Marley Eternit’s Cedral Roadshows were a major success in 2015, with hundreds of people receiving practical advice, demonstrations and hands-on training on how to install the Cedral fibre cement product range.
Over 60 events took place at merchant stockists across the UK, where Cedral Lap and Cedral Click fibre cement weatherboards were showcased to customers, including installers, housebuilders, architects, self builders and DIYers.
The aim of the roadshows was to give an overview of the benefits of the product range and an opportunity to explore the differences in the aesthetics and installation of both Cedral Lap and Cedral Click.
Rob Gould, Cedral Commercial Trainer, commented: “Fibre cement solutions have been growing in popularity in the UK as homeowners, specifiers and housebuilders look to create visually striking and stand-out developments. This means there is a fantastic business opportunity for those involved in this industry.
“We launched the Cedral Roadshow to showcase the product benefits and ease of installation. It was important to us that people went away from the session feeling confident installing and working with Cedral.
“We had a great cross section of attendees visiting the roadshows, from installers who had been fitting Cedral for years to people who had never fitted the product before and we are delighted they were such a success.”
Cedral offers the visual appeal of natural timber, is low maintenance and can stand up to the harshest weather conditions. There is no need to continually repaint it, it is resistant to rot and immune to attack from pests and insects, making it an extremely attractive solution.
In addition to this, Cedral is quick and easy to install and is a durable and long lasting product, with a life expectancy of at least 50 years. The complete range has fire classification A2-s1, d0 to EN13501-1 and can achieve an A+ rating for the lowest environmental impact in the BRE’s Green Guide to Specification.
Rob added: “The sessions were free of charge, and covered everything from how the products are made, the benefits of Cedral and the accessories to use to get the best finish possible. The feedback we had was excellent.”
Building on last year’s events, plans are now underway for 2016. Look out for more details about when the new Cedral training events will be coming to a location near you.
