The weatherboard look is increasingly trending for exterior facades. Being a versatile aesthetic, it can blend with a building’s surroundings and style to look traditional or modern.

Innova™’s Nuline™ Plus is well-known for offering insulation and protection against the elements, making it as practical as it is visually appealing. Traditionally, weatherboards are made from timber; however, Innova™ offers a fibre cement weatherboard system that has a different take on this look.

Welcome to Innova™’s Nuline™ Plus weatherboard-style cladding system. This fibre cement cladding offers the style of weatherboard facades with a host of other benefits.

An introduction to the Nuline™ Plus range

The Innova™ Nuline™ Plus range is the perfect choice if you’re looking for an attractive and hardwearing option for finishing the exterior facade of a building.

Nuline™ Plus is made from Innova™, which is a durable material option for weatherboarding products.

The tongue and groove fitting system enables easy joins on any project, while the bevel on the rear of individual fibre cement weatherboards allows seamless fixing and nailing.

Explore the features and benefits of Nuline Plus

One of its most outstanding features is that fibre cement is highly durable and, unlike other traditional products, it is not susceptible to twisting, timber rot, ant damage or decay.

Nuline™ Plus cladding is also resistant to water damage, sunlight exposure, salt, and temperature extremes, making it suitable for just about any building in any setting.

Nuline™ Plus cladding is a fire-resistant fibre cement board that complies with BAL-40 as required in AS3959:2018 – Construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas.

In fact, Nuline™ Plus cladding demonstrates superb performance against four key fire indices:

  • Ignition index = 0
  • Spread of flame index = 0
  • Heat evolved index = 0
  • Smoke developed index = 0-1

Building contractors love Nuline™ Plus cladding for its quick and easy installation, which can be achieved by manual nailing, gun nailing or screw fixing.

Weatherboards can be joined off-stud thanks to the innovative tongue and groove joining system. This means a more uniform joint and boosts weatherproofing too. Installers appreciate the bevel edge on the rear of each weatherboard, allowing the board to have a 25mm bearing face on the stud for enhanced nailing and fixing.

The Nuline™ Plus range offers two profiles to allow you to extend your options, with Nuline Plus Bullnose and Nuline Plus Square.

The bullnose profile is exclusive to the Innova™ range, proudly the only fibre cement supplier in Australia to offer the bullnose, which is perfect for lending a period look to more traditional homes.

The square option has sharp, straight edges while a bullnose weatherboard incorporates a gentle curve at the outer edge.

This creates a more traditional or even rustic look when fixed on the exterior of buildings, making it perfect for homes with a beachside or country aesthetic. The bullnose profile is suited to older homes or those that have an ‘Australian Hamptons’ feel about them.

Meanwhile, the square profile is your choice for a clean and contemporary vibe. This style looks just great on more modern homes.

With two profiles to choose from, you’re covered in whatever style of project you’re working on.

Finally, because the fibre cement panels are factory sealed, Nuline™ Plus weatherboards are ready for painting as soon as they are installed on-site. With the quick finish, a stunning transformation of any property can be easily achieved.
