Fibre cement board matches modern demands CAPCO

SHERA Board combines high-impact strength with moisture and fire resistance properties, suitable for a wide range of applications.

Combining high-impact strength with moisture and fire resistance properties, SHERA Board is a perfect choice for building board applications such as wall cladding, wall partitioning and decorative walling.
The board is suitable for residential, commercial and industrial applications, as well as schools and hospitals, especially where speedy construction, cleanliness and hygiene are of high importance.
Satisfying the demands of modern design
SHERA Board is a non-asbestos, fibre-cement product composed of Portland cement, cellulose fibre and refined sand. Through a special manufacturing process called autoclave, SHERA Board acquires the strength and durability of cement, the easy workability of wood as well as dimensional stability.
A non-combustible, multi-purpose, fibre-cement flat board, SHERA Board comes in various thicknesses which are suitable for ceiling, wall and floor installations, both interior and exterior.
These boards can be perfectly calibrated and then laminated or coated with other materials such as wood veneer.
Building material class
SHERA boards are non-combustible and correspond to materials in building material class A2-s1, d0 (s1 = no smoke, d0 = no combustible drips), in accordance with EN13501-1.
