HomeRAB Pre-Cladding is a cost-effective robust sheet offering resistance to gusting winds to reduce draught and keep your home warm creating comfort inside. Each panel is engineered with a green water repellent sealer to keep moisture out, ensuring the panel remains dry.

The structural stability of fibre cement creates the strength and protection you need for your build meeting the bracing requirements of Very High wind zones, making it the perfect solution for residential buildings. That’s our guarantee of superior performance and peace of mind.

Pre-Cladding products by James Hardie work by equalising the air pressure within the external wall cavity, making the building airtight providing superior weather-tightness, structural bracing and fire protection, whereas traditional flexible wall underlay can struggle to perform in these conditions.

HomeRAB Pre-Cladding is suitable for the exterior of almost all residential buildings including those in very high (VH) wind zones. It is fixed directly to the framing and then vertical joints are sealed over the face.

Our HomeRAB Pre-Cladding is suitable for use behind all James Hardie claddings or alternative claddings such as brick, timber weatherboard, and more.

Easy to install

  • Early close-in avoids delays caused by weather conditions; removing the need to reschedule sub-trades and reducing unplanned equipment hire costs
  • A complete solution for external wall bracing and structural connectivity of studs to top plates; minimising the need for internal bracing elements and for additional top plate fixings
  • Eliminate secondary inspection, the lintel strap can be applied over HomeRAB Pre-Cladding, saving time and producing a flatter wall finish
  • Score and snap with Hardie™ Knife, speeding up installation time and minimsing dust on site
