Lagan Building Solutions (LBS) is thrilled to be announced as Ireland’s new exclusive distributor of James Hardie™ – the world’s market leader in fibre cement cladding products.
Since being founded in Australia in 1888, James Hardie™ has grown to be the largest manufacturer of fibre cement products across the globe with an annual revenue of $4 billion, over 5,000 employees and multiple factories worldwide. This partnership between James Hardie and LBS represents a superb addition to the Irish market and a welcome expansion to the existing range of cladding options available at LBS.
Fibre cement is a versatile building material. It is produced sustainably and with low energy consumption from high-quality Portland cement, sand and cellulose fibres. Thanks to its unique material properties, the James Hardie™ fibre cement formulation is perfectly suited to exterior wall cladding as it offers high stability, weather resistance and protection against fire, moisture, and mould. Unlike wood or some types of vinyl, James Hardie™ does not crack, shrink or swell, even after years of use under the most extreme climatic conditions.
The best-selling Hardie Plank® is particularly durable as a result of decades of research and development. Covered by the best warranty in the market, the Hardie Plank® offers an unbeatable combination of quality, performance and beauty. Despite being thinner and lighter than alternative building materials, the Hardie Plank® is significantly stronger thanks to its robust properties. This makes assembly quick and easy, with fewer complications and breakages on construction sites.
Made with ColourPlus™ technology and advanced material fibre cement, which has an expected life span of more than 60 years, the Hardie Plank® offers a high-performance, low-maintenance alternative to wood or PVC cladding. Having been designed in association with architects, developers and installers across the UK and US, the Hardie Plank® is ideal for new builds, housing developments and refurbishment projects, and has become the façade of choice for builders, architects and homeowners alike. With a wide range of stunning colours and styles, there is truly something to suit every design.
The LBS nationwide sales team is on hand to answer any questions and to help you choose the perfect product for your project. For a versatile, weatherproof façade with a beautiful natural texture, look no further than James Hardie™ fibre cement cladding available exclusively at LBS.
