The original blue board for fibre cement rendered walls.
Made by James Hardie for over 20 years, HardieTex™ base sheets are the original blue board. Strong and durable, the HardieTex System is a 7.5mm thick fibre cement base sheet that’s finished on site using a third-party texture coat system (which includes joint reinforcement). Ideal for residential homes and home extensions where a rendered look is required without the weight of masonry. Structural and scaffolding costs on second story builds and extensions are reduced by using HardieTex instead of heavy bricks as no bricklayer is needed – a typical requirement for a building rendered brick wall.
