Equitone’s Tectiva Chosen To Clad New Theatre In The Heart Of Taronga Zoo
With a combination of unique natural texture, colour and surface, Equitone’s fibre cement cladding sheet Tectiva was an obvious choice for the Tanner Kibble Denton Architects designed Taronga Centenary Theatre.
Given the leafy setting of Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, the colour tones of the theatre’s façade needed to be sympathetic to the surroundings. Equitone’s TE20 through-coloured finished Tectiva with its sanded surface and naturally occurring hues achieved just that.
At a thickness of 8mm, Tectiva offers high durability with an incredible longevity but remains light enough to allow for fast and easy installation. The product’s waterproof shield not only protects but enhances the natural warmth of the rough unpolished fibre cement. Other benefits of Tectiva and Equitone’s other products are their non-combustibility and environmentally-friendliness.
