There are many different types of Asbestos Fibre cement Cladding profiles and variances across New Zealand.
A good deal were made in NZ (Auckland and Christchurch) however a large number were also imported in from all over the world with names and trace origins now unknown.
Here are a few names to look out for on building consents and information about residential dwellings
*Fibrolite – Asbestos Fibre Cement Board
*Coverline or Highline
*Hardiflex or Hardiplank
*Villaboard, Versilux, Tilux
Even though Building Plans and Council records show claddings were specified as a certain type or brand, remember that it was commonplace to switch/substitute building products prior to specification in the 2000’s.
