Nature Provides the Ingredients

Using water, sand, cement and cellulose fibres, combined with SHERA's unique autocloave treatment during the curing process, the end result is a very strong and durable fibre cement composite material, extremely light weight for it's strength!

Results That Rock!

The perfect alternative to traditional wood siding, SHERA plank is easy to maintain, tough, rot and fire resistant. SHERA plank is a unique fibre cement composite consisting of natural fibres bonded tightly in a high-grade silicate structure. The result is a material that is highly durable, flexible, water resistant, fire proof, resistant to insects and chemical corrosion. SHERA planks are also highly workable using normal tools; in short: they can be used in all kinds of applications by architects, project developers and home owners.
