Eternit facade

A house facade made of Eternit has a great deal of creative freedom. While inconspicuous cladding panels in plastic look were often chosen in former times, modern facades are an architectural design element. The choice of finishes and colors can enhance "boring" exterior surfaces and create sophisticated looks. In all constructions, the masonry is additionally protected and an additional external insulation reduces the energy consumption for the heating partly enormously.

Single or multi-colored plates with or without shingle look

Contrary to the popular belief that Eternit as a façade fits visually only with modern architecture, the use of elements in, for example, shingle design also fits in well with old buildings and the country house style. A shingled Eternit façade is often reminiscent of a slate cladding often used in earlier times. Façades in imitation wood or imitation of stone are a perfect match for some alpine hut as well as for a civility radiating city villa. In addition, there is plenty of creative freedom due to the almost infinite choice of colors.

Large Eternit panels preferred in modern architecture

In the cladding of exterior walls of buildings and houses, which are to represent the contemporary style, especially large Eternit plates are used with narrow or almost invisible joints. Covered colors such as anthracite or a dark gray draw attention away from the facades to the structural features such as windows, roof form or plot. Bright colors such as white, red or green make the facades eye-catchers and give the entire house its own character. Color combinations can combine elegance with character, for example if they are clad in a stronger color than the rest of the façade.

Facade panels or slabs with substructure

The façade made of Eternit is a spatial product which, in addition to the pure façade cladding, requires a stable substructure. With wall brackets, which must be attached in large numbers to the outer wall, the so-called battens are held, on which the Eternit facade is attached. When buying, the weight of the selected facade must be calculated and the corresponding substructure mounted. Depending on the condition of the wall and the location of the house, the insulation - usually stone or glass wool - should be made. The prices are based on the thickness of the facade, color and structure and start at around sixty euros per square meter without substructure.
