The beauty of wood meets composite technology

Fiberon Composite Cladding for Rainscreen Applications combines the beauty and warmth of wood with the durability of low-maintenance, high-performance composite materials.

Horizon and Symmetry in Action

Rain screen systems are an effective, eco-friendly way to manage moisture in the building envelope. A key element is durable cladding that deflects water and adds aesthetic appeal. Fiberon cladding is the answer.

Available in eight striking, multi-tonal colors that emulate natural hardwoods, Fiberon composite cladding delivers a range of benefits not found with wood, fiber-cement, or other common materials. A solid wood-composite core prevents splintering, cracking, insect infestation, and decay. The four-sided, patented PermaTech® cap layer delivers exceptional stain and fade resistance. Fiberon cladding is easy to install and never needs painting, staining, or refinishing, so long-term costs of ownership are significantly lower, too.

  • Priced competitively to wood

    Fiberon is priced competitively to wood and costs less than most rainforest wood cladding or engineered cladding products. Fiberon Horizon and Symmetry boards are a board-for-board replacement for wood – the installation process and cost to install is comparable to wood cladding.

  • FAQs
    How do I install Fiberon cladding?

    Generally speaking, Fiberon cladding can be installed by workers on ladders. In most cases, there’s no need for scaffolding or other special arrangements. You can secure the planks using composite deck screws or, for a more upscale, flawless appearance, use Cortex hidden face-fastening screws with color-matched plugs. Screw in the Cortex fasteners; then, tap in the color-matched plug, available in all eight Fiberon cladding colors. See installation instructions.

    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.

    Is cladding a new product for Fiberon?

    In 2019 Fiberon launched Fiberon Composite Cladding as a response to growing popularity of mixed material building designs. This collection is available in a nominal 1 in. x 6 in. open--joint profile. A variety of lengths provide more design options which result in fewer seams for a cleaner aesthetic.

    Additionally, cladding is an approved alternate application for our Symmetry and Horizon decking products. Symmetry and Horizon are both recognized for their stunning wood-like aesthetics, lasting durability, and easy maintenance.

    Fiberon composite materials give architects and specifiers beautiful, long-lasting design options that never needs re-painting, re-staining, or re-finishing – and that can mean significant savings on long-term maintenance costs.
