Create clean, comfortable and safe industrial buildings and warehousing

Eternit have been manufacturing roofing sheets at our factory in Cambridgeshire, that have been designed and used for industrial buildings for over 100 years. Our British made semi-compressed sheets are designed to cope with our unique climate and are designed to absorb 25% of their weight in moisture, this is more than all imported fibre cement sheets available in the UK today.

Eternit sheets are energy efficient, sustainable and durable, which are priorities when constructing or refurbishing an industrial building. The wellbeing of the people using the facilities and the quality of your stock depends on it, but we also know the right design is important. That’s why we’ve developed our solutions in a wide range of colours, so your building can suite your brand or the surrounding environment.

Choose efficiency and durability

Choose efficiency and durability

The equipment used in your business are the key tools to getting the most productivity. Often the equipment is not only physically the largest but also by far the most expensive investment and it should be protected from the elements and theft.

Forklifts and other heavy equipment might look robust but modern machinery is very complex underneath the bonnet with many electronic systems as well as mechanical ones. They should be stored in a dry non humid environment to ensure they last and continue to perform at their best.

When asked for advice in designing buildings for equipment, we know the overall result needs to be practical and safe, whilst keeping to your budget and specification. At the same time, we want the design to fit well in its surrounding environment.

The building needs to be able to withstand the environment created by the great British weather. Eternit sheets are designed to last and have a 50-year life expectancy. Using Eternit sheets on the roof gives an element of flexibility with the building if what it is used for changes over the coming decades.

Make a sound investment

Fibre cement also has very good thermal properties and will help in keeping the machinery warmer in the snowy / sub-zero winters and cooler in summer, protected all year round.

Eternit sheets also have good acoustic performance, in testing Eternit sheets are shown to absorb twice as much sound as metal alternatives. When you are working on the equipment in the pouring rain, inside you will be able to focus on the task in hand instead of being distracted by the drum of the rain on the roof.  

Good building design is essential to your business, with equipment getting larger over the decades it is important to ensure the building is designed with the future of the industry in mind.

Building design considerations must go beyond the look, function and flexibility. There are technical and practical aspects to look at which include orientation, ventilation, lighting and wildlife control, all of which, if not done correctly, can have a real long-term cost to a business. We have a technical team that has over 60 years of building experience giving you ‘Peace of Mind’.

Eternit have been creating roof sheets used on industrial buildings for decades. We have the experience and heritage to help with your new building.
