Key Features

  • A steel-reinforced structural panel ideally suited to a broad range of fire-resistant construction applications.
  • In roofs, gain the durability of Portland cement on a sloped roof. Nailable CemSteel roofing shingles are the solution to the problems of fire-retardant treated (FRT) plywood.
  • In walls, ideal for security wall sheathing or applications where impact and abuse is a concern (high shear/diaphragm resistance values).
  • Non-combustible, with 1 & 2 hour fire-rated floor/ceiling assemblies.
  • Highly resistant to weather, moisture, mold/fungus and termite/vermin attack.
  • Strong and durable, resistant to impact and abuse.
  • Easily installed using carpentry tools and equipment, for single trade installation.
