New England cladding

Eurocell is bringing a touch of the American East Coast to the UK with the launch of Coastline, a New England-style lightweight composite cladding range.

Coastline can transform the appearance of a property and add up to 10 years of guaranteed weatherproof performance thanks to its composite formulation: offering minimal contraction and expansion regardless of the weather conditions.

Coastline is available in a range of six New England colours: anthracite grey, moondust grey, pigeon blue, oyster white, soft green and taupe. A matt, embossed woodgrain finish adds to the authentic timber facade effect.

Unlike timber, Coastline is virtually maintenance-free, will not rot or warp and is pest and insect resistant. Its colour-coordinated and powder-coated aluminium trims and end closers means installation is both quick and easy, with no wet trades or adhesives needed. Suitable for buildings up to 18m tall, it is BBA certified and fire tested in the UK by Exova Warringtonfire to conform to BS EN 13501 (Fire Classification for Construction Products).

The system employs an interlocking mechanism that fixes to standard timber battens, with no membranes required. It comes with co-ordinating aluminium trims and end closers and silicone sealants in complementary colours.

Chris Coxon, head of marketing at Eurocell, said: “The growing interest in New England-style cladding means the time is right for Coastline. It delivers a contemporary aesthetic and the new composite material ensures that the cladding will look as good in 10 years as it does at the time of installation, no matter how harsh the environmental conditions. For the contractor, it’s lightweight and the complementary aluminium fixing system makes the job far easier than handling heavier fibre-cement based boards, saving both time and money.”
