Cembrit Trade Events Set for April & May
We are pleased to announce that Cembrit are coming to a number of our branches in April and May to talk through Cembrit Plank, the ideal alternative to timber weatherboarding.
These events will also be a chance to find out about the VADO Rally 2018, which we are taking part in with a joint and, hopefully unbeatable, Cembrit-Chandlers team; Team 10CC. The VADO Rally 2018 is a fundraising event where teams rally through some of Europe's greatest cities and scenery in a car worth no more than £500. This year, the event is raising money for the Rainy Day Trust and Variety.
Variety is a charity which improves the lives of children and young people throughout the UK who are sick, disabled or disadvantaged, and the Rainy Day Trust, is the UK's only charity supporting the home improvement workforce and their families in times of need.
With our Chandlers team securing 2nd place and the Cembrit team finishing in 3rd place in last year's Pavestone Rally 2017, we have decided to join forces in attempt to take the 1st place spot in the VADO Rally 2018!
And the car, we hear you ask, which car would we choose to help take us to victory? The answer - a 17 year old Vauxhall Vectra!
What will be happening at the trade events?
Cembrit will be talking about their range of Plank and the benefits of using the fibre cement product that looks like wood but with none of its disadvantages. Visitors will be able to get to know the product and ask the experts any questions they may have. Until the end of June 2018, you can also take advantage of our introductory price on Cembrit Plank of just £9.50 + VAT per plank (3600x180x8mm).
We also plan to have our Vectra at each of the events so we can talk about the VADO Rally 2018. Our Cembrit-Chandlers Team 10CC has a fundrasing target of £10,000 so if you are feeling generous, you can donate online. All donations are gratefully received, no matter how big or small. Of course, you can always donate in person at the trade events. You can follow our Rally adventures on the team's Facebook page.
We also plan, weather permitting, to have a BBQ going at these events so we can offer our visitors fresh food straight off the grill!
Why choose Cembrit Plank?
Cembrit Plank is a fibre cement product designed to look like wood, but unlike wood, it comes without the rot and fire risk. The alternative to traditional timber weatherboarding, Cembrit Plank does not require preservative treatment.
The Planks are lightweight but with great strength. The ability to withstand extremes of temperature, rain, frost and sun are one of the biggest benefits of Cembrit Plank.
The high pH value creates a durable facade, enable resistance to algae and bacteria and the growth of moss and fungi.
At Chandlers, we have 7 colours of Cembrit Plank available: Oyster White, Silk Grey, Basalt Grey, Agate Grey, Signal Black, Pure White and Seafoam. These options are factory painted on to the surface of each plank to allow for a consistent finish.
The typical long service life of fibre cement gives maximum resistance to exterior exposure that is backed by a Cembrit 15 year warranty – the highest warranty in the market. Plank can be installed vertically, horizontally or in other patterns to enhance your design.
