Green Solutions

 

Why Green?

 

 

The built environment has a vast impact on the natural environment, human health and the economy. By adopting green building strategies, we can maximise economic, social and environmental performance.

 

 

Green construction methods can be integrated into buildings at any stage, from design and construction, to renovation and deconstruction. However, the most significant benefits can be obtained if the design and construction team take an integrated approach towards going green, from the initial stages of a building project.

 

 

These contemporary green building materials are suitable for all modern and conventional constructions, and contribute in earning significant LEED points. The simplicity and embedded beauty with added resistance against moisture, fire and termite makes them a perfect material for applications ranging from roof sarking to flooring.

 

 

Fibre cement boards

Everest has vast experience in producing over 1 billion sq. m. of roofing and over 48 million sq. m. of fibre cement boards. The current capacity for producing non-asbestos fibre cement roofing and boards is 14 million sq. m. and 16 million sq. m. per annum respectively. All products conform to International Standards and are manufactured using the latest European Technology. The combination of clean, Green Products and innovative building solutions along with trained manpower enables Everest to provide excellent pre and post-sales service.

At Everest, we cater to the changing needs of modern day architecture, through our dynamic product line. Green Solutions is an endeavour to save the planet by lowering the carbon footprint caused during construction. At the core of the solution lie Everest Fibre Cement Boards, an advanced green material, regarded as the best substitute to natural wood and wood based products. Made from 40% recycled content, Everest fibre  Cement Boards boast excellent relocatability and thus serve as a clean, green material. Everest Fibre Cement Boards are manufactured using state-of-the-art Hatschek process and advanced Online Thickness Control System. Besides, these boards are also cured in Autoclaves at high temperature and under high pressure steam for increased strength, density and durability. This contemporaty green building material is suitable for all modern and conventional constructions, and contributes in earning significant LEED points. The simplicity and embedded beauty with added resistance against moisture, fire and termite make them the perfect material for applications ranging from roof sarking to flooring.

Composition

 

Everest range of Fibre Cement Boards is manufactured from a homogeneous mixture of Portland cement, treated cellulose fibres, finely ground silica quartz and other selected mineral fillers in a state-of-the-art unit using sophisticated, digitally controlled processes. The principal components of the mixture are cement and cellulose fibre. Cement acts as a hydraulic binder and the cellulose fibres interlock with the cement and quartz matrices to add strength to the boards. No asbestos is used during the entire process, making Everest products 100% asbestos-free and environment friendly.
