Is cladding a new product for Fiberon?
No, cladding is a new application for our Symmetry and
Horizon decking products, both recognized for their stunning wood-like
aesthetics, lasting durability, and easy maintenance. Fiberon cladding gives
architects and specifiers a beautiful, long-lasting design option that never
needs re-painting, re-staining, or re-finishing – and that can mean significant
savings on long-term maintenance costs.
Why would I choose a decking product for a cladding application?
Fiberon composite boards have been tested and trusted by contractors for years. They have been designed and manufactured to withstand the rigors of regular foot traffic without sacrificing appearance or performance, so you can feel confident when specifying them for cladding projects.
Plus, unlike ordinary cladding options, Fiberon composite cladding won’t peel, split, crack, or rot. It’s dimensionally stable, easy to install, and deflects only negligible amounts of water – unlike brick or stucco, which absorb water quite readily.
Where can I find Fiberon cladding?
Like all Fiberon products, the cladding is available through a wide network of Fiberon distributors and dealers. Use our “Where to Buy” tool to locate the Fiberon dealer nearest to you.

Does Fiberon provide a complete rain screen system solution?
Fiberon offers a durable composite cladding that provides an elegant wood-like façade for a rain screen application. Cladding is only one component within a rain screen system.
Other elements include: weather-resistive barrier (rated for continuous UV exposure), furring material, and flashing at all penetration points and cladding transitions.
Note that the air gap between the weather-resistive barrier and exterior cladding can be as narrow as 3/8.” This will still enable drainage and drying.
Fiberon composite cladding is a smart choice for rain screen applications because it is easy to source, install, and maintain; does not absorb water readily; and is available in a wide range of rich wood tones, each with multi-tonal streaking and authentic grain patterns.
What are the differences between Symmetry and Horizon?
Both collections feature the same PermaTech cap layer for stain and fade resistance and durable composite construction; however, each has its own distinct look.
Symmetry has a matte finish and subtle multi-tonal streaking. Offered in four earthy colors (Burnt Umber, Cinnabar, Graphite, and Warm Sienna), Symmetry delivers a rich, understated look. Horizon has a more traditional finish and dramatic multi-tonal streaking. Choose from Ipe, Rosewood, Castle Gray, and Tudor Brown.
