Euroform having invested years of experience, expertise and commitment to excellence in creating a cement particle board that is specified for its quality, performance and reliability. The result is Versapanel, one of the most comprehensively tested cement particle boards on the market.

Meticulously researched and aggressively tested, Versapanel is a product of which we are justifiably proud and a product in which you can be justifiably confident.

Our goal with Versapanel was always to create a product that would become synonymous with ‘cement particle board’ in much the same way that Hoover is now synonymous with ‘vacuum cleaner’. Our latest research tells us we’re well on the way to achieving that goal.

Versapanel is:

  • Comprehensively tested
  • Class ‘O’ fire rating
  • Fully external/internal
  • Offers FSC Chain of Custody certification (see Versapanel Eco)
  • Rot, moisture and impact resist­ance
  • CE marked
  • Available in bespoke sizes and edge details
  • Has its own range of approved fixings

Versapanel is one of the most ver­satile building boards on the market and can be widely used in many projects for a range of applications such as:

  • Sheathing Panel for Steel Frame Systems
  • Sheathing Panel for External Wall Insulation
  • Partition Walls for Fire and Acoustic Performance
  • Acoustic Floors, Roof and Ceilings

We are confident that we have the cement particle board to suit the particular requirements of practically any construction project. Use the handy table below to select that Versapanel size, finish and detail for your needs.

Robust testing is at the heart of everything we do at Euroform and is very much a part of our ethos of continuous improvement.

We don’t want Versapanel to simply be ‘fit for purpose’, meeting current building regulations because it has to; we want to a cement particle board that goes beyond current legislation and anticipate the legislative changes of tomorrow.

  • BS EN 634 1 and 2, governing particle boards’ and wood-based panels’ tensile strength, mechanical properties, density, load factors and resistance to humidity, frost and hard body impact.
  • BS 476 Part 22, determination of the fire resistance of non-loadbearing elements of building construction when subjected to the heating and pressure conditions.
  • European classification to EN 13501-1: B1 (B-s1 d0 excluding floors), (Bfl-s1 floors)

Yes, it’s exactly the same.

Why is it called Versapanel Eco®?

Why not have all Versapanel as FSC® supply?

Due to high demand there will be limited availability and not all orders require FSC®.

Declaration of Performance (DoP) for Versapanel

It is unsurprising, therefore, to learn that Versapanel is the most searched for cement particle board online in the United Kingdom (according to independent data generated by Google).

There are several very good reasons why an architect might specify Versapanel, but chief amongst them is the fact that it’s manufactured to BS (British Standards) EN 634 1 and 2. British Standards are, according to the British Standards Institute, a “powerful tool” that “allows a company to… develop and maintain best practice” and acts “as a respected badge of quality, safety and performance”.
