High-density BGC Compressed Fibre Cement sheeting is a superlative substrate for interior floors in framed-construction wet areas. Fine for upper storeys and transportable buildings, it’s equally suited for use in the cladding of exterior decks.
BGC Compressed Fibre Cement sheeting is manufactured from cement, finely-ground silica, cellulose fibres and water. After forming, we compress the sheeting to high density, then cure it in a high-pressure steam autoclave for an exceptionally durable, fit-for-purpose product.
Features & Benefits
What’s good about Compressed Fibre Cement flooring:
Immune to permanent water damage
Impact resistant and immune to termite attacks
Highly durable and dimensionally stable
Suitable for wet areas and for external decking
Non-combustible and easy to work
Lay the sheets with long edges across the joists, with the ends of sheet supported on the centre line of the joist.
For interior applications BGC Compressed Fibre Cement sheets should be bonded together using HydrEpoxy 501, Hydraband 501 or equivalent.
For exterior decking applications leave a 10mm gap between sheets to allow for movement. Insert a 10 mm backing rod into the gap and seal with a Polyurethane flexible sealant.
