dayligting and new windows to create better R Value, improved daylighting, improved entrance with a eye-catching canopy, and overall a school to be proud of. All of this was done while the kids were in school, avoiding the expense of a summer only construction.

Architect: Turner Fleischer Architects
Location: Burlington, Ontario
Product: Ceramic Panel ( Clay tile )
Project: Fortions Grocery Store no 1
Engineered Assemblies designed, supplied and provided construction services to Fortinos. This is a bold step in branding as all the other stores in the area have the typical stucco beige. It stands out. EA and its partner also built the facade rapidly to meet aggressive schedule dates, even though the tile comes from Germany.
Reigo and Bauer designed an excellent renovation of a downtown home, using white Eternit fibre cement and zinc. Praxy Cladding Corp did the installation.

Eternit fibre cement is attractive, light and durable. It is especially good for this kind of recladding application where sound brick can take the load of rails and fibre cement panels.

Marine Cladding made this come together, mastering the math of a complex curve and the flexibility of Imetco Series 300 Zinc Roofing. The Owner receives a 25 year water tight warranty. Beautiful. Too bad it so remote.
In addition, the durable and aesthetic cladding is Eternit Natura.
