Our company culture is built on providing a foundation of “zero harm”, creating a positive impact in communities, and delivering environmentally responsible and innovative solutions to customers. Our durable, low maintenance products are made from natural and sustainable raw materials and provide our customers with endless design possibilities.
Through extensive research and development, we are now on our seventh generation of fibre cement technology. Fibre cement cladding is a durable, long-lasting, and low-maintenance material used on residential houses as well as some commercial projects. It’s a semi-rigid material that provides substantial protection, while still maintaining some flexibility.
We are the world’s leading manufacturer of high-performance fibre cement products, made from cement, reinforced with cellulose fibres. We are a trusted innovator and global industry leader, and our products enable endless possibilities for designing exceptional buildings whilst also delivering protection and long-lasting beauty.
We offer A2 fire rated coloured facades through our Hardie® Plank, Hardie® VL Plank and Hardie® Panel products. Thanks to our strong investment in research and development for our ColourPlus™ Technology finishes, we can offer an industry leading 15-year warranty.
Having originally joined NBS in the early 2000s to build relationships with architects and designers, we’re now able to serve the market by providing NBS clauses to our specifier customers.
"NBS Source makes specifying our products so much easier for our customers as it directly integrates with NBS Chorus, where they produce their specifications. I’d recommend NBS Source to all manufacturers because of its simplicity. It’s interactive, easy to use and automatically creates the Uniclass clauses."
