Allura’s Architectural Panels with EasyTrim Reveals 

Advanced Panels Make it Easy for Architects to Stand Out


June 29, 2014 – (Houston, TX) – For any builder or architect, to create an interesting structure that stands out amongst the competition and attracts a potential buyer can be challenging. To add to the challenge, designers look for ample design choices, eco-friendly materials, and easy installation methods for quick construction. Then, the feat becomes pulling it all together on time and budget, so that the end product is pleasing to the eye, profitable and paramount in its surroundings.

Introducing Allura’s premier fiber cement Architectural Panels with EasyTrim Reveals, by Plycem that offer a modern look for less money, with long-lasting, sustainable materials that install easily and can stand up to harsh weather and any climate. 

Making a statement has never been so convenient with Allura’s architectural panels due to the variety of choices for texture and color. The sleek, contemporary lines of the aluminum exterior system are seamless, durable and cost-efficient, not to mention eye-catching. Architects can dress up a design with daring hues and bold strokes of ingenuity to become the talk of the town. Gone are the days of using generic cladding materials that will eventually rot, crack and end up in a landfill. Allura is backed by an industry-leading warranty, resists moisture and decay. The innovative-engineered technology of the material creates a product that is not only weather resistant, but non-combustible with a Class A (1) flame spread rating. Allura premier fiber cement is impervious to wood-boring insects and stands up to freeze/thaw cycles, salt spray and is tested in accordance with ASTM C1186 requirements. These standards include a stringent review of flexural strength, moisture movement, frost resistance, transverse loading and water absorption.
