WEATHER DEFENCE™

WEATHER DEFENCE™

Have you ever wondered why a lot of the buildings being constructed have a purple sheathing board on the outside?
It's because this purple board is the award wining Siniat Weather Defence

Siniat, the developers of the first gypsum external sheathing board, have seen it specified by 45% of AJ Top 100 architects and over 75% of Construction News' Top 20 main contractors.

So next time you're near a construction site and see a purple building, think Siniat Weather Defence. #anotherpurplebuilding

WHY EVERYONE IS USING WEATHER DEFENCE™

 WEATHER DEFENCE™ the only sheathing board to combine A1 non-combustibility, 12 months exposure on frame and recyclability.

It's the clear choice when it comes to making the building envelope weather-tight. No wonder it's the go-to solution for specifiers.
