Equitone fibre-cement facade at Taronga Zoo

The new Centenary Theatre at Taronga Zoo, Sydney, built to show educational films on conservation, features a facade formed with Equitone’s Tectiva fibre-cement panels. 

The through-coloured facade material, characterized by a sanded surface and naturally occurring hues, is sympathetic to the surrounding zoo, while also hinting at the technological capabilities within. The warm natural character of the Tectiva range is attained during the manufacturing process, where each panel develops a unique texture and colour. Tectiva fibre-cement panels are non-combustible and environmentally friendly and have a long life expectancy.
