Fiber TECHKTONA The Techktona Boards and Planks are non-asbestos made from a mix of cement, cellulose fiber and fire resistant fillers on hatchek machines. It is cured under high pressure steam curing process called autoclaving for dimensional stability and durability. Techktona products have a natural grainy texture that can take on any color, giving you amazing flexibility in design. TECHKTONA The products having excellent resistance against fire, termite and moisture makes it ideal material for varying applications. They can be painted or polished for an authentic wood look. “ Designer Boards and Planks open new horizons to the architect’s creativity which allows them to use in almost all the interior and semi covered exterior of a building” TECHKTONA •The superiority of product lies in its durability and resistance to fire moisture and offers a great maintenance free environment ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY: It is the best substitution to wood with a contemporary range of green products suitable for all modern constructions. |PLANKS| |TECHKTONA PLANKS | AEROCON PLANKS: •An autoclaved fiber cement plank captures the beautiful look of wood. •A perfect siding option – more durable and natural looking.

Fiber cement board is considered the best option for its durability and flexibility. We go for Screwing application for overlapping. This cladding is generally supported by a structural frame or it can also be done on the bitumen primered or water proof coated wall directly by using the concrete screws. STEP 01: •Prepare the wall to be treated and make sure the wall is clear from all undulations and undesired material. The wall surface should be treated with a coat of water proofing material. STEP 02: •The framing structure needed to support the cladding can be of G.I. or Al. •Mark the layout on the wall by making sure that the spacing between the studs is not more than 600mm. •The sections to be used vary with the type of building and the particular requirements of the building. •A typical structure requires a channel stud of dimensions: Web – 48mm, Flange – 32mm, Thickness – 1.0mm. •The anchor clips or brackets, which support the sections, are to be secured to the wall with the help of anchor bolts. STEP 03: •Two horizontal channels are to be placed – one at the top and one at the bottom of the vertical members. These provide support to the edges of the boards. •The studs are then placed at every 600mm centers and are secured to the anchor clips or brackets with the help of self driven screws. Step 04: •The planks are available in widths – 450mm and 600mm and in lengths of 3000mm. •For an overlapping system of cladding, the installation should be started from the bottom. •The overlap between two rows of planks should be at least 25mm. Step 05: Plank fixing: •Each plank should be screwed to each of the studs. •It should be made sure that the screw is 12mm away from the edges and 20mm from the corners of the plank, to avoid any damages and to allow proper fixing. •The screw fasteners can be fixed above or under the lap joint, depending on the customer’s choice.

Contact us Why choose Aerocon Fibre Cement Board or planks over Vinyl Exterior? • It is more energy saving. • It is more fire resistant compared to Vinyl siding. ( The National Institute of Standards and Technology found that, in tests involving vinyl-clad structures in close proximity, fire was observed to spread between two vinyl-clad test structures located six feet apart in fewer than five minutes. Additionally, vinyl siding can release toxic fumes when burning, particularly dioxins. This is not only an environmental concern, but the fumes can be dangerous to fire fighters and bystanders, and the toxic fumes released may increase the likelihood of fatality from smoke inhalation for anyone trapped in the burning structure ) Contact us Why choose Aerocon Techktona Board or planks over Masonite Siding? • Easy workablity. • Longer life ( Masonite are prone to deterioration due to moisture ) • No wrapping. • Less maintenance • Termite resistant. • Moisture resistant. ( Masonite naturally absorbs water and swells slightly. Moisture intake can lead to irremovable mildew, indoor leaks, cracked exterior paint, and damaged nails ) Contact us Why choose Aerocon Fibre Cement Board or planks over Hardboard Siding? • • • • • • Aerocon Fibre Cement Board or planks is much superior to Hardboard siding because It doesn’t wrap. No buckling is observed. Less maintenance. Contact us Termite resistant. Moisture resistant. Fire resistant. And hence a longer life. Why choose Aerocon Fibre Cement Board or planks over Stucco Siding? • Better Moisture resistance . ( Stucco does not work well in wet climates. If water from rain or snow seeps inside the concrete-like shell through a joint or crack, the moisture could damage the wood frame underneath the stucco, causing the wood to rot ) • Cost effective . ( Stucco siding requires several layers, so a large portion of your stucco budget is going to go to those you hire to apply it ) • Less Maintenance and Longer life. (Because stucco is damaged so easily, it requires more maintenance than other siding materials. Holes and cracks must be patched as soon as you notice them so that water doesn't have a chance to get beneath the surface and cause further damage) Contact us CONTACT US Green Ventures Address: 32/1136,1137, South Kalamaserry, N.H.47, Kochi, Kerala 682033 India Email id : email@example.com Mobile : 9895195461 .
