Knauf AQUAPANEL ® cement boards are combined with high-quality products to provide a full exterior and interior ceiling system supplied by a single manufacturer – Knauf, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lightweight building materials and systems.
Knauf provides a one-stop-shop for ceiling design and specification where protection against high humidity and chemicals is required. The new Knauf AQUAPANEL ® cement boards are water-resistant and made from inorganic materials which prevent mildew from spreading.
Both Knauf AQUAPANEL® Exterior and Interior Systems are simple to install and allow for the creation of spectacular ceilings.
Knauf makes the specification of a ceiling in wet indoor and exterior environments easy, offering support from one single point of contact throughout the project from the design stage, with reviews of the architectural drawings, to regular site visits during installation.
Unique to the market, the Knauf AQUAPANEL ® Exterior Ceiling System is a high-performance, economical and sustainable solution for dry lining style construction of exteriors. Ideal for exterior ceilings and soffits, the solution is perfect for situations where ceilings are exposed to moisture, wind loading and coastal environments, regardless of their location.
Knauf AQUAPANEL SkyLite or AQUAPANEL Exterior (windload >1.5kN/m2) is fixed to the suspended coated metal structure which has a protective coating, achieving a C3 class for corrosion resistance and making it suitable for outdoor areas in both residential and industrial atmospheres, with moderate sulphur dioxide pollution to coastal areas with low salinity. The system can then be finished with Knauf External Renders.
Where moisture is present in internal environments, such as swimming pools, bathrooms and spa rooms, the Knauf AQUAPANEL ® Interior Ceiling System provides the perfect solution. Once again, Knauf AQUAPANEL SkyLite (a lightweight 8mm board) is combined with Knauf C3 Metal components. Knauf AQUAPANEL Interior skim completes the system.
The introduction of these ceiling systems now allow Knauf to offer complete solutions for walls and ceilings in interior and exterior environments.
