Cedral Weatherboard manufactured by Marley Eternit

A Building clad in Cedral Weatherboard

Cedral Weatherboard looks like timber, is easy to install, doesn't rot and is an attractive, low maintenance alternative to PVCu and wood. Cedral Weatherboard is a popular choice as a feature on modern buildings, particularly in coastal locations.

Cedral Weatherboard is supplied in a range of 22 Factory applied colours and woodstains or can be supplied in its natural manufactured state for on-site finishing.

What fixings to use for Cedral Lap Weatherboard?

Posted on March 2017

    Marley Cedral Lap Weatherboard Cladding can be installed using either nail or screw fixings, but importantly they must be stainless steel to avoid run marks which otherwise can occur over a number of years.

    Countersunk Screw Fixings - Southern Sheeting supply a high quality stainless steel counter sunk screws designed specifically to self-screw through the fibre cement cladding into the timber battens. These fixings are 45mm long x 4.2mm diameter and are supplied in boxes of 200 with a square driver bit included. It is worth noting when comparing prices against other stainless steel screws of similar length, that these fixings will self-screw through fibre cement whereas a standard woodscrew will burn out and require predrilling on every hole.

    Hammer in Nails - Stainless steel ring shank nails 45mm long x 2.8mm diameter. Sold in boxes of 500 these are a popular and cost effective fixing for Cedral Lap Weatherboard. Please note that you will always need to predrill the end fixings to avoid shattering the board. From our own experience these are not the fastest way to install weatherboard and can be difficult to work with compared to the other fixing options.

    Nail Gun Fixings - 1st fix nail gun type fixings are the fastest way to install Cedral Lap Weatherboard and certainly to be advised on any large projects. Southern Sheeting supply nails suitable for most leading brand nail guns including the popular Paslode IM350+ (unfortunately our nails are not compatible with the IM360 gun). At just £34 (+VAT) for a box of 1,100 nails & 1 fuel cell, these are the most economical and time efficient fixings on the market. If you do not own a nail gun then we can also supply a high quality gun (Quikload QL90 1st Fix Gas Nail Gun) with a free pack of stainless steel fixings at just £250 (+VAT) - a worthwhile investment and a time saver for any medium to large weatherboard project.

    Colour Head Fixings - Pan head stainless steel fixings which are colour matched to the Cedral weatherboard are used along the top run of boards and around window/door reveals where the fixing is not hidden by the lap of the board. Not to be confused with the other 3 fixing types above, these are decorative fixings and only a few are required per job in addition to the main fixings. Colour Head Cedral Screws are 38mm long x 4.8mm diameter in boxes of 100 with driver bit included. (With batten centres advised every 600mm you would use 7 fixings per board but to allow for wastage and the odd extra fixing here and there we will always calculate 9 fixing per board).

    All the above fixings can be purchased online here Accessories

                  Operal Board / Cedral Board

                  Posted on June 18 2015
                    Due to the increase in popularity in using Marley's fibre cement Operal board for Soffits and fascias on weatherboard projects, they have now released a smaller version of the board - 'Cedral Board'.

                    This is effectively the same product as the more recognised "Operal Board" which is a 9mm thick, flat cement board with an embossed finish and painted to suit the colour of weatherboard.

                    The difference with the "Cedral Board" is that it is now available in some of the more popular colours in thinner widths to prevent as much on site cutting.

                    The new Cerdal Boards are available in 2.5m long lengths and widths of 200mm, 300mm and 400mm. It is available from Marley stock in the following colours:

                    • C01 White
                    • C03 Grey Brown
                    • C04 Dark Brown
                    • C05 Grey
                    • C07 Cream White
                    • C14 Atlas Brown
                    • C18 Slate Grey
                    • C50 Black
                    • C54 Pewter


                    For all other colours the original Operal board size of 3.050 x 1200mm will still be available to order.

                      Cedral Click

                      Posted on May 12 2015
                        You may by now be aware of the Marley Cedral Click Weatherboard which is similar to the standard lap board but instead feathers a tongue and groove board with a secret fix clip system.

                        Whilst we are able to supply this product, as yet we are not stocking Click so can currently only supply orders in full pallet quantities (144 boards per pallet). We can however supply Click trims in any quantity required but do not split the pallets of boards.

                        If you are looking for a price comparison, as a very rough guide we have found Cedral Click to be just over twice the cost of the standard lap board by the time you take into account the price difference all the boards and accessories required.

                        If you have any Cedral Click enquiries please do not hesitate to contact us.

                        Have you seen the new Marley Cedral Colours yet?

                              After many requests from our customers for a weatherboard display showing where and how the trims are fitted - we now have one!

                                Our weatherboard storeman Clive has put together a miniature building from old pallets which incorporate every available weatherboard trim. So if anybody is unsure of how the Cedral weatherboard system works or how it looks fitted, then we welcome you to come and visit us. We will be happy to talk you through the installation process for the boards and aluminium trims, plus show you the complete colour range of which we stock them all.

                                (Please see below images of our new display and in case you are interested the roof is a tile effect steel sheet system and the guttering is the black galvanised Lindab Rainline system which are both also stock items).

                              Southern Sheeting Supplies now stocking the 'Hang-n-Nail' fibre cement weatherboard hanging tool.

                                We often get asked which colours of Marley Eternit Weatherboard we keep from stock. The simple answer is "All of them"! Southern Sheeting Supplies is the largest stockist in the UK, keeping EVERY available colour in the Boards, Trims, Paint and Screws.

                                We have a purpose built unit to hold all this stock and thought it would be worth posting a few pictures to show the volume that we can supply directly off the shelf.

                                It is important to note that our holding yard for Weatherboard is about 1mile away from our main office and warehouse address. If you wanted to collect some weatherboard materials it is always best to give us advanced notice so that we can pick and palletize your order ready for collection.

                                We do however keep a colour chart at the office address if you simply wanted to come in to see colour options and/or discuss your project in more detail.

Not only does the Hang-n-Nail ensure the perfect 30mm lap every time, it will also hold the board in place while installing - meaning one person can fit the board by themselves.

                              • Already a huge seller in the US, the Hang-n-Nail is now available through Southern Sheeting Supplies at a retail price of £67.50+VAT for a pair. We would advise a pair of these hangers on any project of over 60 planks as they really do pay for themselves due to the ease and speed that they bring to cladding installation.

                              Posted on October 12, 2012

                              Marley Eternit have released two new aluminium trims that are now available to order.

                              • External Corner Bay trim - Similar to the external corner trims but this version is designed for corner at 45degree rather than 90degree. Ideal for bay windows and also on some buildings that have 135degree angled corners that previously proved difficult to combat with the original trim details.

                              • 65mm End Profiles - Similar to the original end profiles but these have a 65mm back leg instead of the 45mm. These trims are used at the end of a run of cladding and will not only cover the weatherboard edge but will also cover the batten.

                              • External Corner Cap - A plastic bung cap that fits inside the external corners. These should be used when the base of external corners are visible at 1st floor level to avoid looking up at a hollow fitting. (Only available in black)

                              Fibre Cement Weathboard Guillotine

                              Posted on October 5, 2012

                              Southern Sheeting Supplies are now stocking guillotines to make cutting Cedral Weatherboard easy, accurate, with no mess and giving a really neat finished edge.

                              We have often been asked what the best method to cut these boards and have always advised either a hand saw or a circular saw. Whilst both options do the job, neither are as quick and simple as a guillotine which is also the recognised tool in the US where Fibre Cement cladding is seen everywhere.

                              Cement boards are known to quickly dull circular saw blades that can soon become an extra expense not first accounted for on cladding projects. The guillotines however use a blunt blade which never needs sharpening or replacing.

                              So with our guillotines priced at just £45+VAT each it make them great value for anybody about to undertake even the smallest of Weatherboard projects.

                              NOTE: These guillotines are designed for straight cuts only. We are currently sourcing a premium model that also allows angled cuts ideal for cladding a gable end.

                              New Weatherboard Colour - Slate Grey

                              Posted on September 12, 2012

                              Southern Sheeting Supplies become the first stockist of Marley Eternit's new Slate Grey coloured weatherboard. The new colour has already proved a hit overseas and has recently been released by Marley in the UK.

                              We are now pleased to be the first to be keeping the new colour from stock and expect it to be one of our most popular colours. With at least 2 pallets available at any one time we hope to be able to fulfil most orders of C18 Slate Grey with a fast delivery turnaround.
