A highly durable construction material
Fibre cement is an extremely versatile material that can be used in a variety of ways. Perfectly matching raw materials and ongoing innovation are at the heart of the success of a product that is over 100 years old and has never gone out of style. Without it, architecture is inconceivable.
Our fibre cement consists of cement, cellulose, water, recyclable synthetic fibres and air. The combination of these ingredients results in an light and durable building material compared to other building materials. When touched, you can feel its homogeneous materiality and surface quality. Visually it has a unique character and, depending on the processing technology, individual texture.
There are many different uses for fibre cement, but it is most prominently used for building envelope cladding, roof and facade. It is a popular material for all types of buildings, from apartment complexes, private homes, public buildings to warehouses and industrial complexes.
Fibre cement has long been an excellent design material due to its formability in the wet state and its exceptional strength when dry.
From Max Bill to Le Corbusier and Haefeli Moser Steiger to Herzog & de Meuron, Rafael Viñoly and Morphosis: fibre cement has inspired great designers. What they have in common is a passion for sophistication and the courage to explore new possibilities.
The Expo pavilion in New York by Gustav Peichl, the church at Steinhof in Vienna by Otto Wagner, the Ortsstockhaus in Braunwald by Hans Leuzinger and the Maison Blanche in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Le Corbusier are just a few contemporary witnesses in the success story of our fibre cement.
The building envelope is the defining element of any building. The first and the lasting impression.
The material fibre cement is characterised by a natural texture and surface quality. Different processing techniques give each fiber cement panel its own character, which is characterised by an independent surface structure, colorfulness and through-colouring - whether through-coloured or gray, flat, sanded or profiled, glazed or opaque coated.
Swisspearl roof and facade products include groups that emphasise the authenticity of the material or create a unique look through exciting colour ranges. We also realise special colours on request.
Fiber cement panels are extremely stable and robust, but the material is still easy to handle. Perforations, for example, give facades and also interior walls an exciting surface look, let plenty of natural light in, and are outstandingly unique. Unusual effects can be achieved with holes, slots, or any freely selectable shape. Perforated panels can be used for aesthetics or for a specific function (e.g., sliding shutters, special lighting concepts, wind protection, partition walls, soundproofing elements, etc.).
Likewise, geometric shapes, individual patterns, company logos, or image motifs can be ornamented on individual panels or across several panels in order to create a larger overall image.
Architecturally inspiring. Swisspearl uniquely combines functionality and great aesthetics. The many available shapes and colours offer you almost unlimited design possibilities for high-quality facades.
Ecological. At Swisspearl, we are aware of our responsibility, and we continuously work towards becoming more sustainable – we create first class fibre-cement products. That is why we are proud to deliver products to sustainable and architecturally remarkable buildings across Europe.
Safety. The durable fibre cement products optimally protect the facade and roof construction from strong weather or external influences and thus guarantee a durable, safe building envelope for decades.
Low maintenance. Thanks to the highly durable surface finish Swisspearl panels are durable, extremely resistant, and nearly maintenance-free.
Our products form part of structures ideal for energy efficiency renovations to existing buildings with inferior insulation. Fitting the external facade with thermal insulation and fibre cement not only provides a robust solution to drive down heating costs and improve living comfort, but also to improve the aesthetics of the building
The elements are transformed into unique facade, roof, and garden products through expertise, precision, and craftsmanship. Cement, cellulose, and reinforcing fibres are mixed with water to form a raw mass. This mass is carefully rolled up, pressed, cut, dried, and dyed while the quality is constantly checked. But only when the material meets the highest standards in all respects does it become Swisspearl fibre cement.
We would love to assist you with your project. Our high-quality products made from natural fibre cement combine excellent quality and durability to achieve sustainable solutions for aesthetic building envelopes and exquisite living spaces.
