Three developments featuring Fairview façade and cladding panels were among the winners at the 2019 ACT Architecture Awards in Canberra. These projects featured Fairview’s high quality, non-combustible aluminium façade panel Stryüm as well as their natural architectural fibre cement cladding product, Equitone.
Stryüm aluminium façade panels offer a reliable, attractive and modern alternative to various commercial cladding products on the market. These panels have been specifically designed by experienced commercial façade professionals utilising the ventilated rainscreen system.
Equitone is a prefinished 8mm high density cladding available in an inspiring range of finishes that bring out the natural beauty of fibre cement. These façade panels are also environment-friendly and completely non-combustible, and can last for more than 50 years even in demanding exterior applications.
