Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding

Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding


Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding evokes a striking, contemporary aesthetic with wide grooves and bespoke design flexibility.

A fresh slant on a modern home design

Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding is the only Hardie™ exterior cladding with a slanted groove edge, delivering highlights and shadows. Available in 200mm and 300mm widths, these 14mm thick shiplap boards offer multiple installation options and allow for simple alternation or unique combinations. The boards are primed and ready to paint. Similar in appearance to standing seam metal cladding it's an easy-to-install fibre cement solution.

Key features

  • Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding does not require specialist installers, helping to reduce the number of trades onsite and the complexity of the installation.
  • For vertical installation 2750mm lengths suit common wall heights which can help reduce waste. 4200mm lengths give tall walls a continuous look, reducing the need for horizontal joints.
  • Deemed non-combustible. Up to 60 minute Fire Resistance Level (FRL) can be achieved when installed as part of the Hardie™ Smart Fire & Acoustic Wall System.
  • Deemed non-combustible. Adheres to Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) requirements up to BAL40.
