Create a colour-fast statement to your vision

ROCKPANEL Rockclad

Imagine the freedom of choosing any colour you like from an artist’s palette and then painting your building in the perfect tone of your choice. That’s the choice you have with the ROCKPANEL Rockclad range.

Material and use

The ROCKPANEL boards are produced from compressed natural basalt, a sustainable and readily available volcanic rock and bonded with an organic binder from which all ROCKPANEL products derive their unique properties. The products combine the advantages of stone and workability wood. The cladding boards are suitable for use as exterior cladding, applications along the roofline and for building detailing.

ProtectPlus, extra protection

The most beautiful colours deserve the best protection. Therefore we offer the ProtectPlus finish, the most powerful protective layer for ROCKPANEL board material. ROCKPANEL Rockclad can be optionally finished with a transparent ProtectPlus layer for orders from 100 m².

The benefits of the ProtectPlus finish are:

Because of its composition, our boards offer excellent properties when compared with traditional building materials such as:
wood, fibre cement board (FCB) and High Pressure Laminate (HPL) board material.

Unique composition and properties

Take no risks - be on the (fire-)safe side

Creating fire-safe buildings to protect the people living and working inside is an increasingly important issue. With the ROCKPANEL FS-Xtra grade we developed an exterior cladding board which meets the European fire class A2-s1, d0 (non-combustible according to national building regulations) when fixed on a metal sub-frame with rivets. Next to that we offer the Durable and Xtreme grades, which are classified as B-s2, d0. When using ROCKPANEL boards you can create façades with a high level of fire safety with a broad range of aesthetic finishes.

Add your personal signature

If you are looking for a truly unique façade with a personal touch, you have the option to engrave ROCKPANEL boards with your own creative design – corporate logos, text, graphic images – the only limit is your creativity! Designs can be made with a CNC router on a 10mm thick board (maximum engraving depth of 2mm). A further advantage of engraving on ROCKPANEL boards is that the engraved parts don’t need any additional protection.
