Formica Group brings pre-packed Scandi-style cladding to UK shelves

Formica Group, a manufacturer of surfacing products has introduced VIVIX Lap high performance exterior weatherboard cladding. VIVIX Lap is said to be a modern alternative to wood and fibre cement plank cladding, reportedly providing ‘great looks, quick and simple installation’ and requiring ‘little’ ongoing maintenance.

Pre-cut VIVIX Lap planks are applied in an overlap arrangement, reportedly providing a ‘classic’ cladding style, with a ‘modern twist’. Aimed at residential and commercial audiences, including installers and self-builders, VIVIX Lap planks can be applied to everything from new-build housing and renovation projects, garden offices, sheds and garages, to commercial business parks and retail outlets.

Described as lightweight, easy to install and moisture-resistant, VIVIX Lap cladding does not require pre or post-installation treatments or need to be painted during its lifetime. A simple screw-fixed solution, fixings are concealed by the next overlapping plank to create, sleek, clean lines. A range of complementary colour-matched finishing profiles and trims are available to create the perfect finish.

According to Formica Group, VIVIX Lap cladding is a cost-effective way to improve the look and efficiency of older buildings, as it can be installed into existing schemes and can be designed to include additional insulation. VIVIX Lap planks can also be used to fully clad new-builds or create a design feature alongside materials such as brick, render or glass.

VIVIX Lap comes in packs of four, 2990mm (length) by 180mm (height) planks, in a 6mm thickness, which can be applied directly onto the cladding support frame or cut to size/site modified if required, with minimal dust or mess.

Available in eight plain colours from fresh alpino to sleek diamond black, as well as four TrueScale wood decors, VIVIX Lap comes with a complete range of complementary colour-matched accessories including installation profiles and trims and screws.
