Kestrel Launches Kavex Shiplap Cladding

Kavex Shiplap Cladding

Kestrel, one of the leading manufacturers of no lead, no tin, 100% calcium organic PVC-UE and PVC-U building products, is pleased to announce the launch of Kavex – the PVC-UE Shiplap Cladding alternative to timber.

"With sustainability and value for money top of mind, Specifiers are already choosing Kavex for its authentic timber aesthetics and maintenance free attributes," explains Sales and Marketing Director Owen Thorogood. "Traditional timber cladding and weatherboarding is susceptible to weathering and typically needs a significant amount of time invested in it to maintain its appearance and performance. Kavex offers the perfect solution as it is indistinguishable from timber, and because it is completely unaffected by rot and decay we are able to offer it with a 15 year guarantee for added peace of mind. Kavex is available in five colours to match any installation and offers much improved lifetime costs compared with timber.

"We work with a lot of housing associations, builders and installers and although they all operate in very different sectors, they are all experiencing the same thing – customers’ expectations are increasing. Whether a resident in a housing association property or homeowner in their own home, people want more sustainability, better quality, lower maintenance products that also give them value for money. Kavex can deliver on all of these things and more."
